Mid-May Quiet and Cool Spell


Expect a period of rather cool and dry weather - in fact, unseasonably cool for mid-May. This should extend into the new week.
A deep and slow-moving low aloft will dominate the circulation over the eastern half of the U.S. through Monday.
The air flow around this feature will allow a northerly surface flow and dry Canadian air to penetrate all the way into the Gulf: not very common for this late in the season.
This should keep Texoma skies mostly clear; the dry air will be cool at night in the 40s, with daytime highs in the low to mid 70s. These numbers are more than 10 degrees below average for this time of year.
No rain is expected during the period Saturday May 14th – Monday, May 16th.
Take Care,
Steve LaNore
Chief Meteorologist

    Deanna, First of all congratulations and best wishes to all! The weather does not appear to be in a festive mood Fri or Sat. I have a 50% chance of thunderstorms in Friday’s forecast and 40% for Saturday. The pattern producing this rain will move very slowly. This makes timing it to a certain part of the day difficult, and I recommend having an indoor plan “B”. Please understand all forecasts will have a better chance of being right the closer we get to the day in question -:) take Care, Steve Sam, Texoma severe storm activity begins to decrease (on average) by late May. A small secondary peak takes place in Sep-Oct with fall cold fronts. So we’re just about to come out of the peak of the season but with a continued elevated severe risk into mid June. Take Care, Steve

    Could you please elaborate a little on the chances for rain on Friday and Saturday May 20 & 21. Like maybe time of day most possible, etc. We have an outdoor wedding planned for Saturday and are anxious as to if we need to move it indoors. Thank you.
