Today Texoma skies were struggling to clear up and warm into the 50s. The rain is gone for now. Tomorrow rain returns across the 2/3rds of Texoma and Tuesday we get another break from the rain before the first Arctic Cold Blast of the season arrives on Wednesday. So “Prepare Now” for the Hard Freeze … by protecting your Pipes, Pets and Plants. Don’t wait for Thursday & Friday’s Hard Freeze’s to turn into a bitter surprise.
Tonight … Skies tried to clear … some of us got to see Venus and Mars between the Mostly to Partly Cloudy skies. By morning periods of clear skies will help temperatures drop to near 39 degrees.
Monday … our next wave of Rain moves in from the Southwest. The Disturbance, an upper air trough, swings over Texoma lifting our moisture rich air, triggering bands of Showers and Storms. Winds will be from the East 5-15 mph. Because of the rain cooled air Afternoon Highs will be a tad cooler near 50.
Tuesday … will be the Warmest Day of the Week … starting with cool and dry morning Lows near 40 and winds from the Northeast 10-15 mph. It will be a Partly Cloudy & Dry day. If you have not already so … “Prepare Tuesday” by protecting your Pipes, Pets and Plants for Wednesday’s Arctic Cold Blast. Afternoon Highs will warm to 52 degrees, which will feel warm in the sun.
Overnight into Wednesday … winds will go near calm and temps will tumble to a crisp morning Low near 35.
Wednesday … our winds will start off South increasing to 20-30 mph under Mostly Cloudy skies. Then the Arctic Cold Front Blows across Texoma flipping our winds North, capping High Temps around 49. Skies will be Mostly Cloudy behind the Front with cold, dry air funneling in at the surface. By afternoon the temperature will be falling and with Wind Chill making it will feel like the 30s.
Overnight into Thursday … the Upper Air Trough passes by and clearing skies as we go Sub-Freezing with morning Lows dropping to 25.
Thursday … will be Bitter Cold under Blue Clear, Sunny Skies. North winds will be howling 25 - 35 mph ... as Cold, Dry Arctic air spills across Texoma. Actual High temperatures will struggle to reach 37 and the Wind Chill will make it feel like Freezing, 32 degrees all day long.
Overnight into Friday … when the Sunsets we will quickly plunge below freezing and remain below freezing for 8 to 12 hours. Exposed Pipes will need to be protected and pets will need a warm place indoors. It will be a Clear, Calm and Cold night with morning lows near 21 degrees.
Friday … another Sunny but cold day. Winds will turn South by morning 10-15 mph. After a freezing cold start we will warm nicely to Afternoon Highs near 41.
So this weekend … Bundle Up … Shop Local and visit the Hardware Store if needed, so you can be prepared for the Hard Freeze and Windy Arctic Cold later this week.
