Dry prairie grass in Oklahoma

Despite recent rainfall, drought in western Oklahoma has expanded and worsened during early 2022. As of April 19, 2022, the U.S. Drought Monitor showed over one-third (36%) of the state in extreme (D3) drought and nearly a tenth (9.4%) in exceptional (D4) drought. During this webinar, Gary McManus, the Oklahoma State Climatologist, and Victor Murphy, from the National Weather Service, spoke about current drought conditions, the long-range forecast, and the impact recent precipitation might have on drought conditions across the state.
