Windy, Hot Weather Moves in; Front Brings Saturday Storms
5:00 p.m. Wednesday 24 May 2017
Wednesday’s sunny daytime weather gives way to a pleasant night with clear skies lows in the 50s, and light winds. It won’t be quite as cool as last night since winds will become light southeast before sunrise.
The pattern turns very gusty tomorrow as the surface pressure field tightens up. Temperatures also rocket upward; well into the 80s Thursday, perhaps 90 in Ardmore and Gainesville, and into the low to mid 90s area wide Friday-Saturday. Also, get ready for a big surge of humid air Thursday night through Saturday.
The longer-range models continue to focus on a cold front arriving late Saturday, a surface dry line over west central Texas may also play a hand in making for a potentially severe weather event late Saturday afternoon and into the first part of Saturday night.
Lingering showers are possible Sunday just behind the front, but activity should be on the decrease, and the air in general should be considerably drier and more comfortable. Expect generally sunny skies and seasonably warm conditions on Memorial Day.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Clear and cool….Lows 50 to 56
Thursday: Windy, warmer….Highs 86 to 90
Friday: Partly cloudy, windy and hot…..72/94
Saturday and Saturday Evening: 50% Thunderstorms….74/92
Sunday: 30% Showers…..70/83
Memorial Day: Sunny…..63/86
Tuesday: Mostly sunny…..62/87
Wednesday: 20% Showers…..65/83
