Weekend storms to bring some drought relief?


A large segment of Oklahoma remained under an extensive drought as of late last week, until more rains fell over the weekend.

Rainfall was reported in the northwest on Saturday then heavy rains moved into central Oklahoma on Sunday, with more than 2 inches recorded in the Oklahoma City area.

Storms were still reported Monday morning in western Oklahoma, perhaps bringing more relief from the dry conditions.

However, the relief might be too late for some of the fall crops that already suffered extensive damage from the lack of rainfall.
