Area Forecast Discussion

.DISCUSSION...
The 12Z aviation discussion follows....

&&

.AVIATION...
A small area of low clouds (ceilings 800-1,000 ft) south and
southeast of KOKC at 11Z is unlikely to affect KOUN or KOKC before
it dissipates later this morning. Otherwise, generally clear
skies and light winds will be the rule. Winds will be mainly from
the north today, and south tonight. Some light or patchy fog may
form over the eastern half or so of Oklahoma early Monday morning.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 337 AM CDT Sun Oct 22 2017/

DISCUSSION...
The last of the rain associated with the departing storm complex
should end over our far southeast counties by about the time this
forecast takes effect (7 am). No additional rain is expected until
late this week when a little moisture return occurs between cold
fronts.

There will be minimal recovery from the cool airmass that is
currently spreading over the southern Plains before another cold
front sweeps south across Oklahoma and north Texas Monday and
Monday. That front will be followed by a couple of days of
persistent northerly flow. This will keep moisture levels low,
and precipitation is very unlikely.

Another cold front will arrive Thursday, bringing even cooler air
to the southern Plains. As its associated upper-level wave passes
over Oklahoma on Friday, some light rain will be possible.
Temperatures in this airmass may well be cold enough for frost or
freezing temperatures early Saturday across nearly all of
Oklahoma.
