Great Weather for Thanksgiving, Very Windy for the Weekend
4:30 p.m. Wed 26 Nov 2014
A cold front passed through Texoma Wednesday morning and introduced gusty north winds in its wake; these winds diminish to nearly calm tonight allowing for a cold start to Thanksgiving 2014.
After the morning chill, dry air and lots of sun should get us into the 55 to 60 degree range by afternoon – nice!
The surface pressure field steadily tightens Fri-Sat due to westerly jet stream flow over the Rockies; this is a classic pattern for strong southerly winds in Texoma. Wind speeds could get close to 40 mph on Saturday. Along with the wind come unseasonably warm temperatures in the mid to upper 70s this weekend.
The next frontal system is expected at the end of the Holiday weekend with a modest cool-down for Monday, but warming right back up to above normal temperatures by mid-week. There’s only a slight chance of rain by Wednesday with return flow.
