Latest Oklahoma Drought Monitor Shows Slight Expansion of Drought in Southwest Oklahoma and the Panhandle

Thu, 07 Nov 2019 20:06:36 CST

Latest Oklahoma Drought Monitor Shows Slight Expansion of Drought in Southwest Oklahoma and the Panhandle Oklahoma Drought conditions remain in place in southwestern Oklahoma and the far western Oklahoma Panhandle. The latest Oklahoma Drought Monitor numbers show slightly more moderate and severe drought than a week ago- 9.4% versus 7.6%- the amount of severe drought(D2) remains less than one percentage point- while the total number of both abnormally dry and drought levels actually declined by a faction- 23.89% this week versus 24.78% a week ago.

Oklahoma is currently about four percentage points less abnormally dry and droughty versus the start of the water year- which is October first. We are drier than a year ago- as just the abnormal dry/drought number at this point in November 2018 was just 7.78%.

The bigger worry on the minds of many that are watching the weather conditions is the frigid conditions that are headed toward Oklahoma and well south of us as well- click or tap here to review what State Climatologist Gary McManus is rporting in the latest Mesonet ticker.
