UPDATE: 9:30 p.m.
No changes through Friday, but It looks like it'll be tough to get rid of all of the cloud cover this weekend. This is due to a pattern with very weak low-level winds and a moist air mass, so I'm going "mostly cloudy" for the weekend. Rain is not expected and temperatures will be fairly close to the average this weekend, so still quite decent for December.
Have a great Thursday - Steve
Uncertainty on Friday Rain System…
5:45 p.m. Wed 17 Dec 2014
A mid-level trough and strong low-level over-running made for a rainy Wednesday; even a few thunderstorms developed but lightning was their main effect on Texoma skies. It was cold too with 40 degrees about the max for most locations.
The impulse passes by Thursday morning so rain potential on Thursday will be much less, although a few patches of light rain are possible with weak over-running continuing. Temperatures will warm well into the 40s as the cloud deck with thin somewhat tomorrow.
A second system moves by on Friday with another round of rain expected. However, indications are that the “core” of this impulse will track south of Dallas, meaning northern portions of Texoma may receive no rain at all while southern areas could get some precipitation.
Sinking motion on the western side of the eastward-moving trough should allow for some clearing, but weak low-level winds will allow a fairly moist air mass to remain in place, so at least some clouds are expected.
Temperatures are expected to be at or above the seasonal norms from Saturday into the days before Christmas, with only a very slight chance of rain Monday along a passing cold front.
