Flooding Threat Overnight/Wednesday; Hot for the Weekend
5:00 p.m. Tuesday 7 July 2015

Flash Flood Watches are posted overnight into Wednesday afternoon for basically the portions of Texoma along west of 75. This rain event is being driven by a stalled front over southern Oklahoma, tremendous inflow of Gulf moisture, and a passing mid-level wave.

Locally heavy rainfall can be expected through Wednesday morning; intensity and coverage of the rainfall tapering off Wednesday afternoon/evening as the front begins to dissipate and the wave moves away from Texoma.

Storm totals of up to six inches are possible over the western half of Texoma, such as Ardmore, with amounts more like two to three inches for Sherman and Durant, and an inch or two for Antlers and Paris.

A large ridge of upper high pressure builds westward along the Gulf coast and over the Red River Valley this weekend, making for sunny and hot weather. Highs should reach the upper 90s early next week for some of the hottest temps so far this year.

Here are the numbers:

Tonight: 80% Rain/Thunderstorms…Heavy Rain…Lows 70 to 75
Wednesday: 60% Thunderstorms, decreasing p.m. …..Highs 83 north to 89 south
Thursday: Partly Cloudy …..72/91
Friday: Sunny Skies…..72/92
Saturday: Sunny Skies…..72/94
Sunday: Sunny Skies.…..74/96
Monday: Sunny Skies …..75/98
Tuesday: Sunny Skies…..75/99
