Panhandle drought growing

If there isn’t moisture in this latest and hoped-for last blast of winter weather in the Oklahoma Panhandle, the drought is likely to grow.

The Drought Monitor says wile more than 95% of Oklahoma is drought-free, it’s clear the Panhandle is not.

Gary McManus, Climatologist with the Oklahoma Mesonet and the Oklahoma Climatological Society says the far western Panhandle has seen severe drought grow, covering nearly all of Cimarron County with moderate drought moving into Texas County.
