Here's a look at the past 30 day rainfall totals thanks to the fine folks over at the Oklahoma mesonet. As you can see significant moisture has occurred over much of Oklahoma especially in the heart of the drought in western Oklahoma! Plus, severe weather was somewhat limited!!
From the National Weather Service right here in OKC the latest check on Oklahoma lake levels. Look at the number of lakes at 100% capacity in northwestern and northern Oklahoma as well as south central and southeastern Oklahoma! Still hurting in southwestern Oklahoma but all in all much improved! I'd give you the latest lake levels from over in eastern and northeastern Oklahoma but the National Weather Service in Tulsa doesn't have any updated nice and easy maps to grab and post and I'm too lazy to make my own maps. I'm not ignoring Tulsa, it's my favorite city, really! I depend mostly on other sources for graphics since this site is non profit and I don't have any money so it is what it is. I keep this site going cause I love the weather, that's it.
More rain and severe weather on the way folks! You can scroll down and check out my post from yesterday for more detailed weather pattern recognition but here's the latest EURO weather forecast model showing a stormy spring weather pattern coming back next week. One system comes in Tuesday and Wednesday and then another system comes right in on the heels of the first system. The potential is there for more widespread significant rainfall as well as daily chances for severe weather. Again please read my weather blog from yesterday not writing that up again.
I'll leave ya with a throwback Thursday pic. Introducing the Mamaroneck High School Marching Band. I was a drummer once...
