UPDATE: 10:30 p.m.
A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for western portions of Texoma north of the Red River until 2 a.m. This includes Love, Carter, Murray, and Pontotoc Counties and points west.
Scattered but intense thunderstorms may produce large hail or damaging winds; the threat for tornadoes is very low. Locally heavy rainfall is also possible given a very moist atmosphere.
The potential for severe weather decreases tomorrow as a mid-level wave moves away to the east and we are “in between” systems during the peak heating period. A few scattered thunderstorms are still possible so I will include a 20% chance for Wednesday.
A cold front sweeps through late Thursday into early Friday, and more thunderstorms, a few possibly severe, are expected along this boundary.
Friday and Saturday should be dry before a cool rain moves in for Sunday with an over-running pattern.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: 40% Thunderstorms, some severe….Lows near 60
Wednesday: Windy, 20% Thunderstorms…..Highs 78 to 83
Thursday: Windy, 30% Storms Late….64/84
Friday: Clearing, windy and cooler…..61/66
Saturday: Sunny …..43/70
Sunday: 30% Rain by afternoon…..48/61
Monday: Mostly cloudy, windy…..60/78
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy, windy…..64/80
