FORECAST UPDATE: 9:25 p.m. No change...watch out for some fog overnight - Steve
Lots of Clouds this Weekend; Mild for Christmas Eve and Christmas
5:15 p.m. Fri 19 Dec 2014
A mid-level trough that brought scattered light rain Friday is moving away from Texoma. I don’t expect any rain this weekend, but we won’t have much sun either. Locally dense fog forms again tonight but it should break up by mid-to-late morning Saturday. I expect skies to remain mostly cloudy on Saturday as a saturated lower atmosphere, low sun angle and cool surface temperatures conspire to keep sunshine on the skimpy side.
Clouds will thin out by Monday as a stronger low-level flow kicks in and mixes out the moisture through a deeper layer of air. A dry front passes through Monday night followed by windy conditions for Tuesday.
The outlook for Christmas Eve is for windy and mild conditions with highs near 60; it will be even warmer Christmas Day with highs in the 60s thanks to a southwesterly surface flow. A strong cold front is showing up in the models to pass on Friday. There’s still six days to go and if the front were to speed up Christmas would come in cooler than my current forecast. Since the front is actually showing up later than indicated in Thursday’s model output, I’m going with a warm Christmas for now.
Tonight: Locally Dense Fog….Lows 39 to 42
Saturday: Mostly Cloudy…..Highs 48 to 53
Sunday: Mostly Cloudy …..40/53
Monday: Decreasing Clouds, Windy…..44/64
Tuesday: Sunny, Windy. …..39/54
Christmas Eve: Sunny Skies and Windy…..34/61
Christmas Day: Windy and Mild…..38/65
Friday: Windy, Turning Colder…..50/54
May You Have A Super Weekend!
