UPDATE: 9:55 p.m. I raised the chances of rain overnight a bit based on a faster movement of the precipitation pattern toward Texoma; otherwise, no changes - Steve ================================================
Flash Flood Watch for NW Texoma through Wednesday 5:00 p.m. Monday 6 July 2015
A slow-moving frontal boundary is expected to become stationary from central Oklahoma into northwest Texas Tuesday while a mid-level wave approaches. These two lifting sources (plus daytime heating) will interact with an exceptionally moist air mass for July, setting the stage for flooding rainfall.
A Flash flood Watch is posted for areas from Ada to Ardmore west and north; four to six inches of rain could fall in these areas. Flash flooding is likely so please be alert to rising water and never drive through flooded areas.
Farther east, locally heavy but scattered rainfall can be expected in the one to three inch range. In general, you will tend to receive more rainfall during this event the farther north and west you live in Texoma. Should the front edge a bit more to the east, the heavy rain pattern would also cover more of our area. This is a 50-mile kind of deal but for now the Flood Watch is only for the NW sector.
The front dissipates and the wave moves way with rain leaving the forecast by Thursday; the hottest weather of the summer is expected to develop under strengthening high pressure with highs getting close to 100 by Monday. At least, skies should be rain-free from Friday through the weekend.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: 80% Thunderstorms West to 20% East, Breezy….Lows 73 to 76 Tuesday: 80% Thunderstorms …..Highs 83 west to 90 east Wednesday: 60% Thunderstorms …..70/86 Thursday: Mostly Sunny …..74/92 Friday: Mostly Sunny…..72/93 Saturday: Sunny Skies…..74/95 Sunday: Sunny Skies.…..75/96 Monday: Sunny Skies …..75/98
