Fall Weather has arrived just in time for the first weekend in October. It will be a great weekend for outdoor activities and of course chores. Keeping our skies Mostly Sunny is a surface ridge of High Pressure that extends from West Texas to the Great Lakes. The air is very dry with dew points in the 40s. Meanwhile, over the Texas & Oklahoma Panhandles an Upper Air Disturbance is continuing to cause Clouds and Showers mainly north of I-44. Because of the disturbance to our northwest we will have a mixture of High Clouds and Sunshine through Sunday.
Today … Skies have been Partly Cloudy to Mostly Sunny, Cool and Dry. Winds are light North-Northeast 5-15 mph with Afternoon Highs near 76.
Tonight … Dry Air, Mostly Clear Skies and Light Winds will help Temperatures drop into the upper 40s and Low 50s by morning.
Sunday ... another weak disturbance passes just to the west of Texoma with Partly Cloudy Skies west of I-35 and a 10% chance of a Shower. Otherwise, Texoma skies will be a mixture of Sunshine & High Clouds. Winds will be North 5-15 mph and Afternoon Highs near 77.
Monday … skies clear becoming Mostly Sunny across all of Texoma as the Upper Air High Pressure builds in overhead, blocking disturbances from the west. Surface winds will become very light North-Northeast 5-15 mph … as Afternoon Highs warm to near 80.
Tuesday … a Mostly Sunny and even warmer day with High pressure overhead. Winds will continue to be Light 5-10 mph from the North. Morning Lows will be in the Mid 50s and Afternoon Highs will be pushing 85.
Wednesday … as the Surface High drifts east we will be on the back side of the High … and our Winds finally swing Southeast 5-15 mph. Gulf Moisture returns and skies become Partly Cloudy with very slight chance of a late Afternoon Shower. Morning Low rise back to near 61 … and Afternoon Highs will be near 87.
Thursday … Gulf Moisture increases in advance of our next Upper Air Disturbance and Cold Front. Skies become Partly to Mostly Cloudy with Afternoon & Evening Showers and Storms likely. Winds will be out of the South-Southeast 10-20 mph with Afternoon Highs a tad cooler near 87.
Friday … as the Disturbance passes by plan on more Rain and Showers. Behind the Front Highs will only reach 73. Depending on how fast the Upper Air Disturbance drifts east will determine if we will have Showers & Storms … for Friday Night Football.
