Rain Friday, Cloudy and Cool Weekend, Mild Christmas Eve
5:15 p.m. Thu 18 Dec 2014
A mid-level trough I’ve been keeping tabs on all week is now over the Inter-Mountain West and poised to move through Texoma on Friday. This brings more rain through our skies but amounts will be considerably lower than we saw Wednesday, with the significant rain to our south.
The system departs to the east for the weekend, but it looks like weak low-level winds, a strong inversion and high moisture content will keep skies cloudy over the weekend, but rain is not expected.
There will be a chance for a few showers along a cold front coming through Monday night/Tuesday morning and it looks like Dec 23 will be windy.
The outlook for Christmas Eve is for a beautiful day with loads of sun and mild highs near 60. Christmas Day looks to be windy and quite mild too. However, two models bring in an arctic front late in the day, so if this system speeds up then Christmas might be windy and cold.
The system looks rather dry so there’s no rain…or snow…in my Christmas Day outlook at present.
Tonight: Drizzle and Fog, Cold…..Lows 39 to 42
Friday: 30% Rain north to 70% South…..Highs 46 to 50
Saturday: Mostly Cloudy…..38/50
Sunday: Mostly Cloudy …..38/51
Monday: Decreasing Clouds, Windy…..43/64
Tuesday: Mostly Sunny, Windy. …..39/58
Christmas Eve: Sunny Skies…..35/60
Christmas Day: Windy and Mild…..39/62
May You Have A Super Weekend!
