Oklahoma City is Drought Free?

Could it be? OKC is now drought free? According to the latest drought monitor, Oklahoma City is indeed DROUGHT FREE! The yellow shading on the map stands for ABNORMALLY DRY which is what Oklahoma County and portions of Canadian County are dealing with as well as Logan, Lincoln and parts of Payne County. Cleveland County is still listed as having a weak drought.

According to NOAA, ABNORMALLY DRY conditions (which OKC is seeing) is not considered a drought category and is rather used to show areas that are showing some dryness or now just coming out of a drought.

And the 3 month outlook looks nice for Western Oklahoma.

Green is good. And with the chance for rain next week I see even more improvements in the drought. Time to fill up some lakes now.
