Drought Conditions Hold Steady in Oklahoma as Above Normal Temps Keep Fall Weather at Bay

Thu, 19 Sep 2019 11:48:52 CDT

Drought Conditions Hold Steady in Oklahoma as Above Normal Temps Keep Fall Weather at Bay Oklahoma's drought situation continues to remain about steady this week with only slight adjustments across the board on the most recent Oklahoma Drought Monitor Map. All categories were incrementally higher compared to the previous week, with the exception of "Extreme Drought" which decreased modestly from 2.82% last week to 1.97%.

The drought is most intense in the southwestern corner of the state from which the majority of the affected area begins to spread outward. Pockets of drought are also seen confined in the southeast corner of the state as well as limited areas in the Panhandle region.

State Climatologist Gary McManus reports that chances of rain in the state will arrive sometime Thursday and will likely extend through the weekend. Any storms that are able to form will bring with them some cooler weather though no signs of extended fall weather in the forecast yet.
