Abstract: Despite recent rainfall, drought in western Oklahoma has expanded and worsened during early 2022.

Please join us as Gary McManus, the Oklahoma State Climatologist, and Victor Murphy, from the National Weather Service, talk about current drought conditions, the long-range forecast, and the impact recent precipitation might have on drought conditions across the state.
