First Signs of Dryness this Spring Forming in Southwestern Oklahoma, Still Drought Free ThoughThu, 28 Mar 2019 11:32:32 CDT
Oklahoma remains drought free here at the end of March, although a small patch of area in the southwestern corner of the state has been designated as “abnormally dry” in this week’s Drought Monitor.
At this time, the small patch in question is the only dryness that has crept onto the map in recent weeks, totaling a mere 2 percent of the state’s landmass.
A storm system is expected to arrive before the weekend, but is likely to miss the dry area altogether. Instead, predictions call for resulting moisture to impact only the northern and southeast parts of Oklahoma.
