It seems like we've had quite a bit of rain over the last few days.
Meteorologist Brad McGavock, with the National Weather Service office in Tulsa, says the mist and clouds have everyone tricked.
He says, “It seems a lot wetter just because it’s been damp and foggy and kind of drizzly. It seems like we gotten a lot more. But, the actual rainfall amounts haven’t been that high.
The numbers may surprise area residents who were hopeful that help for the drought had finally arrived.
McGavock tells KRMG, "It's been real spotty, but as far as a widespread average, it's pretty much been a quarter to a half inch, maybe a little bit more."
McGavock says Tulsa only got .58 inches the last two days.
On Saturday, only .04 of an inch of rain fell.
That brings the monthly total to 0.69 inches, 1.43 inches below the normal amount for September.
The National Weather Service reports the Tulsa area at 6.66 inches below normal for the year.
Some Oklahoma towns are in a little better shape after the weekend.
Kansas, Oklahoma got close to three inches of rainfall.
News On 6 Meteorologist Dick Faurot says we do still have a slight chance for rain Monday morning.
He says, “There will be a chance of showers/storms with the cold front, but right now it does not appear to be a big rainmaker for us. So, I am keeping the chances at about 20%.”
Faurot says we’ll warm back up to the lower 80’s Monday.
“That will be followed by another warm up as our winds return to southerly by Wednesday into Thursday with another front waiting in the wings for later in the week.”
Saturday’s mean temperature was 68 degrees. That’s five degrees below normal.
Faurot says we’ll have a chance for cooler weather for at least two weeks after the cold front moves in Wednesday.
