Drought Consumes Over 50 Percent of Oklahoma This Week, According to Latest Mesonet Report

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 11:51:10 CST

Drought Consumes Over 50 Percent of Oklahoma This Week, According to Latest Mesonet Report Oklahoma's State Climatologist Gary McManus reports in this week's Drought Monitor, that drought conditions have now consumed 51 percent of the state, 27 percent of which is under severe drought conditions. Overall, 88 percent of the state is categorized as abnormally dry.


McManus reports that some rain did fall across southeastern Oklahoma forestalling any intensification there, but unfortunately, that is the only significant rain in the state that he has recorded in quite some time. With little to no precipitation forecasted for the near future, McManus expects moisture deficits to continue growing.


With these dry conditions, McManus says so to have come reports of drought-stressed crops (particularly winter wheat), low or empty farm ponds and increased fire danger across the state.
