Rain in the Oklahoma Panhandle!


A shocker in the Oklahoma Panhandle where one inch of rain fell Tuesday night in Boise City.

It not only probably stunned residents of the most western of the counties that make up the Panhandle, but left Oklahoma Mesonet Climatologist Gary McManus shaken as well.

He couldn’t believe it!

“Okay, over the length of this flash drought (that’s now just a drought), since June 11, Boise City has the 9th highest rainfall total of our 120 Mesonet sites. Now Sallisaw leads the way with 10.24 inches (5.92″ which came on July 21), but here’s something even more MORE crazy…Kenton is 6th with 8.82 inches!”

Still, the drought remains in Oklahoma.
