Tulsa Rainfall Deficit Is Significant

June started off very wet across the State of Oklahoma and that helped Tulsa keep up with normal rainfall for the month of June.

However, Tulsa still remains 8" of rain below normal for 2014.

Showers and thunderstorms will be possible for the last week of June, so there still stands some potential to decrease this deficit.

Typically, July and August are the driest months of the year and the hottest. Those two factors combined with the drought conditions could cause more fire concerns for Oklahoma.

There is the potential that we could see this pattern reverse and potentially bring us to a wetter pattern across the South Central Plains with the possibility of El Nino affecting the region by the end of the year.
