Latest U.S. Drought Monitor Map Shows Oklahoma Mostly Void of Drought Conditions

Thu, 03 Jun 2021 09:05:11 CDT

Latest U.S. Drought Monitor Map Shows Oklahoma Mostly Void of Drought Conditions Precipitation this past week was most active in the southern Plains and the Mid-Atlantic into the Northeast, helping ease and improve drought in those regions, according to the latest U.S. Drought Monitor.

Temperatures were well below normal over most of the country with departures of 9-12 degrees below normal in the Dakotas. Even greater differences of 15-20 degrees below normal were noted for parts of the central and southern Plains.

Much of eastern Colorado, southern Nebraska, Kansas and northwest South Dakota received well over 150 percent of normal precipitation during the period.

Following a very wet week, 84.37 percent of the state is free of any drought designation. Last week that number was 64.15 and one year ago it was 70.07.
