Dick Faurot's Weather Blog: Another Round Of Rain

Posted: Updated:

As you can see from the rainfall totals so far today, courtesy of the OK Mesonet, some folks have received some decent rainfall and others have largely missed out.

However, we are not done with our rain chances as there will be another round of showers moving in from the west late Thursday, through the overnight hours, and then ending from the west Friday morning.

As you can see from the 2 day QPF map, some portions of the state could receive another inch or so, particular for the more southern and western counties. Sure hope those projections verify as the western counties could certainly use the moisture.

The cloudy skies and occasional rain/drizzle/showers certainly held temperatures down today. The third map is the max/min temperatures for the day, courtesy of the OK Mesonet. Much the same is expected again on Thursday as we will be overcast all day long with some patchy drizzle or a few showers.

Not much in the way of measurable rainfall is anticipated until tomorrow night when the more organized area of rain will be moving across the area. There may even be some thunder in the far southern counties along the Red River.

Spring arrives according to the calendar on Friday and, although little or no sunshine is expected, at least the shower activity should have moved on eastward by that afternoon. That should allow temperatures to rebound into the 60s which, together with light winds, will make for a relatively pleasant first day of spring.

As this next system moves on eastward, it appears it will not be strong enough to scour out the moisture on the back side for our weekend. That creates additional challenges regarding how warm temperatures will be during the day, as any sunshine at all at this time of year and temperatures can really soar.

However, since it appears we will have mostly cloudy skies as a general rule, have opted to be fairly conservative in that regard. Also, our winds will be primarily from a more E or SE component which also is not a particularly warm wind for us.

However, as we go into next week, a more S or perhaps even SW wind should result in warmer temperatures so have upped the daytime highs accordingly. Also, there will be additional chances of showers and perhaps even some thunder going into next week.

So, stay tuned and check back for updates.
