Heating up Today-Sat…Heat Advisories Posted Thursday 24, July 2014 5:00 AM
After Wednesday’s showers and thunderstorms in eastern Texoma, weather should be quieter today as the upper level ridge of high pressure builds eastward into Texoma the next few days. Heat Advisory has been expanded to all of Texoma until Friday 7 pm as heat index may reach 104-108 today and into the weekend. Good news is that an upper level low pressure system looks to move out of the Northern Rockies this weekend pushing a strong cold front our way. The front will give us a chance of rain and thunderstorms and cooler temperatures most of next week.
