Mostly clear skies persisted into the early morning hours across
eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas, however during the late
morning hours mid level clouds began to move into the eastern
portions of Oklahoma. Low temperatures this morning were cold,
getting into the single digits across portions of eastern Oklahoma
and teens in western Arkansas. By late morning temperatures had
almost reached the 30 degree mark across most portions of the area.
High temperatures today are forecast to reach the mid 30s and low
40s under partly cloudy skies.
High pressure will continue to build into the Southern Plains,
keeping conditions quiet and dry for the next few days. The area of
high pressure will shift east of the region late Saturday, turning
winds out of the south. This will help to warm temperatures for the
weekend. The next chance for precipitation will develop overnight
Saturday into Sunday.
Low temperatures on Saturday will be around the 20 degree mark.
During the afternoon hours southerly winds will increase in speed to
15 to 20 mph with higher gusts possible. Skies will be mostly sunny
which will allow temperatures to get up to the low to mid 40s.
