Storm Report 05/20/2011 0551 PM
1 miles NW of Idabel, McCurtain County.
Funnel cloud, reported by public.
Very close. Too close. The wundermap shows dozens of severe thunderstorms, all red from tremendous cloud height making them more intense, heading our way again! So I may log this blog offline soon.
Next Day Update After May 20th storms
It rained 2.14 inches from 6-9 PM at the data site location 5 miles SW of Idabel. Temp fell from 82 - 66 degrees in 30 minutes 6- 6:30 PM.
My Actual Observation is much less rainfall due to the normal water ponding and flooding that occurs during and after every hard rain thunderstorm. There was no flooding or water ponding near me. Rough estimate would be 1 inch(if that) in the 3 hours. The data discrepancy may be simply that these thunderstorms were moving toward the NE, general direction East. I watched them on the Wundermap for a few hours before I unplugged the blog access. So, as the hard rain began to fall, areas South and West(source of thunderstorm direction) would receive more rain volume because more of the time it rained was in a SW - NE direction from all storms. Fewer storms passed over Idabel and east of it.

Yesterday in the late afternoon Wednesday, May 11th, we experienced a 15° temperature drop in less than 20 minutes. Then it begain to rain. Shreveport was a little slow to issue the severe thunderstorm warning although I saw the intense storms moving this way NE across the TX-OK border. It didn't rain hard, or long — 0.5 inches fell between 5:30 and 11 PM.

As the ground dries from the Sun shining once again for the past 2 days the humidity will lessen. This drying allows for a comfortable, windows open, fresh air experience. Nights are close to a 50° low and humidity is almost always much higher just before dawn, even with a clear sky. So, the land is slowly drying yet still soft underfoot.
A rapid warmup is happening since May 6th.
High Low Temps
May 6 - 80 49
May 7 - 84 58
May 8 - 83 64
With it being 86° now(1:40PM) on Monday the 91 forecast high and 68 overnight low is reasonable and may even be underestimated too.

FLASH FLOOD WATCH until Midnight Monday May 2nd.
• locally heavy rainfall of two to four inches with a potential
for higher amounts up to 6 inches will be possible.
• The ground remains saturated across southeast Oklahoma... and
much of northeast Texas and southwest and south central Arkansas
along and either side of the Interstate 30 corridor. Recent
heavy rains from showers and thunderstorms that continued to
develop and spread over the region has kept the ground near
saturation. Any additional heavy rainfall will produce flash
flooding. This will affect roads... bridges... and low water
crossings... and will cause creeks... streams... and rivers to
rise rapidly and overflow their banks.
2.2 inches of rain in the past 24 hours since 8:45AM Sunday and it's still raining.
0.7 inches more rain by 8:30 PM May 2 and then it ended, bringing a total of 2.9 inches since Sunday.
