Another breezy/windy day today with a bit of a tough temp
forecast as warm air continue to move north, along with quite a
bit of cloud cover. Many locations have seen temps rise overnight
and still appears that many locations will warm into the 50s and
60s even with said cloud cover. With the moisture streaming north
there still remains the possibility of some light drizzle across
far southeast Oklahoma this morning. Otherwise, a cold front will
enter northwest Oklahoma shortly after sunrise and move quickly
southeast across Oklahoma into north Texas during the day today.
Winds will diminish some ahead of the front and although are
expected to pick back up some behind the front, will not be
nearly as strong as what we have seen overnight.
Winds will diminish significantly tonight and with clearing
skies, temps will drop back into the 20s and 30s by Monday
morning. However a descent recovery expected during the day with
afternoon temps rebounding back into the 50s.
Another, reinforcing shot of even colder air will filter south
into the area Monday night and Tuesday and downward trend in
temps will continue through the middle of the week as even colder
air moves in by Wednesday. Could see some light rain or drizzle
across southeast Oklahoma on Wednesday.
Forecast continues to be a bit tricky for the end of the week
and next weekend, however models have come into a bit better
agreement for this time frame. Latest solutions would indicate
the possibility of some waa light rain and drizzle developing
Thursday and continuing into Friday ahead of developing west
coast trough. Models have also warmed things up a bit during the
time frame, limiting the potential for freezing precip. Have kept
some mention across the north Thursday night, but impacts should
be minimal. Significant piece of energy comes out into the plains
Saturday, but current model runs are much farther north keeping
us in warm sector until Saturday, when stronger cold front drops
south through the area. This also limits precip. Have therefore,
at this point, removed precip from the weekend periods.
