Fox Texoma Weather

Fox Forecast

A very cold evening ahead with snow on the way
5:00 p.m. Thursday 26 February 2015

Temperatures were cold today as the cold front really dropped our temperatures. As they will continue to get colder through the evening into the morning, we have a winter weather advisory issued for almost all of Texoma starting at 6am and expiring at 6pm Friday evening. This is because morning temperatures will be very cold, in the upper teens to lower 20s with a wind chill in the single digits at times and snow is looking to start up around this time as well in the morning. A shortwave trough over the four corners region will work its way easterly which will bring a wave of snow starting around 6-7am. As there is dryer air aloft, the snow looks like it will be the dry and fluffy kind, not the large, wet snow flakes we had just the other day. Accumulations will vary, some areas might just get a dusting of snow and other parts could see up to 1-3 inches. The higher snow amounts look to stay to the western half of Texoma, the further east you go is where the amounts seem to get less and less. Main concern would be bridges and overpasses. Morning commute should be fine as the snow doesn’t even show to start up until then, but by the afternoon driving conditions should slow down. Temperatures will remain below freezing in the afternoon as highs will range in the upper 20s. Friday night into Saturday as temperatures change and another wave starts up, we transition the precipitation to a wintry mix possibility around 50%. Then from Saturday night into Sunday we will then again transition to freezing drizzle to just rain once temperatures get above freezing by Sunday afternoon. Sunday through the middle of next week then just holds chances for showers as finally temps get above freezing.

Tonight: Lows around 20 with mostly cloudy skies
Friday: Cloudy… 20/28 with a 60% chance for snow starting in the 6-7am timeframe
Saturday: Cloudy… 24/35 with a 50% chance for wintry mix, freezing rain by Sunday AM
Sunday: Cloudy… 33/47 with a 50% chance for showers
Monday: Cloudy… 36/50 with a 50% chance for showers/t-storms
Tuesday: Mostly Cloudy… 44/60 with a 60% chance for showers/t-storms
Wednesday: Partly Cloudy… 39/54 with a 30% chance for sct. showers
Thursday: Partly Cloudy… 33/45 with a 20% chance for an iso. shower

Have a great evening and stay warm,
