10:00 am Saturday – July 23rd, 2016
Friday was the hottest day of 2016 so far. Most of Texoma reached 100 degrees. Saturday will be even Hotter ! Triple Digit Heat and High Humidity will make it Dangerously Hot. So plan today to schedule regular air conditioned breaks, continuously drink water and know the signs of both Heat Exhaustion and Heat Stroke. Finally, be prepared and willing to Call 911 as "Heat Stroke" is a Killer !
Today … Be Aware a “Heat Advisory” is in effect until 8:00 pm for temperatures that will affect your body … as if it was 103 -108 degrees. Under Sunny skies, winds will be from the South-Southwest 10-15 mph. Actual afternoon Highs in the shade will be near 101.
Tonight … skies will be Clear and Warm in the 80s & 90s with South breezes 2-6 mph. Morning Lows will only drop to be a muggy 78.
Sunday … winds swing to the South-Southeast 10-15 mph, increasing humidity, but also slowing our warm up. Afternoon Highs will be a tad cooler near 98 … but combined with humidity it will still feel like 103.
Monday … we’re Mostly Sunny to Partly Cloudy with a Scattered Showers and Storms. These slow moving heavy downpours will have the potential for high gusty, 40 to 60 mph and localized flash flooding. Afternoon Highs will be cooler near 95 with winds from the Southeast 10-15 mph.
Tuesday ... a 20% chance of isolated Showers and Storms. Winds will be turning South-Southeast 10-15 mph as Highs warm a degree to 96, under partly Cloudy Skies.
Wednesday … winds swing to a drier and warmer South-Southwest direction 10-15 mph as the Upper Air High Pressure drifts further west over Arizona. Skies will be Partly Cloudy and after morning Lows near 75 afternoon Highs will jump to 98.
Thursday … with the Dome of High Pressure to our west this opens the door to more Isolated Showers and Storms from an approaching disturbance. Winds will be warm from the Southwest 10-15 mph. Because of the Partly Cloudy skies and potential showers … afternoon Highs will be a degree cooler near 97.
Friday … the Upper Air Trough arrives providing Lift to the unstable hot and humid air over Texoma. More showers and storms are likely. These storms could be strong to severe with gusty winds and periods of heavy rain. Winds will continue warm from the Southwest 10-15 mph as afternoon Highs struggle to reach 95 in the rain cooled air.
As always … Help Save A Young Life … please remember to please pass the word … Do Not Leave Pets or Children in the Car … with Temps pushing the upper 90s to 100 this week … Cars will heat up to 135 degrees or hotter in less than 15-25 minutes ... Parked Cars will be Death Traps ! Do a back seat “Double Check”, so no one is left behind when parking your car.
