The Mess That Started it All…

La Nina. One of the worst things you can ever hear a meteorologist in Oklahoma say. Why? Because it’s the cause for the very dry conditions that we have seen recently. But, there are now signs that La Nina is weakening and could be outta here by the summer time.

Sea Surface Temperatures have been returning back to normal conditions across the “LA NINA ZONES” of The Pacific. But, while we will see the conditions weaken, or go from below normal to normal, they will still exist for the spring season which means that we will still see the trend of above normal temperatures persist.

The long range outlook does show an improvement in our potential to see decent rainfall, but keep in mind, it’s a slow improvement. The outlook doesn’t bring in above normal rainfall until late this summer.

Right now, the outlook brings in an increased chance for above normal rainfall for Northern Oklahoma and equal chance for either above normal rainfall or below normal rainfall for those south of I-40, but not until August.  So, the light is at the end of the tunnel, it’s just a waiting game…and if you’re like me.. I hate to wait.
