Hot September with severe weather
(KTEN) – September started out with a bang in the temperature department! A daily record high of 106° on September 7 was broken and a daily record high of 101° on September 8 was tied.
Sherman’s monthly rainfall total ended up below average at 2.88 inches, where the average is 3.43 inches.
Notably on September 22, 2.30 inches of rain fell at the KTEN studios in Denison, Texas from severe storms that pummeled North Texas.
Thankfully, the KTEN Weather Team alongside an amazing KTEN Engineering staff installed our new rain gauge on September 21 in order to accurately measure the amount of rain that fell from those storms.
Mid-September brought the first mini taste of fall to Texoma with nearly a week of below average temperatures. The heat returned to wrap up the end of the month with highs in the 90s.
With sizable amounts of rainfall in certain locations, the drought has improved for some. Nonetheless, we still need a lot more rain to finally say we are drought-free.
September 23 and 24 brought additional severe weather to Texoma. Impressive images were taken of a supercell in Ada, OK on September 23.
Baseball size hail was observed in Allen, Oklahoma as well.
September 24 brought severe weather to locations along the Red River. The storms allowed for a beautiful sunset for some with overreaching cirrus clouds from the severe storm’s anvil.
As the fall season charges on, more instances of severe weather could be possible. Stay weather aware!
