Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Norman OK
905 AM CDT FRI JUL 29 2016

At midnight, the skies started out partly cloudy across the
western two thirds of Oklahoma and western north Texas. However
around 2 am, a thunderstorm complex across the central plains had
advanced into northern Oklahoma, eventually moving into central
Oklahoma and the Oklahoma City metro by 7 am. Heavy rain, frequent
lightning, and strong to marginally severe winds gusts were
associated with the storms, with 40 to 60 mph wind gusts. The
heaviest rainfall of over 2 inches had occurred across far
northern Oklahoma, with 2.54 inches measured at the Cherokee
mesonet site. The rain had resulted in low temperatures in the
mid to upper 60s across central and northern Oklahoma, while the
remainder of our south had fallen into the lower 70s. Although
the storms had produced an outflow boundary with brief strong
wind gusts, the winds had generally stayed light and variable
across our region.

By 9 am, the skies were mostly sunny for the moment across
southeast Oklahoma and western north Texas, to overcast across the
remainder of our region. Showers with isolated thunderstorms
continued across portions of central and western Oklahoma, and
widespread light rain falling across northern Oklahoma, with
temperatures in the upper 60s. The temperatures across our
remaining dry south had already warmed into the upper 70s to 80
degrees. The storm outflow boundary of strong gusty winds was
advancing into southeast Oklahoma, while winds across the
remainder of our region were variable in direction at 10 to 20
mph.
