A Windy Wednesday; Weekend Storm System Bears Watching
5:00 p.m. Tue 22 April 2014
Surface high pressure brought in much drier and more comfortable conditions to Texoma today and this will continue overnight. Look for lows in the 50s under clear skies.
Wednesday will begin sunny but we will see some increase in cloud cover as the day continues. The wind will also become quite gusty at 20-30 mph. Severe storms are likely to form along a dry line that will be far to our west during the day, so no storms are expected here. Some of these storms could arrive late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning. Since they will tend to weaken as they move eastward during the overnight hours, severe weather is not expected in most of Texoma at that time. The far western counties will have a low risk late Wednesday evening.
Thursday should be another nice day as a weak cold front passes and stabilizes the atmosphere. Friday should be similar to Tuesday with sunny skies, a cool morning and a warm afternoon.
The weekend forecast gets a little tricky as a deep upper trough, dry line and strong return flow of Gulf moisture set the stage for a significant severe weather outbreak. Sunday is the most likely day for impacts in Texoma…but as always a slight shift in the position or strength of these scenarios can make a large difference in the outcome.
Stay tuned….but I wanted to give you a heads up that there is a significant severe potential this weekend, especially Sunday.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Clear and Cool…..Lows 48 to 54
Wednesday: 30% Storms Very Late, Windy …..Highs 81 to 86
Thursday: 30% Thunderstorms A.M.…..64/84
Friday: Mostly Sunny,…..…..55/83
Saturday: 30% Thunderstorms Late…..…..66/84
Sunday: 50% Thunderstorms, Possibly Severe…..…..66/80
Monday: 20% Rain A.M., Breezy…..66/80
Tuesday: Sunny Skies, Windy, Cooler…..55/68
May You Have A Terrific Wednesday!
