No changes to the forecast. Have a great weekend - Steve
A cold pattern through next week; rain on Tuesday with possible winter mix
5:00 p.m. Fri 15 Feb 2019
A new cold front surged southward during the day making for quite a range in afternoon temperatures, take for instance Ada and Paris. At 3 p.m., Paris registered a balmy 72 degrees ahead of the front while just 90 miles to the northwest Ada was at 36 degrees! Northerly winds push all of Texoma into the chill zone this evening and overnight and we will want to return to our heavy winter wear. Saturday morning lows will range from around 25 north to 32 southeast. Gusty north winds, at times up to 25 mph, will put wind chills into the upper teens overnight. Bundle Up!
Saturday sees lots of clouds to start the day, but some clearing is possible during the afternoon as low-level winds shift toward the southwest. It will be chilly with highs mainly in the 40s. Wind picks up (again) as a dry front passes early Sunday morning, ironically it will be warmer Sunday behind the front than ahead of it on Saturday due more sunshine and a “lag” in movement of the cold air southward.
It gets colder Monday as clouds begin to increase and the cold air deepens, a chilly rain is expected for much of Tuesday. Indications point to the potential of a wintry mix form Ada-Sulphur-Ardmore north and west, and just rain elsewhere, but surface temperatures are expected to remain a few degrees above freezing. Thus, travel problems will be mainly from wet roads as opposed to ice and snow.
