Temp reached 32° at 4:40 and 5:20 AM. As the winds picked up to 5 mph from the East at 5:50 AM the
Windchill Factor was 28°, again meaning how cool it feels on your skin( face, hands, etc...) when there is wind. By 8 AM WindChill reached 32° to then continue above freezing as it is now 34° with the measured temp of 38° at 8:15 AM.

So, Glaciera did not return from being with her sisters for such a brief subfreeze. She t o t a l l y understands the "complex and w e t" area forecast discussion by the National Weather Service Shreveport, LA at 450 AM CST today on Tuesday Jan 24 2012.

Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will continue to push across portions of extreme southeast Oklahoma...East Texas...north Louisiana...and south Arkansas. Movement is to the north near 40 mph. Periods of brief heavy rainfall and dangerous lightning may be possible in stronger storms.

•Interactive Link Shreveport Radar with updates at 6 min intervals & shows the storms(if any) moving north over us.

A little later today for this update. 2.3 inches of rain here, locally, fell from 7 PM last night until just now. Also this AM, distant thunderstorms with 2 or 3 flashes of lightning. What kept my attention was this:
8:06 AM CST Flood Warning for the Glover River at Glover Oklahoma. From this afternoon to Thursday evening or until the warning is cancelled.

I began doing research, again, on this 32 mile long stream in McCurtain County, 11 miles NorthWest of the Airport. It joins the Little River(South) and then meanders South East until one mile North of Idabel it goes East, not far from where I hide out near Shults, and then crosses the state line into Arkansas. This is the impact locally- a flooding river spilling over its banks, perhaps. Last summer I featured the Glover for its low water levels. Ironic, isn't it? Anyway, the water level is expected to rise 8 feet before nightfall, as seen on the USGS graph below.



You will see the exact flood area on the map links, indicated by the NWS "at 19.0 feet minor to moderate flooding will take place on the Glover River West of Glover Oklahoma and especially at its confluence with the Little River west of Golden Oklahoma".

See map Sorry, the map would not embed in this blog

Final Entry tonight at 8PM a light drizzle outside, nothing on the radar and may not add much to the rainfall total of ~3 inches in the past 26 hours.

• water vapor loop reveals the central Texas closed low beginning to shift east this morning
areas along the Red River of extreme NE Texas/southeast OK/SW Arkansas should see the better chances for
measureable rainfall closer to the 850mb low as it lifts NE.

Low-cloud cloudy all morning, seemed like fog, temp went up 1° in 7 hours, so tell me where that closed low is. Eastern U.S. Water Vapor Image

Quoting YelloworangeRose:
Yeah that is right and we been preparing in case another flood comes (check drainage etc) We had heavy rain downpour last night good thing it stopped if it had not stopped sooner we would have another flood. yay! I am glad the flood there did not cause any damage. I bought boots for everyone here so we do not have to step into the flood waters again.i have learned to prepare. nice color combination yellow & orange.



I'll check your weather more often. You had a major radar upgrade, so it might display on this site here.

do you like orange on yellow?

We did have a flashflood but very brief. btt(by the time) I went outside wearing boots to look around the rain had stopped and puddles of standing water, small ponds( the weather people actually call it "ponding" ) here and there while I carefully walked around them to avoid getting wet. You had the flood where you live YelloworangeRose, and here wasn't that bad at all. The part about the river flooding happened, but it is a small stream and was 2 kilometers north or more. I styled this in yellow and orange for you !

Hello shoreacres. Thanks for stopping by. barefoot and you are the seldom few who leave comments. I could not know if anyone else looks here. The tiny link on the main page (zipcode 74745) way at the bottom in the Blue Community Section is the only way anyone would even know there was a local blog!
It was just updated now and we have a Flash Flood Watch. 2.5 inches since last night and rising.

I've been watching the weather and thought I'd pop in and say hi, since barefoot's not with us any more to keep you company as another "Oklahoman". It looks like you'll be having some rain and maybe good storms before we do down here on the coast. We haven't even much drizzle yet - it's all stayed north and west of Houston, I think.

I know you'll keep an eye on things - I hope you get your rain without any severe weather.
