A Pleasant Week Ahead…

The atmosphere offers Texoma a chance to dry out and a take a breather from severe weather this week.
A large upper-level low will position itself over the Ohio Valley by mid-week while a similar feature develops over the western U.S. This leaves us under the influence of a “hump” in the jet stream in between, known as a ridge. Ridges promote a sinking motion so we should have mostly clear nights and sunny days right through Friday.
It will be quite cool at night thanks to unseasonably dry air; lows should be well into the 40s overnight and generally around 50 for the next few nights. Highs will run into the 70s and 80s; with the low relative humidity, we’re talking truly enjoyable outdoor conditions.
The upper low to our west may get close enough to bring a chance of showers and storms by Sunday, but right now we’re talking 30 percent as there’s so much uncertainty that far out.
In the meantime, it’s great weather stuff for early May!
