.DISCUSSION...
Light showers are moving northeast out of central Oklahoma this
afternoon. A larger area of heavier showers and rain with a bit of
thunder is moving east across the central TX panhandle. This
second area is associated with the upper low over northern NM
that is expected to move quickly southeast along the Red River
early Sunday. Light rainfall is expected with the passage of this
system, particularly over the northern two-thirds or half of OK.
Amounts are expected to be less than about a third inch in most
places. This system will move quickly east, but bring an
associated surface low accompanied by large MSL pressure gradient
for a few hours after it passes. Winds overnight will be just
below wind advisory criteria for a short time, but still gusty
into late Sunday morning. Associated low clouds will clear quickly
by mid-day. The mid-winter heat wave in place the last several
days will intensify on Tuesday when temperatures in the upper 60s
and lower 70s are expected. Gusty west winds are expected
associated with strong mid-level flow and a storm passing to the
north of Oklahoma. Winds may be near advisory criteria in part of
western Oklahoma and relative humidity may lead to critical fire
weather potential Tuesday afternoon. Once this system passes, a
seasonably cool and dry airmass will reach into Oklahoma from the
central Rockies bringing rather stable weather for the rest of
next week.
