UPDATE: 10:10 p.m.
I raised Monday's rain chance to 40% based on the latest trajectory for an upper level wave that passes on Monday. Otherwise, no changes. Have a great weekend and be safe - Steve
A Hot and Dry Weekend; Rain by Monday
5:00 p.m. Friday 22 July 2016
Friday saw the hottest temperatures year-to-date for many Texoma locations. One-hundred plus maximum temperatures were common, with Antlers reaching 102 for the highest in our area. Hugo hit 101; Sherman, Ardmore, Paris, Bonham, Durant, Atoka and Ada all reached 100 degrees.
Saturday will be similar to today with not much wind and highs around 100, by Sunday we start to back off of the heat a bit as surface winds turn southeastward and the upper high which helped bring the heat moves westward. A weak upper low is rotating through the eastern branch of the upper high, this feature will begin to track westward and through Texoma skies on Monday. A chance of rain goes into the forecast at that time.
A second rain-maker comes from a different direction later next week, a mid-level trough passing Thu-Fri from northwest to southeast offers another shot of precipitation for Texoma. More good news: next week won’t be as hot as it was this week.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Mostly Clear…..Lows 75 to 79
Saturday: Sunny…..Highs around 100
Sunday: Mostly sunny…..78/98
Monday: 40% Showers/storms…..76/95
Tuesday: 20% Showers/storms…..74/96
Wednesday: Partly cloudy …..75/98
Thursday: 20% Showers/storms …..76/97
Friday: 40% Showers/storms…..76/95
