Latest Drought Monitor Prepares Oklahomans for Intensified Dry Conditions Over the Next 90 Days

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 14:34:08 CDT

Latest Drought Monitor Prepares Oklahomans for Intensified Dry Conditions Over the Next 90 Days Oklahoma’s State Climatologist Gary McManus, offered the latest Drought Monitor report this week. According to him, there is a perfect storm, or lack thereof, brewing for drought intensification in Oklahoma citing dry forecasts with evaporative temperatures in the 100s.


Nearly 90 days ago, notes McManus, the rains more or less dried up for the state. Not surprising for Oklahoma in July.


Ninety days the other way though, looking into the future, McManus says there is a bit of hope for receiving some moisture, but in all likelihood, we’re most certainly looking at more above average temperatures. But when October does arrive, he says, our chances for above normal moisture should rise with the temperature - particularly in Southern Oklahoma.


In the meantime, barring any unforeseen downpours, whatever little rain we do get between now and early fall will be a drop in the bucket compared to what we actually need.
