Summer refusing to Let go with High Temps and Low Rain Chances Expected for OklahomaMon, 19 Sep 2022 08:40:15 CDT
According to State Climatologist, Gary McManus, we are having a hard time letting go of summer around here! We did have a slight "fall" about the third week of August, but thats about it so far. McManus says we we will get a couple of cold fronts through here, first on Thursday and again late in the weekend, but don't expect much of an actual cooldown just yet. The second front over the weekend could stick around for a day or three, but we zoom back up later next week.
Temperatures will climb higher as we head toward the end of the week with highs in the upper 90's, and very few chances of rain over the next couple of weeks. McManus says we "MIGHT" see a little bit of rain with the second front that moves in over the weekend, but it looks mostly dry into the end of September.
McManus says This is classic drought behavior for Oklahoma, where we see longer periods without appreciable rainfall, then a hope-inducing bout with moisture for a few days, some drought improvement, then back to the longer period without rain. These maps are by and large gonna get worse...much worse...before they get better.
