Mostly Outdoor-Friendly Weather this Weekend… 5:00 p.m. Thu 3 September 2015
Look for partly cloudy daytime skies as a surge of high-level moisture continues to stream through Texoma aloft; mostly clear overnight.
Low-level moisture will increase a bit as we get into the weekend, so hot and somewhat humid will be the order of the day. There’s a limited chance of rain on Friday as a weak disturbance rotates through in the upper atmosphere, but we’re talking very low potential, about 10 percent.
Surface winds turn a bit more to the south-southwest and the low-level air heats up Sunday-Monday, so daytime highs will move up a few clicks at that time. It will become a bit more humid over the weekend so Heat Index values will run 100 to 105; stay hydrated and take breaks during peak heating.
A frontal boundary and mid-level trough bears watching for a chance of rain Wednesday. This system looks to offer the best chance for widespread rainfall in some time…but it will probably be far less than what’s needed to put any serious dent in the drought.
