.DISCUSSION...
The front is moving more quickly than realized earlier during the
afternoon. Although a bit slow, the HRRR continues to have a good
forecast, and now it brings the cold front through Oklahoma City
about 1 AM. Forecast grids were updated with this wind shift
timing. Additionally, temperatures in the lower 20s are now
entering the southern half of Kansas on 10-15 kt and gusty north winds.
Hourly temperatures were accelerated downward, and early Thursday
morning minimum temperatures were lowered noticeably in northern
Oklahoma. Upper teens are expected along the northwest Oklahoma
border by Thursday morning. Forecasts for the Friday freezing rain
event remain unchanged.
