Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days for the potential of heavy rainfall. Severe weather is not expected but localized flooding is possible.
The expected position and movement of a mid-level trough now over the Rockies remains consistent from yesterday’s model output so it seems very likely we will get rain Wednesday into Thursday.
The areas getting the heaviest precipitation will be governed by the northward movement of a warm front and the track of the mid-level system. The numerical output (model) solutions have been consistent in giving the northern half of Texoma the most rain, but all areas should receive some. A small deviation in the position of the trough would shift the axis of greatest rainfall; for now it's safe to say we should all get some precipitation during these two days.
The system departs to the east and temperatures rise into the low to mid 90s over the weekend, just a couple of degrees below average for early August.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: 60% Rain North, West to 20% East…..Lows 68 to 71 Wednesday: Windy, 80% Thunderstorms…..Highs 78 west to 86 east Thursday: 60% Thunderstorms, ending W to E…..67/80 Friday: Partly Cloudy …..66/86 Saturday: Partly Cloudy …..68/90 Sunday: Mostly Sunny …..70/92 Monday: Mostly Sunny …..72/92 Tuesday: Mostly Sunny …..71/93
