Weather Alert for Severe Storms
Noon Monday 25 May 2015
For this Memorial Day, unfortunately it is another weather alert day as we could see a wave of showers and storms brought in later this afternoon by a midlevel disturbance and these storms could become strong to severe. Issued by the Storm Prediction Center, we have an enhanced to moderate risk for severe storms issued for Texoma. Flash flood watch is still in effect for all of Texoma, and flash flood warning is in effect for majority of southern Oklahoma. Within these strong storms, primary threats include heavy rainfall leading to flooding, large hail, damaging winds, and possible isolated tornado. A tornado watch is also in effect for the western half of Texoma until 6pm this evening and it may be expanded east. Highs will reach 80 today with winds from the south up to 20mph. By the later nighttime hours the rain should taper down a little bit to around a 40% chance for scattered showers/storms. By the morning, lows will be around the lower 60s and by the afternoon Tuesday we will hold only a 30% chance for scattered showers and t-storms. Through the week, highs will hang in the lower 80s and rain chances will bounce around from a 20% to 40% for showers and storms. Watch tomorrow afternoons storms as they have the possibility to become strong to severe again. By the weekend we cool down a little bit due to ta cold front pushing through on Sunday.
