Floodgates at Keystone Dam, located just west of Tulsa, have opened, releasing amounts of water seldom seen before. The dam holds back water from Arkansas and Cimarron Rivers.   Numerous photos here of flooding along the Arkansas River in the Tulsa area here.  A riverside casino has closed:    https://www.tulsaworld.com/news/state-and-regional/gallery-aerial-views-of-flooding-along-the-arkansas-river-and/collection_52f1ad79-a25f-5158-b2a6-206460862c40.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=user-share&fbclid=IwAR2eFVkA-f08-T6Lpjor8FgRBcnKCU6_YRB0s8tB_xFzbFhNW965xHRXPuE#1 

There is a tornado watch here until 10pm.  Storms have formed with none headed this way, so far, fortunately.

Had a family reunion at Keystone a couple of years ago so familiar with the area. Showed the wife the pictures as she is originally from the Tulsa area. Impressive to say the least. Looks as if a lot of rain fell in the area again last night.

82 air, 72 dewpoint, 72 humidity, 87 heat index

On the roof laying metal, start feeling cold and a bit wobbly.


Time to get the ['ELL off the roof.

It'll still be there tomorrow.  Got ground stuff I can do today like mowing which is just riding around for a while.

Rural northwest Stillwater got hard hit again from one with one of the largest rains amounts in the area last night with around 1.5".  It's had over 16" of rain, so far, for May, compared to 10.73" for my location.

They say you'll know 'obscene' when you see it.  I'd say 75 degrees at 3AM in May fits the description.  I don't care for it in July or August, but it's just nuts in May.

Luckily it didn't look like the dam was compromised.
That's a whole lot of fertilizer going where it shouldn't be. :-(
Really no excuse for this happening. With the strong current extra mooring should have been applied to prevent this.

In Stillwater we can't get a stretch of sunny weather long enough for a buildup to temps in the 90s for the first time this spring.

Sat. night in El Reno,  a suburb in the western part of the OKC metro, a EF3 tornado hit a mobile home park and a hotel.  2 people were killed with over two dozen hurt.

https://www.news9.com/story/40535491/el-reno-is-a-resilient-community-mayor-gives-update-after-deadly-tornado

In Stillwater, the first night with over an inch of rain didn't produce more street flooding after it receded but the 2nd night in a row with over another inch did, sending Stillwater Creek out of its banks again.  So 6 or so stretches of streets are closed in the same areas.

Stillwater Emergency Operations Director went on a tour for over an hour of the renewed flooding Sunday morning.  An interesting part he encounters paper boy and storm chaser at 36:00.

Statement from the Stillwater Emergency Management Agency:

Lots and lots to talk about.

First the roads. We continue to open roads as we can and keep the map updated: Stillwater.org/road-closing.

Second, the rainfall. We have received over 19+” of rainfall in the month of May. This puts us between a 100 year & a 200 year flooding event. (Graphic attached)

The river crested earlier than expected and this will improve our situation, but it will still take quite a while to recover.

Upcoming weather: we are on the edge of “marginal risk” tonight (5/27), but not in it. We could see some rain from storms that are no longer severe move through, but little to no additional accumulations tonight.

Tomorrow’s weather (5/28) is a different story. We are in an “enhanced risk” tomorrow for tornados, 60-80mph winds, and baseball size hail. And of course additional rain/flooding issues.

We will be monitoring remotely today and working with city staff to stay up to date on issues, but we have got to take some time off to recover. As always, we will update as needed. ~SEMA

Not just the hail, that's a nice bowing segment in front of the core, nasty straight line winds.

Uh, oh, Stillwater to get the most rain again in Oklahoma by next Friday.   It's not so funny the 2nd time around.

"May 2019 Climate Review: The main headline for the month was the excessively wet conditions observed over a large majority of the region. Widespread rainfall amounts of 5 to 9 inches were observed across southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, southwest Indiana, and much of western Kentucky, with some locations picking up 10 to 12 inches. With 11.09” falling in Paducah, it became the wettest May on record for the city. Cape Girardeau checked in as the 5th wettest May there. There was a very sharp cutoff to the heavy rainfall amounts across western Kentucky though, with drier than normal conditions observed in much of Calloway, Trigg, Christian, and Todd Counties. Some of this area only received a little over 2 inches of rain for the month.

Temperatures were above normal by around 2 to 3 degrees. Low temperatures were particularly warmer than normal and this was largely due to increased cloud cover and wetter conditions across the region helping to keep overnight lows up.

While we did have some severe thunderstorms during the month, overall it was yet another month with below normal severe thunderstorm coverage across the region. The two most notable severe weather events occurred on May 21 and May 29."

Anybody else seeing that?  Lots of rain, some storms, but not as many as usual.

(I'm quite OK with a lack of severe weather.)

Oklahoma definitely had more tornadoes than normal for May, but at least for the most part they did a good job of staying out of small towns and big cities.
