Thursday is a Weather Aware Day.
Scattered thunderstorms may produce locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds. Watch out for lightning...and move indoors if you hear thunder until the storm passes.
7 Day Forecast
UPDATE: 10:00 p.m. I will keep a 40% chance of storms overnight in the eastern half of Texoma and 30-40% for all areas Thursday; locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds are possible but general severe weather is not expected. Have a great night - Steve ==================================
Storms Possible Late Tonight, Thursday, and Sat-Sun 5 p.m. Wed 17 September 2014
A few thunderstorms popped up again Wednesday afternoon, but coverage was very limited. There’s a chance of late-night thunderstorms as a mid-level impulse tracks south-southwestward out of Arkansas; the potential for this to affect Texoma is highest east of I-35 late tonight.
We will continue with a chance of rain Thursday afternoon with a moist and unstable air mass and a weak remaining trough aloft. Highs will be near 90 with heat Index values in the mid-90s.
Rain drops out of the forecast for Friday, but a more potent system, the remnants of “Odile”, arrives for the weekend. There’s considerable uncertainty in the timing, but this system have a deep layer of moisture associated with it along with a very weak surface frontal passage Sunday,
I’m pegging the best weekend rain chances late Saturday and through Sunday.
