Drought Continues to Expand- Now at 14% Statewide- All to be Found in Northwestern Oklahoma

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 12:17:17 CDT

Drought Continues to Expand- Now at 14% Statewide- All to be Found in Northwestern Oklahoma Drought continues to expand. The new drought monitor(shown above) released Thursday morning shows a large increase in D1 (moderate) drought across northwestern Oklahoma, including virtually all of the Oklahoma Panhandle.


Gary McManus, State Climatologist for Oklahoma, says in his latest Mesonet Ticker "We now see 14% of the state in that D1 drought, all up in the NW, and 35% of the state in at least D0 (abnormally dry) conditions. We continue with the growing deficits and days without significant rain in that area of the state." One week ago, drought was seen in eight percent of Oklahoma- all in those same western areas.


McManus adds that "There is moisture in the forecast with several chances of rain over the next week or so." The map below shows the prospects that are ahead, as far as rainfall is concerned. Timing suggests that we could be looking at storms Saturday night into Easter morning- and some rainfall in the mix again next Wednesday.
