A hot and dry summer approaches Oklahoma


Things don’t look good for the approaching summer months in terms of rainfall in Oklahoma.

The above map was posted Monday by Gary McManus, State Climatologist with the Oklahoma Mesonet.

He also offered his thoughts about the kind of summer we might expect.

“They ain’t good, but they ain’t gospel, either. However, if they are even close to being accurate, we have a long summer ahead for the western half of Oklahoma,” wrote McManus.

“As we take a look ahead at the May-July outlooks from the Climate Prediction Center, well, I hate to do this to ya. Take solace that these things are sometimes a shot in the dark.”
