A Cold, Damp & Raw Shopping Weekend !
11:00 PM Friday 27 November 2015
It is a Weather Alert Night & Day, High rainfall amounts are the main concern leading to flooded roads. Be cautious on roads as puddling & ponding can lead to hydroplaning. Of course, if a road is completely covered in water, turn around don’t drown !
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Pontotoc, Garvin, Stephens, Murray, Carter, and Jefferson Counties until Noon Saturday. Up to ¼” inch of Ice could accumulate on Elevated Surfaces like Bridges and Overpasses.
Overnight we need to watch temperatures closely … as North & West Texoma is flirting with Freezing Temps ... which with the continued rain will cause periods of Mixed Precipitation including freezing rain and sleet.
Saturday & Sunday ... will be simply Raw, with steady cold rain and wind gusts reaching 25 mph. Rain will be heavy at times with non-severe embedded thunderstorms continuing through the weekend. Dangerous Flash Flooding will be the main concern. It will be Breezy and Chilly both days with Highs in the upper 30s, warming into the mid-40s by Sunday.
Once we get to Monday … the rain will taper off by the morning and finally temperatures will warm up into the low 50s. Then we get to enjoy Sunshine all the way through Thursday.
Be safe this shopping weekend,
