WEATHER UPDATE:  Light to heavy rainfall has fallen in extreme eastern portions of the District last night and this morning. Amounts have generally been between 0.5 to 1 inches but there were several 3 to 5 inch cells in the Grand River watershed. The heaviest cells were very localized and impacted small areas. Ongoing showers and thunderstorms are weakening and drifting southwest into central portions of the District. Meanwhile, the remnants of Hurricane Odile are drifting toward extreme southwest portions of the district. There is much uncertainty in the overall track of this system with the models split in timing and location. We do expect heavy rains wherever it goes. Rain is expected to linger into Sunday. Antecedent conditions are dry so the system should be mostly beneficial.  The 7-day Quantitative Precipitation Forecast (QPF) has been changing quite a bit with Odile.  Currently, it shows over 6 inches in Northwest Texas, dropping off to about 2 inches in central portions of the Tulsa District. Eastern portions show 0.5 to 1 inch.  Again, the track is uncertain, but expect at least some rain, especially Saturday.  

The last Pacific Hurricane to bring major rains to the Southern Plains was Hurricane Paine in 1986.  Antecedent conditions are much drier for the remnants of Hurricane Odile, which are a hope for some drought relief. 

DROUGHT UPDATE:  As of 16 September, approximately 31 percent of the lower 48 states remained in some level of drought.  Our District, which includes the Red River and Arkansas River watersheds, varied from normal conditions in some eastern areas to the exceptional drought level in western portions.
