Dragged on showers and storms
Noon Friday 29 May 2015
Showers and t-storms are continuing on as this system drags across the area. It is a weather aware day as these storms are mainly in a marginal risk area, meaning they can become strong producing some hail, heavy rainfall, and high winds. There is a slight risk off to the west now including a few northwestern counties but it is a small section for severe storm potential. The main concern we have for today is the flooding potential since the rain chances hold out at a 40% through the majority of the day. A flash flood watch is still in effect for the area and for most it doesn’t appear to lift until we get to Sunday when the rain finally lets up. Another big factor for today is that we are very close to breaking the record water level out at Lake Texoma as well as this rain feeds into the lake. Highs today will be a little bit cooler, in the upper 70s for most of us and the winds will be lower at 15-20mph from the south. The rain looks like it continues overnight into Saturday, still at 70% so we see similar temps tomorrow too around the upper 70s. The good news is that a cold front will start to push through on Saturday afternoon, so by Sunday we only have a low 20% chance for a pop up shower in the morning, then the rest of the day is rain free and even into the week too! By next week, an upper level ridge of high pressure will be accompanying our stable conditions and warming us up into the upper 80s with sunshine.
Tonight: Lows around 65 with cloudy skies & a 60% chance for showers/t-storms
Saturday: Mostly Cloudy… 65/77 with a 70% chance for showers/t-storms
Sunday: Partly Cloudy… 61/77 with a 20% chance for sct. showers/t-storms in the morning
Monday: Mostly Sunny… 59/80

Get excited for a dry week next week!
