LAWTON, Oklahoma (KSWO) –
Mostly clear skies for tonight with a gradual return in low humidity. The overnight lows will fall in the low to mid 50’s and the wind will be from the southeast at 5-10 mph.
A few isolated showers and rumblings of thunder appear on Tuesday as isentropic upwelling occurs over a leftover border south of Texoma. Otherwise, hit & miss showers and storms are possible at any point in the day as a strong trough is approaching along with an associated dry line and cold front. Most models suggest that Texoma will quickly develop a series of strong to severe thunderstorms between 10pm and 11pm. Some embedded supercells are possible within the evolving line, and it will move west to east by early Wednesday morning. All types of storms are possible, including noxious gusts of 60 to 80 miles per hour, hail the size of golf balls, isolated tornadoes, and localized flooding. Please make sure you have multiple options for receiving weather warnings as the strongest storms are expected during the night hours.
The storms will subside as the morning progresses, with a few persistent showers possible in the afternoon and early evening hours. Hit & Miss showers / storms are still possible on Thursday.
A strong surge of cool air from the north will allow temperatures to drop to the low 70s by Friday afternoon, with the lows beginning the weekend in the top 30s and low 40s.
