Fierce Winds, 80s, and Frost all in the Cards this Weekend

Tue 14 Nov 2017 / 9:40 pm

Texoma will continue in a rapidly changing weather pattern as we move through the weekend before Thanksgiving.

A strong jet stream flow over the Rockies will help to spin up a deep low-pressure area by Friday, which in turn will make for unseasonably warm and very windy conditions. Fire danger will be high on Friday with winds gusting to perhaps 40 mph from the southwest, and temperatures into the lower 80s.

A well-defined cold front then sweeps through Saturday morning, leaving us with an equally gusty north wind. Highs will drop about 20 degrees, maxing out in the lower 60s.

Frost is possible Sunday morning as a surface high settles overhead, but then we’re right back into a mild pattern in the days before Thanksgiving.

Hopefully, the Holiday Chef won’t have to run the A/C while cooking Thanksgiving dinner, but we’ll just have to wait and see on that part!

Take Care,

Deepening low pressure kicks up SW winds big-time on Friday, bringing very warm weather for November.
High pressure, clear skies and dry air, along with light winds, will allow for frost and possibly a light freeze Sunday morning.
