Rain Chances not Promising
5:00 p.m. Tue 6 October 2015
A stubbornly dry pattern is hanging in there with cool nights but warm days in the offing into next week.
A weak front will approach Friday and may provide enough lift for some low-end precipitation, but it should be quite light at a quarter inch or less in most areas.
A well-defined upper low now over Arizona is moving eastward, and this would normally raise hopes for Texoma to get some widespread soaking rainfall; however, the steering currents are expected to pull this low southward and then westward over northern Mexico later in the week. This leaves us too far away to receive heavier precipitation.
The long-range outlook calls for temperatures to be around 90 by early next week thanks to an unseasonably strong high aloft. It seems our unusually warm September has become a warmer-than-average October.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Clear to Partly Cloudy….Lows 55 to 60
Wednesday: Partly Cloudy…..Highs 84 to 87
Thursday: Partly Cloudy…..62/88
Friday: 20% Showers …..64/82
Saturday: Decreasing Clouds…..57/82
Sunday: Sunny Skies …..59/88
Monday: Sunny Skies…..64/91
Tuesday: Mostly Sunny…..62/87
