Drought Update

The latest drought monitor was just issued for the week and it continues to show improving conditions across the region. For the 1st time in a long time, the weakest of the drought (ABNORMALLY DRY) conditions are now appearing in Eastern Oklahoma. Oklahoma City, which last week had EXTREME DROUGHT conditions is now showing a drop in the drought to SEVERE DROUGHT status. Western Oklahoma continues to show the worst of the drought, EXCEPTIONAL DROUGHT. From where we were a few months ago, this drought monitor is looking very nice despite the fact that it still has a lot of red on it.

The short term outlook does look nice, especially for early next week as the models continue to show another storm system moving into The Southern Plains.

The potential for heavy rainfall does exist, but the models have been inconsistent in showing where the heaviest of the rain will set-up. This far out a lot can and will change. But, with November traditionally known as a dry month for us, the fact that we’re getting many shots of rain is awesome. ! Should I wash my car… I mean, for Oklahoma I will. Usually when I do…it rains. Signs of a true meteorologist!
