Earlier this month Green Country experienced drought-like conditions and now we are receiving an abundant amount of rain. In fact some counties are experiencing flood warnings and flash flood watches and warnings!
In the past 5 days Tulsa has received 5.30" of rainfall! Some areas to the east of Tulsa have experienced 8" to 12" of rainfall in the past five days! The recent rainfall has increased our 2011 rainfall total to 9.44' for the year so far. We are still about an inch below average for this time of year for yearly rainfall, but we have received over the average monthly April rainfall amount of 3.95".
Although we desperately needed the rain... it's about time to see some sunshine again!
