.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 242 AM CST Sat Jan 13 2018/

DISCUSSION...
Oklahoma will remain in strong northerly flow aloft while the
long-wave trough and low pressure remain positioned from Hudson
Bay and the Great Lakes into the southern plains. The result of
this will be several cold airmass moving across. The first is
moving in now and will bring a colder day today than on Friday.
Mid and high clouds associated with its arrival should mostly stay
to the northeast of central and western Oklahoma. This airmass
will drift to the east and allow for warmer conditions Sunday
before the arrival of another cold front on Monday. The following
air mass will be colder making next Tuesday the coldest day of the
next week. Single digits north and teens south across Oklahoma
are expected Tuesday and Wednesday morning. There is a low chance
for light snow in southeastern Oklahoma with the associated trough
passage on Tuesday. A strong warming trend begins Wednesday when
the long-wave trough moves off the Atlantic coast and a weak upper
ridge follows across the center of the continent. A small,
transient upper low is forecast to cross over Oklahoma Thursday.
Moisture will be limited and forcing weak, but a slight chance for
rain/snow exists for southeastern Oklahoma then. By the weekend,
daytime temperatures in the 50s and 60s are expected.
