It is a Weather Alert Day, High rainfall amounts are a concern leading to flooding. Be cautious on roads as puddling & ponding can lead to hydroplaning. Of course, if a road is completely covered in water, turn around don’t drown !
A flash flood watch is currently in effect and we will see up to 8 inches of rainfall once the rain wraps up, Sunday into Monday.
This morning the strong Cold Front pushed through Texoma, dropping temperatures. During the Afternoon Temps ranged from 34 degrees to the low 40s.
We will continue to cool into Saturday and we need to watch temperatures as Northwest Texoma will be flirting with the freezing line ... which with the continued rain can bring in periods of Mixed Precipitation including freezing rain and sleet.
Overnight, Saturday & Sunday ... will be simply Raw, with steady cold rain and wind gusts reaching 25 mph. Rain will be heavy at times with non-severe embedded thunderstorms continuing through the weekend. Dangerous Flash Flooding will be the main concern. It will be Breezy and Chilly both days with Highs in the upper 30s, warming into the mid-40s by Sunday.
Once we get to Monday … the rain will taper off by the morning and finally temperatures will warm up into the low 50s. Then we get to enjoy Sunshine all the way through Thursday.
Be safe this shopping weekend, Tom Hale Winter Weather Authority/News 12
