Heavy Rain, Flooding Thanksgiving Night-Friday, Wet and Cold Friday-Saturday
5:00 p.m. Tuesday 24 November 2015
The forecast reasoning has changed very little in the past 24 hours. A slow-moving cold front and a series of mid-level waves will lift an increasingly moist atmosphere to dump heavy rain on Texas and Oklahoma beginning Thanksgiving Day. The cold front passes during the day Friday, making for a warm and wet Thanksgiving and a cold and soggy Friday.
There’s a threat of freezing rain and sleet from Oklahoma City and Lawton westward, but it looks like the air just won’t cool enough (thankfully) for ice here. Flash flooding is the primary concern with this pattern.
Rain continues on Saturday and gradually ends by Sunday. Drier weather returns for the first part of next week.
