First Alert Forecast

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 40°
  • 34°

More rain and storms are expected overnight into early Saturday morning. 

Our temperatures are no longer below freezing, but additional rainfall will cause ponding on roads this afternoon and evening. We'll also be dealing with fog and light to locally heavy rain through the Friday evening commute. Make sure you give yourself extra time if you're traveling tonight. The highest chance for rain and storms for the remainder of our Friday will be confined across central and eastern Texoma.

We'll see a bit of a break in intensity into the wee hours Saturday morning, before another round of rain and storms move in between 3 and 4 am. Expect more locally heavy rain and some small hail and 60 mph winds with any storms that reach severe limits across Clay, Jack, and Montague Counties. The highest chance for severe weather will be confined to eastern Oklahoma and Arkansas. Additional rainfall of an inch will be possible for several of our western counties through 6 pm Saturday, prompting a flood watch for Jefferson, Clay, Montague, and Jack Counties. 

Temps warm into the mid 60s Saturday afternoon after storms clear out after lunchtime. Even more sunshine and 60s are on the way Sunday and Monday before another round of rain and storms make their way into Texoma on Tuesday. We hit the upper 60s Wednesday before another cold front brings us into the upper 50s Thursday with strong N winds.
