Friday is the last full day of summer, but exceptional drought conditions continue and so does the danger of wildfires across Oklahoma.
The latest U.S. Drought Monitor report shows 42% of the state is considered to be in exceptional drought.
53% is listed as extreme drought.
The monitor's report predicts drought conditions to remain through mid-December.
The Oklahoma Forestry Service says recent rains have turned some plants and grasses green, but the foliage remains very dry and susceptible to fire.
