Another Beautiful Day Tomorrow
WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - Good evening Texoma! I hope you’ve been able to enjoy the wonderful, beautiful weather we’ve been experiencing! I also hope you’ve been able to keep your sinuses in good shape because I know many across Texoma are struggling with allergies with these very high pollen counts. Temperatures today are pleasant as they’re topping out in the upper-80s. Currently, wildfires are firing up across the Texas panhandle once again. We’re dealing with fire weather once again today and these conditions will last through Monday. Low relative humidity mixed with strong winds at 10-20 MPH increases the fire weather concerns. Despite the fire weather concerns, nice weather will be present through the next couple of days. Temperatures through the upcoming week will be in the mid-70s through the first half of the week. As we head into next weekend, temperatures will pull back as a cool front pushes through the area. Some chances for rain are possible as we head into the end of the week. For now, the rain chances are small on Thursday and Friday while the rest of the week remains dry.
