The Oklahoma Climatological Survey says the recent rains since Monday have been a great start to getting a handle on the drought.

The storms Thursday morning alone produced more than three inches of rain in the Tulsa area as well as one to two inches in central Oklahoma.

Associate State Climatologist Gary McManus says it’s been beneficial to the parts of the state which got some rainfall.

“Unfortunately a lot of the areas still went without appreciable rainfall. Much of southern Oklahoma and much of western Oklahoma continues very dry and very dir drought conditions.”

McManus says the state is currently 10 to 15 inches below normal going back to October of last year.

He says more rain is expected into the weekend for northeast and central Oklahoma.
