Scattered Storm Potential; Front Passes Sunday Night/Monday
5 p.m. Fri 19 September 2014
The forecast continues to be quite challenging as we move into the weekend.
A mid-level low, the remnant of Hurricane “Odile”, continues to wobble slowly eastward from its position over western Texas. Meanwhile, upper-level high pressure is moving westward toward the low. The net result will be for the low to take a curved path around the high that leaves Texoma out of the path of concentrated rainfall.
However, there’s a good supply of moisture available and the lift from the low plus daytime heating should generate some scattered thunderstorms Saturday and Saturday night. The heaviest rainfall will be west of I-35, but all areas have some prospect for rain Saturday, especially after sunset.
Sunday’s precipitation potential may actually be better than Saturday’s as a cold front drops southward through Oklahoma late in the day. This rainfall would probably take place from sunset onward, so, I will put in a 30% chance of rain for Sunday.
Drier air filters in behind the front and the weather next week should a lot less humid. More like fall!
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Partly Cloudy…..Lows 67 to 72
Saturday: 40% Rain West to 20% East…Highs 88 to 92
Sunday: 20% Thunderstorms…..69/92
Monday: Mostly Clear …..67/87
Tuesday: Mostly Clear …..63/86
Wednesday: Mostly Clear …..62/86
Thursday: Partly Cloudy ….….64/89
Friday: Partly Cloudy…..66/87
May You Have a Safe and Fun Weekend!
