Weekend snowfall could change drought maps in Oklahoma


Weekend snowfall in Oklahoma provided some good cover for the spring crops. It also produced some challenging windchills.

“We had a good swath of 6-8 inches up in NW OK, with Beaver leading the way with 8 inches,” reported Oklahoma Climatologist Gary McManus in his Monday Mesonet newsletter.

“It also brought moisture to parts of the state that were sorely missing the wet stuff and allowed us to reset some nasty looking consecutive days maps.”

As for the nearest prospects of more snow, sleet or rain, McManus says we’ll have to wait a while.
