Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Tulsa OK
540 PM CST Mon Jan 22 2018

Strong and gusty westerly winds continue late this afternoon with low
SC deck on backside of departing upper low, currently lifting northeast
into far NE MO. Low clouds will begin to clear this evening with winds
slowly subsiding overnight. Otherwise, VFR conditions expected through
the forecast period.


.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 300 PM CST Mon Jan 22 2018/

Windy conditions will continue across eastern Oklahoma and into
western Arkansas through the rest of the afternoon, with west to
northwest winds diminishing some into the evening. Gusts to 35 mph
may continue for a few hours during the evening across northwest
Arkansas, especially in the higher terrain. Wraparound cloud cover
will also decrease from west to east overnight, with Tuesday
likely to feature sunny skies in most spots.

Fairly quiet weather will prevail through much of this work week,
as temperatures remain near to above normal and dry conditions
prevail. A weak boundary will push through the area late tomorrow
and into tomorrow night. Southerly winds make a return late Wednesday
as surface high pressure shifts into the Mississippi Valley,
leading to a warm up to end the week. Moisture will increase some
in response to the southerly winds, as well, which could lead to
some rainfall as the next storm system moves through the area
Friday into Saturday. Parts of southeast Oklahoma and western
Arkansas again appear most likely to receive the highest rainfall
totals. Significant weather does not look likely with this

Cooler and drier weather will arrive behind this system to close
out the weekend, especially when it comes to overnight lows.


OK...Wind Advisory until 6 PM CST this evening for OKZ054-055-059-060-
