Latest Drought Monitor, Forecasts Set the Stage for Conditions to Intensify Over Next Several Weeks

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 12:12:18 CST

Latest Drought Monitor, Forecasts Set the Stage for Conditions to Intensify Over Next Several Weeks Drought continues to persist in the state this week, particularly in western parts of Oklahoma.


Gary McManus, Oklahoma’s state climatologist, says some areas are now up to 112 days without having received at least a quarter-inch of rain in a single day. Most of the western half of the state, he says though, falls between 88 and 105 days.


Current forecasts are not promising. Eastern Oklahoma appears the most likely part of the state to see any significant moisture, but chances remain slim. The Climate Prediction Center predicts this trend may continue through April, with expectations of increased odds for above normal temperatures and below normal precipitation in western Oklahoma. McManus advises Oklahomans to prepare for drought conditions to intensify over the next few weeks and months.
