UPDATE: 9:10 p.m. There could be some scattered clouds on Saturday; otherwise no changes to the forecast. Have a great night - Steve ==========================
FREEZE WARNING for all of Texoma: Tonight 4:50 p.m. Fri 31 October 2014
Friday’s gusty winds ease to near-calm conditions overnight; bone dry air and clear skies will allow for rapid cooling and most locations will already be in the 30s before midnight. This will be the coldest night so far this fall season.
You may want to protect tender plants overnight as it looks like southern Oklahoma could see some mid to upper 20s with north Texas minimums between 29 and 32 degrees.
The surface air flow returns to the south on Saturday and winds pick up somewhat during the day, and even more so on Sunday. This will funnel low-level moisture northward by Monday morning. Meanwhile, a deep trough passes over the Rockies this weekend and approaches Texoma Monday night-Tuesday; locally heavy rainfall is expected as the trough and ribbon of moisture meet.
Rainfall potential is in the multi-inch range, 2 to 4 inches, for the precipitation event next week.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Clear and Cold, Freezes Likely….Lows 26 to 33 Saturday: Sunny to Partly Cloudy, Breezy P.M.…..Highs 59 east to 64 west Sunday: Mostly Sunny, Windy…..36/67 Monday: 30% Thunderstorms (Late), Windy…..53/70 Tuesday: 80% Thunderstorms.…..60/68 Wednesday: 30% Rain A.M……46/64 Thursday: Sunny…50/71 Friday: Mostly Sunny…..48/99
May You Have A Safe and Fun Weekend!
