The Drought (in some form) is Back

U.S. Drought Monitor

86 percent of Oklahoma is in some sort of drought condition. That word  is from the U.S. Drought Monitor. The latest map shows the Tulsa area in abnormally dry conditions.

The lack of substantial rainfall, coupled with a warmer than normal November has left the ground without a lot of moisture. Gusty winds and dry vegetation could lead to a wild fire threat later this week.

In December of last year, Oklahoma experienced wide spread flooding.
