Heavy Rain Focus: Late Thursday through Saturday
5:00 p.m. Wednesday 25 November 2015
Flash Flood Watches are now in effect for all of Texoma beginning Thursday evening; they will extend through Friday evening for southern Oklahoma and through Saturday evening for north Texas.
Our wet weather system will deliver the rain, and some of it will be very heavy, but the whole system has hit the brakes just a little bit. This means the heaviest rain will likely wait until Friday or at least very late Thursday. However, there is a high chance of rain Thursday and it will be very windy, so driving will still be a bit tough.
There’s a threat of freezing rain and sleet from west of Oklahoma City and Lawton westward into the Texas Panhandle, and a Winter Storm Watch is posted for the western parts of Oklahoma. It looks like the air just won’t cool enough (thankfully) for ice here. Flash flooding is the primary concern with this pattern.
