Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Norman OK
731 PM CST Tue Jan 24 2017

.UPDATE...
Allowed the Red Flag Warning expire. Cancelled the Wind Advisory
before 7 pm. Added a slight chance of rain and snow showers in far
northern Harper county this evening. Adjusted hourly weather grids
tonight to account for the cold front and resulting temperatures
and winds.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
A dry cold front will continue to move through Oklahoma and north
Texas tonight.

Surface winds and temperatures have decreased while surface
humidity values have increased over the past few hours. Thus
allowed the fire weather and wind headlines end across the area.
The cold front was near a Cheyenne to Perry line as of 730 pm and
will continue to push south tonight. Latest HRRR runs have a
decent handle of this front, though may be a bit too slow with
the southward progression of this front. The front should be south
of the forecast area (including Henrietta Texas and Durant
Oklahoma) by 3 am tonight.

Latest radars indicated a few light returns over southwestern
Kansas which may skirt far northern Harper county. Based on RAP13
model soundings, this precipitation would be reaching the ground
as either light rain and/or light snow. Added 20% chance of this
precipitation in northern Harper county this evening.

Otherwise, quiet and cooler weather will continue tonight.
Forecast lows tonight appeared to be on track.

Products have been updated.
