LAWTON, Okla. (TNN) -
By daybreak this morning, expect temperatures to dip into the upper 30s for most, if not all. Winds are fairly light and will remain that way all day only around 5 to 10mph out of the north. Highs this afternoon will rise into mid and upper 40s. More cloud cover is expected today compared to sunshine.
Tonight will stay quiet and dry with overnight lows dropping into the upper 20s and low 30s by daybreak tomorrow. As our next big weather maker will arrive over the weekend but it won’t impact the entirety of it so here are the details:
The day tomorrow will stay dry but cloudy. Highs only in the mid to upper 40s with light east winds. As the system dives southwest it’ll bring a colder airmass in place plus overall precipitation chances. While the forecast is slightly becoming clearer with how things should play out there’s still some uncertainty.
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 one but it does seem like there could be slight more impacts than initially thinking to those north and east of the viewing area.
Highest impacts still look to be south and west of the Seymour/ Crowell line. A mix as the system starts a wintry mix is likely but the overall profile of the atmosphere supports mainly snow showers for this event.
A mid-week warm up will occur.. highs rising into the mid and upper 50s (maybe a few low 60s) but it’ll be very short lived with reinforcing cold fronts in the latter half of the week/ into the weekend.
This forecast will evolved and change as we get closer to the system. Stay weather aware and up-to-date with the forecast by downloading the First Alert 7 Weather App.
Have a great day and a better weekend!
