UPDATE: 9:30 p.m. The severe weather threat is winding down; rain ends overnight. Clouds may be a little slow to clear Saturday morning so I've lowered highs a couple of degrees. Have a great weekend - Steve =============================================
Heavy/Severe Storms Overnight, Pleasant Weekend Skies 7:00 p.m. Friday 29 April 2016
A threat for hail, flooding and damaging winds will continue through about midnight, and a tornado or two cannot be ruled out either. Please remember that all four of Tuesday’s tornadoes occurred at night, and the atmospheric pattern is somewhat similar to what we had Tuesday, with the addition of a warm front which can further help “spin up” tornadoes.
A Pacific cold front arrives early Saturday and the storms will probably gather into a squall lie along it. The rain chance ends Saturday morning as a more stable air mass move in behind the front.
A small chance of rain enters the Tuesday forecast, but most of next week should be quite pleasant as an unseasonably strong trough in the east gives Texoma dry and mild weather.
Tonight: 80% Storms, heavy rainfall and severe weather….Lows near 60 Saturday: Becoming Sunny…..Highs 76 to 80 Sunday: Mostly sunny…..55/76 Monday: Mostly cloudy…..54/72 Tuesday: Partly cloudy…..50/75 Wednesday: Sunny Skies…..52/78 Thursday: Sunny…..57/84 Friday: Sunny…..61/85
