First Alert 7 Forecast

LAWTON, Okla. (TNN) -

Temperatures this morning are into the 30s and 40s but with winds between 10 to 20mph we’re feeling a bit cooler into the 20s and 30s. Our rain maker from yesterday will continue to move east and what will follow in it’s place will be a cool ridge of high pressure. This will allow for temperatures to stay near to below average for the remainder of the week. Today we’re looking at highs this afternoon in the upper 40s to low 50s. North winds at 10 to 20mph. Gusts in the low 20s will be at the highest in the morning and early afternoon hours.

By tonight winds will calm down to 10 to 15mph for the evening and around 5 to 10mph overnight. By daybreak tomorrow expect 20s and 30s for lows.

Expect highs in the mid to upper 40s with a general mix of sun and clouds heading into the weekend.

Alright... our next big winter storm will make it way to Texoma late Saturday night into Sunday morning. While trends are currently showing heaviest amounts well to our south, there’s still a few different scenariors on how things could play out:

Option 1: Center of the storm has a center-like track. The general impacts would be highest for those south of the Red River.

Option 2: Center of the storm tracks more north and east. This scenario would result in widespread impacts all across the viewing area. (AKA more snow)

Option 3: Center of the storm tracks south and west. This would mean little to no snow accumulations for Texoma.

Right now I’m going with option #1. It looks like highest impacts as of Thursday morning will be south and western counties receiving the highest accumulations and little to no impacts into central Oklahoma. Precipitation is trending cold enough for just snow showers but some wintry mixed precip can’t be ruled out.

After the system over the weekend, Sunday and early next week looks to be cool and seasonable.
