Wind Eases Overnight; a Dry Spell Ahead with Warming Mid-Week
5:00 p.m. Monday 8 February 2016
Texoma was raked by strong pressure-gradient (non-thunderstorm) winds on Monday, with most locations hitting at least 40 mph. Newport, near Ardmore, measured the highest gust of the day at 50 mph. The wind will ease somewhat overnight as the air near the ground cools, but we’re still looking at winds in the 15 to 25 mph range and lows around 30, making for a gusty and very cold night.
A warming trend sets in Tuesday with highs into the mid and upper 50s; we punch easily into the 60s on Wednesday and Thursday with continued very dry air in place.
A dry cold front passes on Friday but cooling with it will be moderate; we’ll still get into the 50s on Saturday. Overnight lows will be coldest tonight and tomorrow night, with overnight lows seasonably cold, in the 30s, this weekend.
There’s a chance of rain Sunday night and Monday as another front and mid-level trough passes, but moisture looks very limited, leaving that event in the 30 percent range for now.
Tonight: Windy, Very Cold…Lows 27 to 32
Tuesday: Sunny, Windy…..Highs 53 to 57
Thursday: Mostly Sunny…..43/68
Sunday: 20% Showers Late…..38/55
Monday: 30% Showers.....40/60
