Rainy and Chilly Saturday; Continued Below Average Temps Next Week
5:00 p.m. Fri 20 April 2018
Moving into a late April weekend with typical highs in the mid to upper 70s, but Texoma will be “lost in the 50s” for daytime highs this Saturday…along with some locally heavy rainfall.
An upper low continues its steady eastward trek toward the Red River Valley, and rain seems inescapable at this point. It should be begin before sunrise west of I-35 and spread eastward; all areas should be getting rain by mid to late morning.
Locally heavy rainfall of a couple of inches is possible, but severe weather is expected to remain well south of Texoma. Expect lightning and possibly some small hail, dime size, within the strongest storm cores.
Warmer weather kicks in on Monday as highs return around 70…still below average for the last week of April. A weak front drifts in mid-week with a chance of rain on Wednesday. If you’re an optimist and want to go way out, the models agree that NEXT weekend should be dry.
