Rainfall Puts Dent in Drought- and Brings Flooding to Oklahoma Panhandle- VideoMon, 18 Apr 2016 05:18:19 CDT
Oklahoma had a weekend of almost non stop precipitation. The abundant rainfall has gone a long way to washing away the abnormally dry to moderate drought (and even pockets of severe drought) in Oklahoma. Rainfall totals in excess of four inches were seen in the southeast, southwest and even extreme northwest parts of the state. The Mesonet 3 Day Rainfall Map is seen above. As of five am, only eight Mesonet stations across Oklahoma have had less than an inch of rain since last Friday morning.
In the Panhandle, the Mesonet Station in Boise City recorded 4.56 inches of rain, while estimated rainfall went above six inches in parts of Cimarron and Texas Counties. On Twitter, @jerodmcdaniel shared a video of flooding on the TeePee Creek north of Texhoma.
