If you don't like the weather in Oklahoma, just wait a minute and it will change.
That was very true this past week, with Monday's warm and mild weather that felt like spring lending to a wildfire danger. But temperatures dropped and a sleet and freezing rain event Wednesday culminated into a two-day weather event that closed schools, but the pattern turned to a soggy soup of rainfall on Friday. Some areas had water ponding on the roadways, causing brief and minor bouts of flash flooding.
As of Friday evening, Oklahoma's Mesonet showed the Shawnee area had received 1.88 inches of rainfall in a 24-hour period, while Seminole had 2.3 inches and Chandler had 1.65.
The Mesonet's seven-day totals for this area that included the ice and sleet event was listed Tuesday evening at a total of 4.04 inches.
