Dry Conditions Tick Up in Central OK As the Rest of the State Still Under Threat of Flash Drought

Thu, 13 Jul 2017 12:42:36 CDT

Dry Conditions Tick Up in Central OK As the Rest of the State Still Under Threat of Flash Drought Oklahoma Climatologist Gary McManus released his latest Drought Monitor report Thursday. According to him, while there was mild improvement over the past week in parts of SE, SC and NC Oklahoma, deterioration was seen throughout Canadian, Blaine and Kingfisher counties, as well as the central Panhandle.


Areas that have received rain as of late, were also areas that needed it the least, compared to other counties currently drying out. Those improved areas though still run the risk of slipping back into flash drought conditions if more moisture does not show up before summerís full fury arrives, with rain deficits now more than 30 days out. Central Oklahomaís deficits continue to worsen, meanwhile.


Should no rain appear soon, moderate drought conditions could be raised to severe very quickly. McManus reluctantly reports that chances for heavy rains throughout the summer months are slim, though he says there are slight chances for rain for tonight and over the weekend for the far NW portion of the state.
