Cool Tonight, Fine Weather for Friday, Severe Threat Sat-Sun 5:00 p.m. Thu 24 April 2014
A cold front passed through Texoma Thursday accompanied by a mid-level trough and very gusty winds. A stable air mass takes over with a clear cool night and wind dropping to less than 10 mph. We can look forward to a sunny and warm Friday, and with low relative humidity it will be quite comfortable.
The latest model runs continue pointing to a late Saturday night/Sunday severe weather episode; wind shear will be very high and even an overnight event could contain some dangerous weather. Plus, the timing can change right up to within hours of the event, so the threat for severe weather continues for Saturday night and Sunday.
Be sure and check out my latest blog for a detailed daily map update on the evolving scenario.
