UPDATE: 10:40 p.m. No changes to the forecast. Have a great night - Steve ============================
Very Warm this Weekend 8:00 p.m. Thu 23 October 2014
Light rain this morning brought generally a tenth of an inch or less to Texoma with some locations getting no rain at all. This precipitation was the result of a passing mid-level wave; sinking air on the retreating side of the wave made for clearing skies west to east today.
Look for mostly clear skies overnight and through much of the weekend with well above-average temperatures. In fact, highs will be close to 90 degrees over the western half of Texoma on Saturday!
Winds will pick up dramatically on Sunday as low pressure deepens to our northwest, it will continue very warm Sunday followed by a gradual cooling trend Monday. A cold front passes Tuesday with a small chance of rain and cooler temperatures; a second front passing Thursday reinforces a cooler air mass into the first few days of November.
