Heavy rains throughout area

By  | 

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for most of the KXII viewing area. The threat for severe weather is lowering...and heavy rain seems to be the main possibility overnight.

A combination of Gulf moisture and lifting provided by an upper low and a surface cold front is generating widespread rainfall over much of Oklahoma and Texas. The low will continue moving slowly eastward; expect several rounds of showers and thunderstorms off and on tonight, through Friday, and into Saturday morning.

The exact timing of each rainy period will be difficult to pinpoint; but an overall stormy/unsettled pattern is anticipated until the surface cold front passes sometime Saturday morning. The upper low will be drawing away at about this same time, and rain should end during the day Saturday.

Locally heavy rainfall is likely with this type of repeating pattern. General rainfalls of over an inch with amounts of two to three inches can be expected. Severe thunderstorms may accompany the passage of the front/upper low Friday night/Saturday morning.

Quieter weather is in the forecast Saturday evening through Monday. A fairly strong cold front (for April) looks to bring quite cool overnight lows and much lower humidity into Texoma about the middle of next week.
