Moderate Risk For Severe: May 10th

May 9, 2008

A complex and potentially volatile weather pattern is evolving for Saturday. A cold front will be moving northwest to southeast across northern Texas and southern Oklahoma by afternoon. A dry line will pivot eastward ahead of the front; quite similar to Wednesday’s severe outbreak. An upper level low will also be tracking across northern Oklahoma from west to east. The upper low is a bit further north than the May 7 event…but there still looks to be a sufficiently unstable air mass in place for violent weather to develop during the afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has a large chunk of Texoma in a moderate risk of severe storms for Saturday afternoon and evening.

The front and dry line will merge and press quickly east Saturday evening. Mother’s day will be on the windy side, but sunny and mild.

 

Because of this event, I have delayed my blog on next week's cool spell until Monday. It still looks to be in the cards to begin next Thursday, with some very cool May nights (40s), mild days, and dry air.

Take Care,
