Oklahoma Almost Completely Drought Free with Only 2% of the State Remaining Under Dry Conditions

Thu, 11 Oct 2018 12:20:28 CDT

Oklahoma Almost Completely Drought Free with Only 2% of the State Remaining Under Dry Conditions According to State Climatologist Gary McManus, Oklahoma has not been drought free since August 29, 2017, more than 13 months ago. In reality, he says, Oklahoma has barely been drought free this whole decade. This past week just missed the drought free mark, despite the massive amount of rainfall across the state, which were apparently not enough to completely rid the northwest panhandle of its dryness. The northeastern corner of the state also continues to stay stubbornly dry as well.


More moisture in the form of rain and snow is in the forecast though, prompted by Tropical Storm Sergio, which may help to offset some of the remaining drought in Oklahoma.


Currently, just over 2 percent of the state is considered under moderate drought conditions, with less than one percent demarked as “severe.” Aside from that, a little over 11 percent of the state is “abnormally dry.”
