Severe Potential/Flood Threat Friday; Quiet for the Weekend
5:00 p.m. Thursday 28 April 2016
Texoma enjoyed another sun-filled and quiet weather day Thursday, and your Thursday evening should be nice as well. Late tonight, another round of storms takes shape as the frontal boundary that moved southward yesterday begins to return north as a warm front.
Meanwhile, the next upper level component makes its way eastward, providing strong lift and some cold air aloft for even more lift, and higher hail potential. The primary threat with any late-night storm will be hail.
Friday is a different animal; depending on several factors including how much the early-day storms cool the low-level air, and where the outflow boundaries area, we could see several pockets of supercell thunderstorms by late Friday afternoon. Tornadoes are once again a possibility.
A Pacific cold front arrives late Friday and the storms will probably gather into a squall lie along it. The rain chance ends by dawn Saturday in the east, leaving the weekend quite pleasant.
The next chance of rain, probably sub-severe, comes with a passing system on Monday.
Tonight: 60% Storms Very Late….a few could produce hail…Low lower 60s
Friday: 80% Rain/Thunderstorms, heavy rainfall/possible severe…..Highs mid-70s
Saturday: 30% Rain early…..63/80
Sunday: Mostly sunny…..55/76
Monday: 30% Showers…..53/70
Tuesday: 30% Showers…..55/77
Wednesday: Sunny Skies…..58/83
Thursday: Partly Cloudy…..60/76
