Rain a relief but storms may be ahead



April wasted no time this year maintaining its rainy reputation.

According to OK Mesonet, the rainfall in Grady County April 1 through April 5 ranged from 1.91 in the southern region to 3.72 in the northern region of the county.

However, severe weather could be on its way according to Grady County Emergency Managment's Facebook update.

The post reads that starting Sunday and early in the week, severe weather could be possible.

"Details are not clear this far out, but the set-up we're seeing could bring several rounds of severe weather," the post reported, citing the National Weather Service in Norman.

A weather watch warning summary from the National Weather Service in Norman said that a series of storm systems approaching the southern plains over the next few days is likely. Sunday through Wednesday, the report said, could see isolated severe storms including hail, damaging winds and a few tornadoes may be possible Monday and Tuesday.
