Fall officially begins in 4 hours at 2:50 am feeling damp and rainy as a cold front is heading for the Red River. Tonight we can expect scattered showers and light rain to continue to stream across Texoma in to the morning hours. Good news is the risk of severe weather has ended for now.
Overnight temps will be rain cooled and nearly steady, falling slightly to the dew point causing 100% humidity. Monday morning lows will be muggy and damp near 70.
For the first day of fall … no sooner than the cold front arrives along the Red River it stalls … as scattered showers continue on and off throughout the day. winds will be SSE 5-15 mph as afternoon highs reach 88.
Then Monday night into Tuesday the front turns around and retreats north as a warm fronts. Showers and rain will continue to form along the front as it heads north. Tuesday’s highs will again be near 88°.
By Wednesday as we continue to heat up it more like summer than Fall. As for the humidity the Gulf moisture tap is wide open. So with south winds all this week it will stay very muggy. Afternoon highs will remain in the low 90s.
Long term the weather models show the ridge of high pressure re-building late next week which may push us back into the low 90s Friday. So do not be disappointed that the first week of Fall 2019 starts off feeling more like summer.
