Drought on the Run Across Southwest Oklahoma - Total Drought Removal Predicted by Next Week

Thu, 04 Oct 2018 11:39:32 CDT

Drought on the Run Across Southwest Oklahoma - Total Drought Removal Predicted by Next Week According to Oklahoma State Climatologist Gary McManus, the amount of drought in the state remains virtually unchanged (9.11% last week, 8.94% this week) in the latest Drought Monitor Map. However, the decrease in the southwest part of the state was replaced by an increase in the northeast- a near even exchange.


McManus states in his Mesonet Ticker report for Thursday, October 04, 2018 that Oklahoma is set up well for total drought removal over the course of the next week. He adds, though, that this expectation comes with the possibility of flooding as well, especially in western Oklahoma.


“I really do think we'll see widespread relief across all the remaining drought areas over the next week or so. The 7-day rain forecast certainly looks favorable for that!” McManus said.
