TODAY: It's another mild start, thanks to high clouds and a steady SW wind...temp in the 40s with a few 50s. It'll really warm up again today, running nearly 20 degrees above the average high. It probably won't be as warm as yesterday's 78, which missed the record by two degrees. We'll see a partly to mostly cloudy sky, gusty SW wind 15-25mph.

It'll be cooler up in the Panhandle, because of a front edging south of I-40. It looks like this front will edge into our northeastern communities, so it'll be a little cooler here:


WEEKEND: The front will move through tonight, setting up a NE wind 10-18mph tomorrow, high temp in only the low-mid 50s, mostly cloudy sky.

An upper-level disturbance will move this way, increasing clouds and lift across the region. This may be enough for a few showers late Saturday into Sunday. It'd be cold enough to support snow or a wintry mix. The lift won't be too strong and moisture is limited, so it is just a slight chance for precip. Amounts generally look light, though a few computers show the potential for some accumulating snow over the Rolling Plains into Oklahoma. We'll watch these trends today and tomorrow...but amounts look light at this point.

NEXT WEEK: Another passing storm system will bring a slight chance for showers Tuesday, but the better chance will likely be east of here.

The clear sign we're getting is it'll stay cold next week, high in the 30s and 40s each day. Computers show another storm system bringing a better chance for precip by the end of the week. It's too far out to know if this will happen, but it's a welcome sign.


Have a great weekend. Rudy will have a full update to the forecast later today, Caitlin will have your updated forecast tomorrow.
