Thunderstorms, Heavy Rainfall Possible Fri-Sat 5:40 p.m. Wednesday 1 July 2015
July began hot and humid in Texoma with highs in the 90s and Heat Indexes around 100. The primary change since Tuesday was much stronger wind from the south-southwest; these will continue on Thursday.
A series of weak waves in the upper atmosphere will begin to destabilize the atmosphere Thursday; there’s a small chance of a morning shower, but activity increases in coverage and intensity late in the day. The greatest coverage of showers and thunderstorms is expected Friday and Saturday. A frontal zone to our north will serve as a starting point for several rounds of rain which will then move into Texoma on the heels of northwesterly steering winds.
Locally heavy rainfall of up to three inches can be expected during the Fri-Sat period; rain chances dwindle on Sunday followed by hot and humid weather for next week with no rain indicated…at least right now.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: 20% Showers north of the Red River A.M….Lows 72 to 75 Thursday: 40% Storms Late, Windy and Hot…..Highs 90 to 94 Friday: 60% Thunderstorms…..70/87 Saturday: 60% Thunderstorms …..68/89 Sunday: 20% Storms A.M.…..71/91 Monday: Sunny, Windy…..74/96 Tuesday: Sunny, Windy…..74/95 Wednesday: Sunny, Windy…..74/95
