Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Norman OK
921 AM CDT TUE JUL 26 2016

Widespread showers and strong thunderstorms continued after
midnight across much of central and southwest Oklahoma, all
occurring south of a stalled warm front. Heavy rain and very
intense lightning were associated with these storms, especially
across central Oklahoma, with storm total rainfall generally
between 2 to 4 inches mainly across and near the Oklahoma City
metro, with 4.5 inches measured at the Minco mesonet site. Outside
of the storms, the skies ranged from partly to mostly cloudy
across northwest and southeast Oklahoma and western north Texas.
Temperatures across our region remained seasonably normal for late
July mornings, with lows in the lower to mid 70s. The winds stayed
generally light and variable, with some short lived strong gusts
due to the storms. By sunrise, much of the storms had dissipated,
although rain showers had redeveloped again a few hours later
across portions of central Oklahoma.

At 920 am, rain was falling across Grady and Canadian counties,
extending from Concho to Rush Springs. The skies were mostly sunny
across northwest and southeast Oklahoma, to partly sunny across
western north Texas, to overcast across central and southwest
Oklahoma. The temperatures had so far warmed into the mid to upper
70s. A nearly stalled warm front remained stretched across
northern Oklahoma, with northeast winds at 5 to 10 mph ahead of
the front, and light and variable winds persisting behind the warm
front.
