OK Remains Drought Free as Recent Rainfall Washes Away Lingering Flirtations with Dry ConditionsThu, 18 Apr 2019 11:00:05 CDT
After a brief flirtation with dry conditions in parts of the state, Oklahoma State Climatologist Gary McManus is reporting that rains over the past week have wiped the slate clean of dryness once again. With an expected wet pattern forecast for the weeks ahead into the start of summer, it is hopeful that any possible drought conditions could be kept at bay for perhaps the next three months potentially.
Currently, the Oklahoma Mesonet’s Drought Monitor shows the state is completely devoid of any kind of dry or droughty conditions with zero ratings across the board. This compares to last week when just over 4 percent of the state was considered to be under D0-D4 or “Abnormally Dry” conditions.
