Did it rain under the storm?

chickencoupeJuly 19, 2012

30 mph winds upon us now and it's just creeping to us at about 10mph. Is it raining in Tulsa? Mannford? ANYWHERE??? (lol)

Oh please let it rain, let it rain, let it rain. We reached 106 today with 104 only twenty minutes ago. Knocked it down to 99 and decreasing. Yay!

The storm passed north of us here in Stillwater, so we only got sprinkling and a few moments of light rain. We really do need more than that.

At least it's cooling things off.

Sancho; When I go outside and look in your direction I see mean thunderclouds but it's all quiet and spittin' here and there. Must be drying up as it comes down.

We got .11 inches here. Better than nothing and it cooled us off.

It's rained here in Sapulpa/Tulsa quite a bit, still raining lightly now. Started about two hours ago. A nice surprise for sure.

mo, I'm so glad to hear you got legitimate and useful rain. I suppose the only real rain was seen under the eyes of the storm. All the rest just evaporated in the air, I suppose. We never got any rain despite hours of clouds. I could smell it in the air. I suppose that is better than nothing at all though the ground isn't any happier for it.

Sorry it missed your trees Scott.

Glad those who got useful rain received it.

Did the OKC area have a heat burst or something? This morning the Mesonet was showing it about 10 degrees warmer than the rest of the state around 7 a.m? When I looked at it then, most of the state was in mid-70s, but OKC area was in mid-80s.

I'll link the current temp map, but if you're seeing it later in the morning than when I posted it, the temp difference may not exist at that time.

Here is a link that might be useful: Current Temperature Map

I think OKC may not have gotten the temperature drops after the storm like we did last night. That is why they are 10 degrees higher. We are predicted to be 109 this afternoon so we will catch back up.

I thought about that, but many other areas, like mine, that had no rain even close still dropped into the mid 70s. Maybe their concrete kept them so much hotter, but it seems odd.

109 is too hot. I hope y'all are able to stay as cool and comfortable as possible under the circumstances. Your heat index numbers probably will be really extreme.

We're only forecast to go to 106, but yesterday our forecast was 101 and we went to 107. I'm hoping we don't go 6 degrees higher than today's forecast, or we'll be roasting.

No rain in NW OKC where I am. Last night maybe 8pm or so, we got clouds and a big cool wind blew in, and the temps dropped maybe 10-15 degrees, but not anywhere like the 20-25 degree drops I think N OK got. The clouds blew out within an hour or so and no rain. Didn't even smell rain, but for a minute there it looked promising.
