“Here Comes the Rain Again…”

There was a short piece on the Mesonet ticker recently that said Oklahoma hadn’t had a tornado warning in a record number of days…

From Mesonet.org
The last tornado warning we issued was at 8:10pm on Friday, May 31, 2013. It expired at 9:00pm. As of April 8th, this will be day 312 without a tornado warning. The previous longest streak was 293 days: June 1, 1990 to March 20, 1991.

The weather outside is beginning to look threatening, and I have a sense we will be issued something this evening or tonight. As I write this, I hear thunder.

  1. We (Killeen) have had more rain in the past two weeks than in the previous four months combined; I think we’ll still end the month five inches behind for the year though…

    (It’s raining heavily as I type this, which is an odd feeling that reminds me of typing in Oklahoma or Arkansas, where rain was a little more common.)
