The Weather Matches the Equinox... 9:45 p.m. Mon 22 Sep 2014
The Autumnal Equinox took place at 9:29 p.m. Monday evening, the weather is right on target for the first morning of fall on Tuesday: Clear skies, dry air and temperatures in the 50s. Nice!
The pattern for much of this week will feature mostly clear, pleasantly cool nights, sunny to partly cloudy warm days and fairly low relative humidity keeping it comfortable.
A weakness in the upper atmosphere and up-slope flow from easterly winds may allow for some thunderstorms to show up over western and central Oklahoma mid-week. It looks like upper level high pressure and dry low-level air would keep that activity to our north and west. So, I see no significant chance of precipitation from now through Saturday for Texoma.
