1- RAIN is liquid precipitation, water falling from the sky. Just wanted to remind everyone of this since we may see some over the next few days. It appears our chances are around 40% today and 50 % tonight. We’ll definitely see what happens.

2- Temps this week will range from the mid to upper 70s into the low 80s. Wind gusts will be fairly strong this week and could exceed 35 mph on Tuesday as another front pushes into the region. We’ll see what happens.

3- Overall, we’ll be ok and hopefully we’ll see that rain later today into the overnight hours. Here is your forecast from the NWS/NORMAN;

Today- Partly sunny. A chance of sprinkles this morning, then a chance of showers with a slight chance of thunderstorms this afternoon. Highs around 80. South winds 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph. Chance of rain 40 percent.

Tonight- Mostly cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Lows around 60. South winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 50 percent.

ADVISORY: we do have a fire starter, arsonist, running around out there. Keep your eyes open for ANY suspicious activity and report it to 911 or the Sheriff’s office. Whoever this is kept rural fire crews busy a good part of the day on Sunday. To my knowledge, no structures were lost but it was close at one of the many fires yesterday. Again, Just stay alert out there.
