Scattered showers and t-storms in AM, then clearing skies
7:00 a.m. Thursday 24 April 2014
A line of showers with embedded thunderstorms sweeps across Texoma this morning with the cold front. Storms are remaining below severe status which is good, just might encounter some small hail from these thunderstorms. Once the cold front passes later this afternoon, winds will have rotated around from the northwest and high pressure quickly moves in leaving us in the late afternoon hours with mostly sunny to partly cloudy conditions and we catch a break from the rain. There are some windy conditions expected today, where gusts can reach up to 30mph from the northwest. Friday will be a nice day as well and we warm up just a little more as sunshine will crank back up the heat. Now the weekend is what we really need to watch as there is the potential for severe weather. Saturday evening we jump up to a slight chance for scattered showers/t-storms and pushing into Sunday this jumps up to 60% chance. A stout cold front will move through and with the atmospheric setting up for favorable conditions for severe weather, Saturday evening going into Sunday and even Sunday evening into Monday morning is the duration of the system and Saturday and Sunday is when we need to watch for severe weather. As thunderstorms can turn severe, the risks are large hail, damaging winds, heavy rainfall under thunderstorm and isolated tornadoes. As stated that this next front is on the stronger side, it will cool down our temperatures from Monday and going to Wednesday, we can get down to the mid 60s.
After this front passes today, things will clear up nicely for us where sunshine will finally peak through and winds will gust up to 30mph.
Tonight: Low around 52 with mostly clear skies
Friday: Mostly Sunny… 52/83
Saturday: Partly Cloudy… 57/82 with 20% chance for scattered showers/t-storms in evening
