Rain gradually tapered off this afternoon with only a few heavy downpours across parts of northern and eastern Texoma. Meanwhile the Front and Low pressure system drifted east into the Ark-La-Tex. Winds were light NE 5-10 mph and roads slowly dried out late Sunday afternoon.
Flooding Threat continues Tonight … as flood waters continue to rise with roadside ditches, streams and creeks over bank-full. The Blue River near Blue in Bryan County will crest today 9 feet above flood stage, inundating blocks of local nearby roads. Avoid driving through flooded roadways and be on the lookout for roads damaged by the flood waters. Turn Around, Don't Drown.
Overnight … plan on Drizzle, light rain showers reducing visibility … and reducing traction. Morning lows will be near 65.
Monday winds turn a warmer from the South. But there will still be some chance of rain both Monday & Tuesday thanks in part to the saturated ground and a Late Tuesday Cold Front.
After a short warm up into the mid-80s, by Wednesday the Cold Front brings another chance of rain back into Texoma. That’s not good news after all of the rain we have received this weekend. On the up side the Front will usher in cooler temps in the upper 70s near 80 for the latter half of first week of Fall 2018.
