Very Cold Tonight, but Warmer Days Ahead

Texoma lost almost of its snow cover today as many spots made it close to 40 degrees and that plus bright sunshine did the trick.
There could be a few patches of ice forming on roads tonight due to refreezing, and there may be some ice that remained in the shadows today and did not completely melt, but 95% of the roads will be dry tonight. Surface high pressure, clear skies and very light winds will allow for lows to fall into the upper teens to lower 20s.
Friday will see temperatures pushing 50 and winds from the south. The warming trend continues on Saturday, and after a chilly start with lows in the upper 20s we should get well into the 50s with another sunny day at hand.
The 7-Day Forecast has even better news as a west-to-east jet stream flow helps get temperatures well into the 60s…and possibly to 70…by the middle of next week. No precipitation is expected during the next 5 to 7 days except for a small chance on Sunday as a weak trough and front pass.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Clear and Very Cold…Lows 17 to 23
Sunday: 20% Rain…..37/56
Monday: Partly Cloudy…..38/63
Tuesday: Mostly Sunny…..39/66
Wednesday: Partly Cloudy…..42/69
Thursday: Partly Cloudy…..47/71
