No changes to previous forecast: front will pass through Texoma Saturday morning and leave us in a windy cold regime Saturday and Sunday. Coldest temperatures will range 14 to 23 Monday morning followed by a warming trend next week.
Expected frontal position, 6pm Sat 11 Dec 2010 / ECMWF model

Another interesting weather system rolls through this Saturday with plenty ‘o wind...and a plentiful supply of cold too.
More wintry temperatures are collecting over northern Canada, and this shot of arctic air will come tumbling southward Friday night and Saturday.
A mid-level trough and surface low pressure areas will help to tighten the pressure field and make it very windy behind the front. There won’t be a lot of moisture to work with (once again), but a little rain is possible as the trough aloft scoots by during the day Saturday. We’re talking windy 20s with wind chills in the single numbers Sunday morning and lows in the teens to low 20s Monday mornings. Brrr!
A reminder: If you leave town, don’t turn your heater off, just turn it down to a low reading like 55. This will help keep your pipes from freezing.
