Front Brings Rain, then Dry for Mid-Week
5:00 p.m. Monday 22 May 2017
A cold front moves through Oklahoma overnight and through Texoma Tuesday morning, bringing a fairly good chance of showers and thunderstorms. While a general severe weather event is not expected, a few pockets of hail are possible. Locally heavy rainfall will be the main event with these storms. Coverage looks highest over the southern half of Texoma, areas that received the least rain last week, so overall flooding potential is low.
A strong mid-level trough lags behind the front leaving a few showers/storms possible through mid-day Tuesday followed by a clear and cool Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
A strong southwesterly wind flow will boost temperatures into the 90-degree range for Friday and Saturday; there’s a chance of thunderstorms either Saturday or Sunday, depending on which model you believe, as a new front arrives. For now I will include a chance of thunderstorms for both days until the picture becomes clearer.
All of the models get rid of this system in time for a dry Memorial Day.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: 60% Rain or Thunderstorms, small hail possible….Lows upper 50s
Tuesday: 40% Rain, mainly morning….Highs 65 to 71
Wednesday: Sunny skies, a nice day…..54/75
Thursday: Windy and warm…..54/87
Friday: Partly cloudy, windy and hot…..70/91
Saturday: 30% Thunderstorms….73/90
Sunday: 40% Thunderstorms…..73/83
Monday: Mostly sunny…..64/83
