Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
3-18-04 Construction of Ardmore's new convention center is building to its big grand opening. Eight months ago the city broke ground on the eight million dollar project along North Rockford Road. Now they're already booking events. The center is pre-booked for 14 events; the first will be a dinner for five hundred people to be held July 25th. That's just days after the July 19th scheduled completion date. Of course funding for the convention center is from taxpayer dollars.
