In Stillwater, the heavy part of the storm is taking its slow time getting here as light rain falls.   Meanwhile,  Oklahoma City's storm as of 7pm was looking more impressive:

The TV weatherman in the picture looks like it's worse than cool.  He is Mike Morgan, infamous for telling people of south Oklahoma City on May 31, 2013 to get in your cars and drive south in response to an unusually strong tornado. It led to traffic congestion. TV weathermen on other channels advised people to take cover indoors.  Fortunately, the tornado lifted before it got to south OKC, but not before surprising 3 veteran storm chasers and killing them.  Two of them got sucked out of the car.

On Wednesday at 6pm in Stillwater,  it kind of looked like that picture of OKC, but storm had considerably diminished when it arrived here giving only .01" of rain.  Fortunately, unlike how pictures of it may look, this long rainy spell has only been about the rain and some wind with no big hail or tornados.  Rain has gone over 10" in several locations in central Oklahoma for the most.  The northeast side of Oklahoma County  got so much rain that Lake Arcadia, located near Route 66, got 9 ft. above normal and had to be closed.  For here, it's rained 5.04", while 10 miles south in Perkins it's been 9.11".  As long as Stillwater Creek can adequately drain into the Cimarron River, I don't expect any flooding in the city of Stillwater.

It looks like late Friday the chance of rain will diminish considerably with Sat. being dry and Sunny.  The 4th of July looks the same way with a 20% chance of rain.  Hopefully, the fireworks at Boomer Lake Park, part of lake pictured below, will go on as scheduled.  HAPPY 4th of JULY everybody!

On Thursday thru 8pm, it only rained .23" at my station, but in much of Oklahoma City it rained between 1 and 2" on saturated ground.  As a result, at one house in north Oklahoma City, someone's backyard has been eroding away from a creek next to it.

For the past two days smoke from wildfires in Ontario has drifted down over parts of the Upper Midwest, giving us hazy sunshine.  The good news is that the smoke is expected to diminish tonight.

Must have drifted south because we got it Monday. Made the setting sun a bright  orange color Monday.

Lake City Iowa was hit, again. One ran through town in 2015.

Photo shows heavy storm over Oklahoma City metro Monday evening.  It rained up to around 2.5" with a flash flood warning issued.  A person on OKC Talk described it as, "In the middle of a pretty wild thunderstorm near Penn Square Mall.  Some of the loudest thunder ever, a torrential downpour and crazy winds straight out of the west, which almost never happens."  And he later added,   "I've received a ton of rain in only about 30 minutes.  What a welcome relief, although the Deep Fork Creek that runs directly behind my house is near the very top of the 15' embankment, where it typically is at a trickle.  The power of all that water is something to behold."

I didn't get under any intense rain cloud here and only had .17".  However, interestingly enough, it did come a heavy rain a mile to the southwest of me in downtown Stillwater, where it suddenly rained a little over an inch, according to one WU station.  It must have been where the claps of thunder were coming from.  It seems the storm formed just to the west southwest of me but moved east very slow and had pretty much rained itself out when it got to me:    https://www.stwnewspress.com/news/downpour-causes-street-flooding-in-stillwater/article_8fe0cc52-ee5d-11eb-9605-df7b27c43c5a.html
