Western Oklahoma Sees First Real Chance of Moisture, But Unlikely to Break Drought Conditions

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 12:11:34 CDT

Western Oklahoma Sees First Real Chance of Moisture, But Unlikely to Break Drought Conditions Fires that continue to blaze across northwest Oklahoma are thankfully slowing in their advance as more favorable weather conditions begin to build giving hope that the western half of the state might actually receive some moisture this weekend. However, according to State Climatologist Gary McManus, the slow-moving storm system approaching will likely deliver some “decent” moisture to the west but will unlikely be the drought-busting storm everyone is hoping for.


McManus points out, though, that the impact of whatever rain is received will not be known until the next week’s Drought Monitor is released.


Currently, no significant change has been made to this week’s Drought Monitor ratings since last other than perhaps a one percent increase in the exceptional drought category which now engulfs the entire Panhandle region. Exceptional Drought is now spread across 19 percent of the state, 35 percent in extreme drought, 42 in severe drought, 47 in moderate drought and 58 percent of the state under abnormally dry conditions.
