UPDATE: 10:15 p.m. No changes to the forecast- rain late tonight and into Saturday; ending Saturday afternoon followed by DRY weather for a change! Take Care - Steve ==============
Last Night of Rain for a While; Flash Flood Watches Continue 6:45 p.m. Fri 29 May 2015
A Flash Flood Watch continues for all of Texoma into Saturday.
A cold front will advance from northwest to southeast across the Red River Valley overnight and into Saturday; a deep layer of moisture, a passing mid-level trough (the last one for a while!) and the front will interact to produce rain and thunderstorms, some with flood potential.
Rainfall will range from less than an inch to as much as three inches.
Drier air moves in behind the front with northerly winds, and storms wind down in the morning with just a few showers or storms possible into the afternoon. No rain is in the forecast for Saturday night or Sunday! Dry weather is in my forecast…that’s right…NO RAIN…from Sunday well into next week. In the meantime, turn around, don’t drown; be alert to damaged/flooded roadways and rising creeks. Here are the numbers:
Tonight: 80% Storms, Flash Flooding…..Lows 60 north to 65 south Saturday: Storms in the morning, gradually ending during the afternoon…..Highs 74 to 78 Sunday: Partly Cloudy …..58/79 Monday: Mostly Sunny…..58/81 Tuesday: Mostly Sunny …..61/85 Wednesday: Mostly Sunny …..64/86 Thursday: Partly Cloudy …..67/86 Friday: ….. Partly Cloudy …..67/87
