FORECAST UPDATE: 9:50 p.m. I raised tonight's lows a few degrees but otherwise no changes to the forecast. One more warm one tomorrow...and windy too. Have a great night - Steve ==========
Another Warm One Tomorrow, Cold and Wet by Saturday 5:00 p.m. Tue 27 Jan 2015
Look for a clear night with fairly mild temperatures for mid-winter: near 40 east to mid-40s west.
Winds begin to pick up during the day Wednesday and will become quite gusty at 20 to 30 mph; the wind stays up Wednesday night making for a milder Thursday morning with lows near 50.
A front passes around sunrise Thursday; it is not an arctic front but it will introduce colder air to Texoma; Thursday’s highs will be 15 to 20 degrees cooler than Wednesday’s.
A mid-level trough begins moving eastward from California as the weekend approaches while southerly flow brings Gulf moisture northward on top of a dry surface air mass. This type of set-up favors evaporative cooling and a chilly rain is in the Saturday forecast. Indications point to rainfall totals of more than an inch, and it may be fairly heavy rain at times.
The rain should end Sunday as the trough moves away; another shot of cold air blows in during the day with gusty north winds.
Sunshine returns on Monday with seasonably cool conditions.
