Labor Day has many meanings in society today. To some it is a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country; to others it is the “last weekend of Summer”; and to some it is just another day.
This year, no matter what the day is to you, I am looking at a sunny, hot, humid, but enjoyable day.
Heat Index values will be climbing into the triple digits while winds remain out of the south, continuing to bring in moisture.
Considering the amount of humidity in Texoma and temperatures climbing into the upper 90s today, it is possible for some showers to pop up this afternoon into evening time-frame.
I’ve been talking about a cold front coming in for several days and it is just around the corner.
Today, the cold front and low pressure system remain in the Kansas area. As this moves closer to us, our rain chances increase allowing us to get some rain and hopefully help with the drought conditions.
Keep umbrellas handy for this upcoming work week, as rain chances stick around. As of now, rain totals throughout Texoma will range from 0.5-1.00". Behind the front, temperatures will be much cooler with highs in the low 80s by next weekend!
