.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 932 PM CST Sun Dec 10 2017/

DISCUSSION...
Temperatures this evening are quite variable across the area,
with some areas already in the lower 30s, and others still in the
upper 40s to lower 50s. The differences are due to elevation and
whether winds have dropped off at those sites.

Temperatures tomorrow will again be above normal, by 15 to 20
degrees in some locations. Latest guidance shows it will be
particularly warm down across southeast Oklahoma where lower 70s
are expected. We should stay several degrees below record highs,
as most of those records are in the low to mid 70s for Monday.

Fire weather will be a definite concern tomorrow with expected RH
values below 20 percent, and gusty west winds. Latest data
suggest that winds will be just below Red Flag criteria but later
shifts will evaluate overnight. The wind shift associated with
the cold front will be a potential problem for fire suppression
efforts. Fire Weather watch remains in effect for a few counties
in northeast Oklahoma for Monday.
