I lowered the Friday morning minimums by a few degrees based on the latest trajectory of the expected drier air, otherwise no changes to the forecast. Have a great night - Steve
Front Arrives Wed-Thu; Weekend Looks Dry
5:00 p.m. Monday 29 August 2016
Texoma saw widely scattered thunderstorms on your Monday driven by daytime heating with heavy downpours and lightning. The overnight forecast is rain-free with mostly clear skies, lows around 70 and very light winds from the east to northeast.
We will have a few more thunderstorms around tomorrow; the chance of any one point receiving rain is about 20 percent. Winds will continue light from the east and northeast.
A fairly strong high-pressure cell for late August will press a cold front into Texoma late Wednesday into Thursday; this will boost rain chances a bit, but since the low-level wind flow ahead of the front will be from the east, the available moisture will be somewhat lower. This means widespread heavy rainfall is less likely than with last week’s Friday system.
It looks like the precipitation would end before the ball games Friday night, leaving us with dry weather for Saturday and Sunday. This, as drier air filters in for the Labor Day weekend with mild overnight lows in the 60s and seasonable daytime highs in the 90-degree range.
My first stab at the Labor Day forecast suggests only a low-end rain chance at 20 percent. I’m basing this on a moist tap re-developing from the Gulf along with daytime heating.
Here are the numbers:
Overnight: Mostly clear…Lows 68 to 72
Tuesday: 20% Thunderstorms….Highs 92 to 95
Wednesday: 40% Thunderstorms …..72/93
Thursday: 40% Thunderstorms …..70/89
Friday: 20% Showers…..65/89
Saturday: Mostly sunny …..68/91
Sunday: Mostly sunny ….71/92
Monday: Windy, 20% Showers…..74/92
