Early Spring Like weather will continue thought Tuesday. And, It will be a Great News for Drought stricken Texoma. Saturday we enjoyed 1/4” to 3/4” of an inch of rain, heaviest east of Hwy 69/75. Today Gulf Moisture increases with low flying, afternoon isolated showers mainly south of the Red River. Monday the Dry Line tries to break the Cap and trigger storms. Then Tuesday the Canadian Cold Front will cause Storms and Heavy Rain to erupt. Potentially 1" to 3" inches. Wednesday, depending on how cold we get behind the Front, a Winter Mix is possible. Tuesday into Wednesday we could receive see up to 1” to 3” inches of needed rain. There is a chance of isolated strong to severe storms with high winds and hail as the main threat.
Today … while Sunday outdoor activities will not be a wash out, you may have to deal with some patchy sprinkles and light rain.
Tonight … Sunday evening Drizzle and Light Rain will continue, as evening and overnight temperatures hold steady or warm to near 60.
Monday … Presidents Day extremely strong winds 30-40 mph from the South will increase Gulf moisture across Texoma, ahead of another mid-upper air disturbance. By afternoon the combination of the moisture, lift and heating will trigger more Rain and Thunder.
Tuesday … we introduce a Cold Front providing additional Lift and wind shear … triggering a second round of potentially stronger Thunderstorms. Winds Tuesday will swing from Southwest to North 25-35 mph as the front passes.
Wednesday … cold air pours into Texoma. Showers and Isolated elevated Storms will linger into the day. If the Canadian Air is cold enough we could have a Freezing Rain & Sleet mix. As high pressure builds in across Texoma, morning lows drop to near freezing. Winds will be Northeast 15-25 mph under Mostly Cloudy skies with highs, for now, in the upper 40s.
Thursday & Friday we finish out the week with the broad High Pressure drifting to our east, winds turning South and Gulf Moisture returns, overrunning the Cool Air at the Surface bringing more low clouds and rain by Friday.
With our Moderate, Severe to Extreme Drought conditions across Texoma ... a week of much needed liquid sunshine will be welcomed.
