Cooler for the Weekend, Rain Potential Sunday
5:00 p.m. Friday 12 February 2016
Arctic high pressure will lay down a footprint of cold over the eastern third of the U.S. while Texoma will be on the western side of the system, getting only a glancing shot of colder air this weekend. Tonight is forecast to be the coldest night of the next seven days with a light freeze possible.
Sunshine to partly cloudy skies can be expected for Saturday with highs in the 50s-seasonably cool for mid-February. A mid-level wave now over the Pacific Northwest passes over us Sunday night and Monday, bringing a chance of rain. Meanwhile, surface low pressure develops over north Texas further enhancing the chance for some precipitation. Amounts are expected to be fairly low: less than a tenth of an inch west to perhaps half an inch east.
Low-level temperatures warm again next week with a westerly wind, and we’re back to around 70 degrees by mid-week. At this rate, flowers will be blooming very soon as no serious cold air masses are in sight.
Tonight: Clear and Cold…..Lows 30 to 36
Saturday: Mostly Sunny (Clouds Increase Late)…..Highs 52 to 57
Sunday: 40% Showers…..45/57
Monday: 40% Rain A.M..…..46/61
