Texoma Rainfall Totals & Pictures: Monday, August 13, 2018

Here's a look at rainfall totals from around Texoma and some of the pictures Texomans' took to show the aftermath of the rain.

Of course the rain was welcome to most of Texoma as we are once again in the familiar grip of a drought.

All rainfall totals have been rounded to the nearest inch to indicate the pattern of rainfall around the area.

Let's get started.

Here's a look at all the rainfall totals around Texoma and as always you can click on the map or photo to make it larger:


Let's take a closer look at the numbers sent in today:


Here are some totals from around the Burkburnett area, including across the river:

Now let's take a look at some of the photos sent in from folks around the Texoma area.  We begin with Nancy Williams photo of her plant.  She says it always blooms the day before rain.  And, Nancy's plant accurately predicted today's rain:

Thanks to everyone that submitted their photos of the rainfall and the reports of totals.

It's safe to assume most folks in the Wichita and northern Clay County area received some rain.  The totals range from one inch up to six inches.

Rainfall totals on the maps are arranged in three color codes.  Blue is 0-2", green is 3-4" and orange is 5+".

The next time we receive rain . . . or . . . dare I say ice or snow.  Be sure to send in pictures and reports and we can share with everyone.

Have a great night.
