Showery and Mild End to July?


The first front coming through this weekend will present a chance of showers and storms; however, a much more promising rain scenario unfolds into next week.
This forecast is based upon a deep northerly flow aloft and southerly flow at the surface. This makes for an unstable air mass with steering winds bringing fronts our way. Each front serves as a focal point for more shower and storm formation.
Along with more clouds and rain potential, cooler air masses behind each front should keep the severe heat at bay.
Although late July through mid August is usually the hottest of the year in Texoma, we should finish July 2009 with normal to below normal temperatures thank to this weather pattern.
Take Care,

    Anonymous from Whitesboro...this has by far NOT been a mild summer. There have been many days(there are actually some records that have been set for the number of days) of 100 degree temps. already and we are only at the end of July(N. Texas has had many 100 degree days too...not just S. Texas). This summer has been unusually HOT and has been extremely dry! Definitely not mild. There are just some areas that have been fortunate to get some showers, and that has helped the least up north. Make a visit down here in S. Texas and you will see a VERY different perspective. Go on the internet and check out the latest on Lake Travis. They have closed all but one boat ramp due to the extremely low levels. And that one is about to be closed too, if it's not already. The Texoma area has been fairly fortunate, but there's a lot more of Texas out there! The drought in Texas effects everyone in Texas!

    Since a weak to moderate El Nino is taking shape, this pattern favors cool and rather wet. So drought will probably not be an issue next spring.

    I am happy that we've had a "mild" summer! Although the bugs are terrible, I am really happy to see the grass and trees still green! I cannot remember when the last time everything remained green so long! Wonder what this winter will be like? Any ideas?
