Sunny & Humid
7:00 a.m. Wednesday 1 July 2015
Today we catch a break from the rain chances and the sunshine will be strong again along with the higher humidity. This won’t play much in our favor as highs will be in the lower 90s but the heat index will be pushing the 100s once again. The winds will be picking up a bit though today due to surface low pressure to our north so winds will be from the south up to 25mph. Now as we go into Thursday, the rain chances start to peek back in as the frontal boundary starts to drape further south in northern Oklahoma and this gives us a 20-30% chance for scattered showers/t-storms around the afternoon to evening hours. Tomorrow will at least be a weather aware day though as the Storm Prediction Center has issued over Texoma a marginal to slight risk for strong to severe storms. The primary threats from these strong storms will be damaging winds up to 70mph, heavy rainfall, and hail up to half dollar size. As we go into Friday, rain chances do increase from 50-70% for showers and storms and so far it is just a marginal risk for strong storms on Friday. Going into our Fourth of July, the greatest rain chances will be in the morning to the afternoon, but as we progress through the day the rain chances will continue to go down. So by the evening on the Fourth, we should just have a slight chance for a pop up shower/t-storm. We will watch how this develops for the holiday, but most likely we will be dodging a few showers and have a plan to go inside for a bit to avoid some rain.
