Needin' Some Rain...23 Feb 2009

Needing Some Rain….
23 February 2009

The first half of February brought several shots of rainfall and soil moisture recovered some during that time. In the past 10 days very little precipitation has fallen; it’s no secret things are in the “high fire danger” realm once again.

A cold front and upper trough may bring better rain prospects for Friday and Saturday. Not the best timing, but with winter winding down and spring chomping at the bit, it would be good to have a soaking about now. So I hope we cash in on this possibility.

    Hey Steve....Well maybe with some luck, we will get some thunder Thursday night. The system arriving by Wednesday of next week, however looks much better to me for more organized storms and perhaps heavy rain...I always did like a good debate. Thanks..Darrell

    Naturally, the exact amount of rain that you're short depends on where you live; it ranges from about 40% of normal at Ardmore, to 50% of normal at Durant and Sherman to 70% of normal at Hugo and Ada. SO...saying we're running about half of normal is in the ballark for most spots. Take Care, Steve
