Southeast Oklahoma Continues to Dry Out as State Braces for Hotter Than Normal Temperatures

Thu, 21 Jun 2018 16:40:00 CDT

Southeast Oklahoma Continues to Dry Out as State Braces for Hotter Than Normal Temperatures This week’s Drought Monitor shows quite a bit of change compared to the week before, most notably the increase in drought across the far southeast part of Oklahoma. However, that area receive a some decent rain over the past few days which may improve the area’s condition rating in next week’s report.

Periodic rains throughout the next week will also help to improve conditions across most of the state, but especially in northern Oklahoma. Farther out, though, forecasts call for warmer than normal temperatures from July through September. Rain chances during this period is uncertain, leaving the odds out there that existing drought conditions could potentially worsen between now and then.

Currently, Exceptional drought in Oklahoma has risen 1 point from last week, now at 3 percent; Extreme drought is down nearly 10 points at 14 percent; Severe drought is up 3 points at 38 percent; Moderate drought climbed 9 points to 59 percent this week and Abnormally dry conditions are now covering approximately 82 percent of the state, up 2 points from last week.
