By Gary McManus, Oklahoma Climatological Survey:
The statewide average since August 18 remains 0.07 inches, 2.44 inches below normal (or about 3% of normal). That’s the driest such period since 1921 statewide, and all areas of the state have suffered their first or second-driest August 18- September 10 since 1921.
Oklahoma City’s total for the year thus far of 45.18 inches has been passed by 2007, which had 49.21 inches for the same period. That’s really not much to complain about, however, especially if you’re living in Altus (11.5 inches) or in the western Panhandle (9.4 inches-10.5 inches).
