Hot and Humid, Several Storms Chances through Sunday
5:00 pm Wed 20 June 2018
The Summer Solstice takes place at 5:07am CDT on Thursday, June 21, 2018…but we know Texoma has been in a very summery pattern since mid-May!
A weak upper trough and surface front fired off scattered thunderstorms this afternoon and evening; these should dissipate before midnight. Severe weather is unlikely, but winds to 45 mph and lots of lightning, along with very heavy rainfall can be expected in the stronger storm cores.
A lower chance of rain exists tomorrow because drier air will be filtering in behind the front; however, the boundary may stall along the Red River so I will keep rain chances for late Thursday at 30 percent.
A weak upper wave moves around the top of an upper ridge Saturday and this brings a higher chance of rain Saturday evening or Saturday night; after this the models agree on building the upper high, decreasing rain chances and boosting temperatures next week.
