A look at the rainfall rates

From the National Weather Service, Norman:

11:52 a.m.: “Radar returns southwest of Oklahoma City look high, but this instead of heavy rain, the high reflectivity is due to graupel (small ice). Rainfall rates are up to 0.25″/hour or so, not the 1″/hour that radar might suggest.”


Also from the National Weather Service, Norman: A wind advisory remains in effect until 1 a.m. Thursday for: Harper-Woods-Alfalfa-Grant-Kay-Ellis-Woodward-Major-Garfield- Noble-Roger Mills-Dewey-Custer-Blaine-Kingfisher-Logan-Payne-Beckham-Washita-Caddo-Canadian-Oklahoma-Lincoln-Grady-McClain- Cleveland-Pottawatomie-Seminole-Harmon-Greer-Kiowa-Jackson- Tillman-Comanche-Stephens-Garvin-Cotton-Jefferson counties.

* Winds: South winds 25 to 35 mph with some wind gusts around 40   mph.

* Impacts: Wet roads and the strong winds will increase travel   dangers… especially in high profile vehicles on east west   roads.

Be careful if you have to travel or if you are working or playing outside.
