As Drought Persists, Forecast continues to show Low Chances of Rain Throughout the Next Few Weeks

Mon, 26 Sep 2022 11:59:42 CDT

As Drought Persists, Forecast continues to show Low Chances of Rain Throughout the Next Few Weeks Drought continues to be an issue across Oklahoma. According to state Climatologist Gary Mcmanus, those who have seen rain over the past 30 days have continued to see it evaporate. He says the bulk of the state in the 20-24 day range for not having at least a tenth of an inch of rain in a single day is obviously going past 31 days a week and then probably building. As for the quarter-inch map, McManus says you can see that periods in some parts of the state will go past two months. Seasonable Temperatures are still above normal, and its going to stay that was for at least the next week.

It's incredibly dry throughout the state, and McManus says there's not much great news as it will only worsen. We've seen long periods between rainfall events, with the most rain occurring in August. Oklahoma's lakes and farm ponds continue to dwindle.


Fire Season starts later this fall, and McManus says it will probably be here early thanks to the drought-inducing forced dormant and dead vegetation or fuel loads. However, he says We won't have to wait for that first killing frost; the drought is taking care of that. Our average first frost is about a month away, after all.

McManus says we will see some cold fronts move through the state, but it's not likely they will generate any rainfall. He says the closest we can see some rain events happening is at least two weeks out.
