CONCERNING TAF SITES KTUL/KRVS/KBVO/KMLC/KXNA/KFYV/KFSM/KROG.
VFR conditions should prevail through the period. Scattered
showers/isolated storms currently across NE OK near the KS border
will continue to push to the southeast today as cold front near
the I-40 corridor also pushes south. Rain is light enough that
both vsbys and cigs in the showers have remained VFR, a trend that
should continue. Depending on how much rain falls at each
individual terminal, fog could develop toward Saturday morning as
skies clear and winds drop off. Picking out which sites will be
affected is difficult at this time, with the chance at any one
site currently below mentionable levels.
.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 257 AM CDT FRI OCT 9 2015/
Cold front pushing through Northeast Oklahoma early this morning,
currently located near a Jennings...Tulsa...Jay line. Scattered
showers with a few embedded thunderstorms will continue behind the
front this morning as boundary moves south of the Red river by
Mild/dry conditions expected behind the front into Saturday as
surface high pressure builds across the region. Significant warm
up expected on Sunday as upper ridge moves back into the area with
south/southwest winds developing.
Another cold front will push through on Monday in response to an
upper trough moving into the Great Lakes region. Limited moisture
return ahead of front will keep precipitation chances low.
Warming trend expected into the middle part of next week with high
temperatures above normal. It will still feel more like fall as
humidities remain low each afternoon with overnight lows dropping
off into the 50s over most areas.
