Drought Monitor Map for Oklahoma Wiped Clean This Week - First Time in Nearly Three Years

Thu, 10 Jan 2019 10:32:56 CST

Drought Monitor Map for Oklahoma Wiped Clean This Week - First Time in Nearly Three Years Oklahoma, for the first time since June 14, 2016, is completely free of both drought and abnormally dry conditions. This week’s Drought Monitor Map for the state shows a completely clean slate. This is a stark contrast to what was recorded last winter, when the area affected by drought spiked, which helped to fuel the wildfires that burned across Oklahoma early in the spring.


According to State Climatologist Gary McManus, rainfall since December 1st has beneficial for most areas of the state and prolific for some. However, despite the moisture, parts of southwestern, northwestern and the Panhandle remain in deficit mode and will need to be monitored closely for deterioration.


Chances of more rain are possible over the next two or three days. A system will move through tonight and with moisture returning from the south, those rain chances will begin in earnest later tonight through Saturday morning with an inch or more possible across eastern Oklahoma.
