Rainfall Totals Good in Eastern Oklahoma- Fire Danger Likely in Western Oklahoma- Latest Maps

Mon, 17 Mar 2014 05:45:45 CDT

Rainfall Totals Good in Eastern Oklahoma- Fire Danger Likely in Western Oklahoma- Latest Maps Rainfall totals were good over this past weekend if you live in the southeastern half of the state- very inadequate if you live in the northwestern half of the state- and much of the state that is in drought according to the National Drought Monitor is in that northwestern half of the state.

The map above shows the rainfall we received over this past weekend- Ada and McAlester were the weekend winners for rainfall with both over three inches of the wet stuff.

Meanwhile, the worry on Monday is about fire danger- and the greatest fire danger is in the counties that received little rainfall this past weekend and has little or no topsoil moisture. The graphic below from Matt Mahler of News9 in Okahoma City shows the highest fire danger zones in red- and there is a lot of red on that map!

Alan Crone with the News on 6 says the next chances of rain into Oklahoma are at the end of this week- but he's not very encouraging in what he sees for coverage or amounts- click here for his Monday morning weather blog.
