Tishomingo mesonet site measured 3.45 inches since midnight. The
remainder of our region had widespread light rain, with just a

plains had pushed into far northwest Oklahoma, with temperatures
continuing to fall behind the front. The winds had shifted out of

At 913 am, the skies had become partly sunny across central
Oklahoma, while the skies remained overcast across the rest of our
