LAWTON, Okla. (TNN) - We can’t rule out an isolated shower or thunderstorm Wednesday evening but better rain chances come Thursday into Friday, when marginally strong thunderstorms are possible, especially Thursday evening. We’ve also added some rain chances after the weekend specifically Monday and Wednesday. Confidence is growing that, despite mostly sunny skies this weekend, high temperatures will be closer to 90 degrees instead of 100 degrees thanks to a cold front turning our winds northerly. Under mostly sunny skies, temperatures climbed to the mid-90s this afternoon, and thanks to the humidity from recent rains, ‘feels like’ temperatures were in the triple digits across Texoma.
Any thunderstorms that develop in the region Thursday afternoon and evening could produce hail and high winds along with torrential, blinding rainfall. We’ll probably see some hit and miss showers and thunderstorms on Friday as well before rain chances fall to the slim category by the weekend. High temperatures will be consistently near 90° for the second half of the 7-day forecast.
