ha, ha, It's been raining cats and dogs in Stillwater as shown on my Davis station.  I'm on the back side of the system now.  We'll see if more develops out west later this evening.  I think it if does, it won't be nearly as heavy.

As pictured, soccer bleachers from Oklahoma City University got blown into a home by straight line winds Saturday morning.   In midtown OKC, from  23rd - 36th Sts., it's said to  look like a war zone. Big trees were uprooted and fences blown down. Many people there without electricity.

Oklahoma isn't the only state getting huge amounts of rain.  Large areas in Arkansas and Missouri have had 4 to 10"+.

And then incredible amounts of snow from SD to the TX panhandle.  It's unusual for time of year, but sure preferable to a major tornado outbreak.  But northeast Texas isn't being spared from killer tornadoes tonight.

It rained enough, as much as 5", to send Boomer Lake in Stillwater over the spillway as pictured.  No serious flooding in Stillwater, but a statement has been issued by Stillwater Emergency Management as of this morning:

We have checked all of the streams, creeks and area lakes this morning. We found that they are all well inside of their banks.

Lake Carl Blackwell continues to flow over the principle spillway at approximately 12-14", but Stillwater creek is handling that water just fine. The ponds located at 6th & Sangre are now two ponds again and the Koby Plaza water reservoir is down significantly. Boomer lake is still flowing over the spillway at approximately 4-6", and Boomer creek is processing that water very well also.

The roads that were shut down have been opened, with the exception of Western Rd, between McElroy and Hall of Fame. So, please avoid that area for the next 24 hours.

Our 72 hour rainfall totals were really impressive for our area.   It is a good thing that the area lakes were low or this event could have been a lot worse.

There are some downed trees and large branches down that the Operations department will have to deal with on Monday, so if you live around one of those locations be sure to exercise extreme caution.

For those of you that live along the Cimarron river area, the river is set to crest this morning at 20.0' But will recede quickly this evening. This will cause some flooding in the normal areas that flood, but should not impact too large of an area. This is from the NRCS report and the NWS Hydrology department in Norman.

We want to thank you for exercising good judgement this weekend. We only had 3 water rescues that took place, and we believe that is due to being at the right place at the wrong time.

Party sunny and 11C (52F) now (1:30 PM). It has been a rather cool start for May here, the highs hadn't climbed above 16C (60F) yet.
Best Regards

Wait til this cold core moves through, we'll easily be in the 40's Wed. morning, and maybe white stuff on top of the sky islands too. Very unusual this time of year. :eek:

Severe thunderstorm watch issued in Southern Plains:



NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
1255 PM CDT Thu May 11 2017

The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

* Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of
Northwest Arkansas
Southern Kansas
Southwest Missouri
North-central and eastern Oklahoma

* Effective this Thursday afternoon and evening from 1255 PM
until 900 PM CDT.

* Primary threats include...
Scattered large hail likely with isolated very large hail events
to 3 inches in diameter possible
Isolated damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible
A tornado or two possible

SUMMARY...Severe thunderstorms are expected to develop and increase
this afternoon, initially across north-central and northeast OK
along and north-northeast of a surface low and residual outflow
boundary. These storms will spread into additional parts of eastern
OK, southern KS, southwest MO, and western AR through late afternoon
and early evening. Large hail should be the most common threat, but
locally damaging winds will also be possible along with some tornado
risk, mainly near the residual outflow boundary across parts of
north-central to northeast/east-central OK.

The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 60
statute miles north and south of a line from 15 miles west of Enid
OK to 30 miles east northeast of Fayetteville AR. For a complete
depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update
(WOUS64 KWNS WOU8).

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

REMEMBER...A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are
favorable for severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area.
Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening
weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible
warnings. Severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce
tornadoes.

AVIATION...A few severe thunderstorms with hail surface and aloft to
3 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind gusts to 60 knots. A
few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 500. Mean storm motion vector
25025.

Fortunately, as things developed this afternoon, Stillwater stayed between two severe storms which warranted tornado warnings.  So all it did was rain.  But another storm may be on its way.   Apparently, no tornado touchdowns came out of the warnings.  But there sure was some high wind and hail. Not here, though.

I'm surprised no one has posted yet about the pretty nasty severe threat going on in the south.  Threat levels appear high near me (they're talking softball sized hail and bigger including some tornadoes).  Huge humid airmass (my dewpoint today has been hovering in the upper 70s...yes, I said upper 70s).
