Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Norman OK
935 AM CDT SAT JUL 30 2016

This morning, mid to high cloudiness resulted in mostly cloudy to
overcast skies across the western two thirds of Oklahoma and
western north Texas. A thunderstorm complex originating from the
Texas Panhandle had advanced across western Oklahoma and far
western north Texas. A few of the storms were strong, with 30 to
40 mph wind gusts, frequent lightning, and locally heavy rainfall
of 1 to 1.5 inches at a few locations. Temperatures had fallen
into the upper 60s under the storms across our west, with lows in
the lower to mid 70s across the remainder of our region. Although
a weak warm front across our south had lifted to near I-40, the
winds were generally light and variable on both sides of the
boundary. However, the outflow from the storms had produced some
brief strong wind gusts across our west. Just after sunrise, the
showers and thunderstorms had moved into central Oklahoma, mainly
affecting the northern portions Oklahoma City metro as well as to
the north.

By 930 am, showers and thunderstorms continued across
northcentral Oklahoma, extending north of Oklahoma City to the
Kansas state line. Outside of the storms, the skies were partly
sunny across southwest Oklahoma, to mostly sunny across southeast
Oklahoma and western north Texas. The temperatures had so far
warmed into the lower to mid 80s under the sun, while cloudiness
was keeping temperatures mild in the mid 70s across the rest of
our region. The warm front had stalled out across central
Oklahoma, with southerly winds at 5 to 10 mph behind the front,
and generally east winds at 5 to 10 mph ahead of the front.
