Front Arrives Thursday; Rain Potential Thu Night-Friday
4:45 p.m. Tuesday 28 July 2015
Upper-level high pressure will keep conditions very hot through Thursday, but a change is on the way.
The high shifts westward by mid-day Thursday; the clockwise flow around the high will bring upper-level winds out of the north. This change pushes a weak frontal boundary across the Red River on Thursday. There will be a chance of showers or a few storms along and behind the front as a weak mid-level trough drops down on the eastern side of the high.
A bubble of surface high pressure introduces a drier air mass into Texoma for the weekend, so while it will still be hot, we’re looking at more comfortable conditions to begin August than we’ve seen lately.
Temperatures return to the near-100 range by early next week.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Clear…Lows 73 to 78
Wednesday: Sunny…..Highs 96 to 99
Thursday: 20% Showers Late…..76/98
Friday: 30% Showers/Storms …..74/93
Saturday: Sunny Skies…..72/96
Sunday: Sunny Skies.…..72/98
Monday: Sunny Skies …..74/98
Tuesday: Sunny Skies…..75/100
