Daily Historical Weather for July 28
Beginning on July 28, 2004, heavy rain produced flash flooding across western north Texas and south-central Oklahoma. After 48 hours, up to 8 inches of rain had been measured in Archer and Knox counties, with nearly 5 inches across Wichita and Clay counties. Runoff caused several rivers to spill their banks, including the South Wichita River, which eventually crested nearly 5 feet above flood stage near Benjamin, the 3rd highest crest on record for that site. Ardmore received nearly 5 inches of rain as well, along with flash flooding at the Chickasaw National Recreation Center.
Heavy rain and large hail fell on parts of central Oklahoma on July 28, 1988. Rainfall amounts of five to six inches, sometimes accompanied by golf ball-size hail, fell near Coyle and Langston, both in Logan County. The resulting flash flooding covered some roads up to three feet deep, and damaged a bridge south of Langston.
