It would have been easy to forget it’s still winter with the record-breaking warmth we’ve had the past few weeks, but the last weekend of February will serve as a reminder. In fact, expect a freeze for most of Texoma Saturday morning, with frost possible in sheltered areas.
Saturday is expected to be a sun-filled day; dry air and light winds will make for cold start to Sunday as well. A passing upper trough and a strong inflow of Gulf moisture brings us our next chance of rain by late Sunday.
We get a quick warm-up on Tuesday ahead of a significant cold front which pushes temperatures downward for Wednesday and beyond. Moisture looks limited with the Tuesday system so I’m keeping rain chances at 20 percent for now. This will probably need to be adjusted one way or the other as we see how quickly Gulf flow resumes behind the weekend system.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Clear and cold….Lows 27 to 34
Saturday: Sunny skies….Highs 49 to 54
Sunday: Partly cloudy, windy, 20% rain late, 40% Sunday night…..34/62
Monday: 40% Showers or thunderstorms.…..50/73
Tuesday: 20% Showers or storms…..47/76
Wednesday: Partly cloudy…..45/60
Thursday: Mostly sunny…..35/66
