Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Norman OK
901 AM CDT FRI AUG 26 2016

This morning, low to mid cloudiness kept the skies mostly cloudy
to overcast across the western two thirds of Oklahoma and western
north Texas. Widespread showers and thunderstorms had developed
behind a slow moving cold front much of northern and western
Oklahoma. The heaviest rain accumulations since midnight were
across westcentral Oklahoma, with just over 1 inch measured at
mesonet sites in Kingfisher and Watonga, with radar estimates
between 2 to 3 inches just north of Hennessey. Humid air in place
across southeast Oklahoma kept morning lows in the lower 70s
there, while slightly drier air to the west resulted in lows in
the mid to upper 60s across the remainder of our region. The winds
were generally out of the north behind the cold front, with
southeast winds ahead of the front with windspeeds at 5 to 10 mph.

By 9 am, both northwest and southeast Oklahoma had partly sunny
skies, to mostly sunny skies across the rest of our region.  The
temperatures had so far warmed into the lower 70s. The winds were
variable in direction at 5 to 10 mph.
