I hope all those Dads out there have a chance to enjoy their Father’s Day.


Storms last night moved over Oklahoma. We have morning clouds from the activity last night. The small storm chances this morning are highest along the Red River. It’ll be another warm and humid start to the day:

Winds will pick up late morning and stay gusty all afternoon. As the sun breaks out we’ll get into the low 90’s again:

Not much rain in the forecast over the next several days. We didn’t get any yesterday; we are half-way through June and we are running about an inch short in rainfall. It’s been a very dry year so far:


Each of the first five months of this year have suffered below-normal rainfall:

Dry Start to Year

Will June suffer the same fate? When we look back in the record books we can only find six years that started with all SIX months of with below-normal rain. The last time it happened was in 1996.  Those six years have averaged an annual rainfall fo 26.32″ of rain (the 30-year average is 36.14″). Notice the average deficit of those years is about where the deficit is right now for this year:

Even though we still have 200 days to go to finish the year we are half-way through the rain-year:

Will be break the streak of dry weather this month? Well… look at the last four years. June rainfall has been sparse of late:

Here is the seven day forecast. We are hoping that another storm system over the central plains will allow some rain to return to north Texas:
