Our Friday morning has been off to a quiet start, with temperatures in the 60′s and 70′s. As weak high pressure remains in place, expect another late Summer day for Texoma.

Water vapor imagery shows a big slot of dry air extending across the southern U.S. in the mid-levels, this will keep our skies rain-free through Monday. However, a cold front will begin to approach early next week and pass through Texoma Tuesday. At this point, rainfall looks fairly likely but with disappointingly low amounts. IN fact, it looks like most spots would get less than a quarter inch. Of course, this event is several days out and that projection might change.

For now, comparing two models, the GFS shows the cold front slipping through Tuesday with only a quick shot of light to moderate rain. The Euro model shows nearly identical conditions, so this won’t be nearly enough to moisten our very dry soils.

Our taste of Fall moves in from Wednesday onward, with highs int he lower to middle 80′s and lows in the middle to upper 50′s. Prefect weather to put you in the Fall spirit!

Here’s the seven day:

Today: Mostly Sunny skies

Saturday: Mostly Sunny skies

Sunday: Mostly sunny

Monday: Mostly sunny, windy

Tuesday: 20% Showers, cooler

Wednesday: Sunny and mild

Thursday: Sunny and mild
