Wetter Pattern For Week Of Oct 5-11

October 3, 2008

October is the 2nd wettest month of the year on average, and odds are increasing it will live up to its billing next week.

The steering force: the jet stream. This will bring at least two upper troughs our way during the next week or so. The moisture supply will be quite plentiful by the time the lead upper low shows up Monday-Tuesday, and rainfall could be heavy if the pattern continues to unfold as it seems to be doing.

As the first trough nears, surface pressures will be falling within the red zone (see map above), which includes all of Texoma. This will in turn make for rather windy weather as a low-level jet develops Sunday into Monday.  Enhanced lifting of the moisture field as the trough gets closer means a good chance of rain…for a change…by Monday afternoon into Tuesday.

The second trough should provide further rain chances later in the week.

All in all, a much more active weather pattern than we’ve seen the past three weeks.

Take Care,
