Good job to Sarah and Damon this morning. Not only did they have to deal with strong/severe storms in central Oklahoma, they also had to do it with major computer issues taking place. The hard drive on one of our main weather computers crashed at about 2 am leaving them crippled in terms of graphics. They still managed to provide meaningful information on the storms, as well as road conditions across the metro.
Speaking of road conditions, the morning drive was seriously hampered by the heavy rain in the metro. I know I took many of the back roads when taking my daughter to school to avoid many of the water related traffic jams.
Many locations in central Oklahoma had 1-2 inches of rain in a fairly short period of time between 6 am and 9 am. Here are some of those amounts:
The worst of the rain is over. However, there can still be a few spotty showers later tonight into tomorrow morning, but there will be no heavy rain like we had this morning. Tomorrow will likely start cloudy, but sunshine will return through the day. It will be cool with highs mostly in the 50s.
The weekend will be outstanding. Plenty of sunshine with highs in the mid 60s Saturday, and near 70 on Sunday. Trick-or-treat and football weather looks pleasant.
After tomorrow morning, I see no more rain in the forecast through next Thursday.
