In the Spring in Texoma, warm clear days, can turn stormy and violent in a matter of hours. Sunshine can be replaced by thunder and lightning, hail, high wind, or tornadoes.
Why is March through June such a turbulent time in Texoma? Thunderstorms can occur anytime of year, but the frequency of severe thunderstorms is highest in the spring. Warm, moist air streams into our area from the gulf. Hot, dry air comes in from Mexico. These air masses collide and air is forced to rise. At this time of year winter doesn't want to give up it's grip. So, cold, polar air still rushes through the central plains. It is channeled by the Rockies and heads straight toward Texoma.
