Rain on its way to Oklahoma


Rain, at last, is coming to Oklahoma, thanks to Hurricane Norma, or what’s left of her.

Oklahoma State Climatologist Gary McManus says the remainder of the storm will eventually sweep into Oklahoma.

“Rainfall amounts over the next 5-7 days could be considerable, at least for SW through central parts of the state. Totals diminish to both sides from there, but somebody is getting some really big rains, it would appear,” wrote McManus in his Mesonet update on Monday.

It might even be enough to cause flash flooding in some parts of the state.

“As per usual, with this type of training from southwest to northeast, somebody will get a ton of rain and their friends in another part of the county might get a lot less, so keep that in mind when you look at those rainfall forecast maps,” remarked McManus.
