Drought Creeps Back into Oklahoma, Jumping Up to 27% From 8% Compared to Just One Month Ago

Thu, 13 Dec 2018 15:58:09 CST

Drought Creeps Back into Oklahoma, Jumping Up to 27% From 8% Compared to Just One Month Ago According to the latest report from State Climatologist Gary McManus, over the past 60+ days, Oklahoma has started to dry out. The areas affected most at this point include the far southeastern part of the state and especially the northeastern corner of Oklahoma. Rain deficits across the northeast go back well over a year, which has led to an expansion of Abnormally Dry (D0) and Moderate Drought (D1) across the northeastern quarter of the state on the new U.S. Drought Monitor.


McManus says this drought area is starting to bleed over into northwestern Oklahoma. In the latest Drought Monitor, the area in D0-D1 has increased from 8% of the state a month ago to 27%.
