Drought Not Quite Exists in the State

The latest Drought Monitor shows Oklahoma has yet to return to a drought but 17 percent of the state is listed as “abnormally dry.”

The abnormally dry areas are in north central, north east and east central Oklahoma.

“But the rainfall statistics over the last 60 days probably warrant drought designation justification,” said Gary McManus, State Climatologist with the Oklahoma Mesonet.

He explained that deficits of 4 to 8 inches exist across the northern half of the state as well parts of east central Oklahoma.
