November Rain Helps Drought in Okla. (Dec 01, 2011)

NORMAN, Okla. - Despite one of the most severe droughts on record, Oklahoma enjoyed much-needed rainfall throughout November.

Last month marked the 12th-wettest November since records began in 1895. The National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center’s latest Drought Monitor out today now has only 10 percent of the state in the exceptional drought category. 69 percent of the state was under the worst possible designation at the end of August.

Associate State Climatologist Gary McManus says the eastern half of Oklahoma should see drought conditions improve over the next three months, while the western half is expected to see the drought persist or intensify over that period.

A new NASA Map obtained by StateImpact Texas shows the drought’s effect nationwide.
