Windy Tomorrow; Storms in the Fri-Sat Forecast 5:00 p.m. Tuesday 30 June 2015
June 2015 is ending on a seasonably hot and humid note for Texoma with Tuesday’s observed highs in the low to mid-90s; it should be a mostly clear and warm night with lows in the lower 70s.
The weak frontal boundary that helped to produce scattered thunderstorms last night is located south of McKinney, so there’s only a slight chance of a thunderstorm south of the Red River before 10 p.m. and dry after that.
July should begin hot and humid; it will be quite windy the next few days as the surface pressure field tightens. Temperatures will run about the same Wed-Thu as they have the past couple of days, in the low to mid-90s.
Thunderstorms are hanging tough in the forecast for Fri-Sat as a surface frontal zone and mid-level trough create an unstable environment. Given the very moist atmosphere, very heavy rainfall of up to three inches is possible in isolated locations, with one to two inches more typical. This should not cause major flood issues but localized flooding of roadways and the like are quite possible.
The storm threat ends by Sunday morning as the front dissipates and the trough moves away. It’s back to hot and humid for next week.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Isolated storms south of Red River through 10 p.m., clear and warm….Lows 70 to 74 Wednesday: Sunny, Windy and Hot…..Highs 93 to 96 Thursday: 30% Storms, Windy and Hot…..74/95 Friday: 50% Thunderstorms…..70/90 Saturday: 40% Thunderstorms …..70/90 Sunday: 20% Storms A.M.…..74/92 Monday: Sunny, Windy…..74/95 Tuesday: Sunny, Windy…..74/95
