Another Rainmaker for Thursday...

 

The map above shows the expected position of a new cold front for Wednesday.  This means that an active weather pattern continues. Gusty southerly winds return (orange arrows) for mid-week as the pressure field tightens with deepening low pressure to our west.
 
Gulf moisture supply will also return northward; meanwhile, an intense and slow-moving upper trough pushes the cold front slowly our way.
 
This type of weather scenario can produce very heavy rainfall depending on how the trough and front interact with the moisture field.
 
The bottom line is: Unfortunately, our soils won’t dry out any time soon and the lakes will continue higher than normal. There is heavy rain potential, especially Thursday, as well.
 
Take Care,

    Yes, the SPC has Texoma in a slight risk for severe late Wednesday and into Thursday. Most likely this will take the form of a squall line with damaging winds. The expected overnight nature of the event limits surface based instability; however, strong wind shear may present a small tornado threat too. Bears watching. Take Care, Steve

    Yes, the NAM model is picking this feature up for the Thursday 10a-4p time frame. Tightening isobars may make for good shear profile. SPC 4 day convective outlook Thursday has it too. Heavy rain no doubt but bears watching for severe potential.
