    I checked the decade and the five year precip data for Lawton OK. Almost exactly the same now as then. 1930-1940 matches 2005-2015. 1935-1940 matches 2010-2015

    Wet, flooding droughts are yet more proof that the models are correct. I can’t believe that some people still deny AGW.

    Checked 1920-1940, exactly the same as 1995-2015. Using a 25 year period, then was slightly worse than now.

    What data are they using I wonder?

    It could be the ASOS problem. Heavy downpours are not accurately measured by ASOS. Comparison with old fashioned rain gauges has shown this to be a problem. And the ASOS stations don’t care much about accuracy for rainfall at all. They could be mixing apple’s and oranges.
