Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Norman OK
914 PM CDT Wed Apr 25 2018

of a Cherokee to Oklahoma City to Madill line. Made small
adjustments to sky cover tonight.

.DISCUSSION...
A cool night can be expected tonight with clearing skies, light winds,
and surface high pressure overhead.

Added the fog mention based on latest mesonet observations
showing low surface dewpoint depressions, generally 6F or less
as of 9 pm. Also, latest HRRR runs have been hinting at the
possibility of fog in these areas, especially where little sunshine
occurred earlier today. Think fog will mainly be confined to low-
lying valleys and should not get widespread or too dense with
visibilities generally 1/2 to 3 miles. Any fog will quickly
dissipate between 7 and 9 am Thursday morning.

Cannot rule out patchy frost in some locations, mainly rural
low-lying valleys across northern Oklahoma later tonight.
Think any frost will be very localized, so did not issue a
Frost Advisory, as lows should remain above 36F in most locations.

Lows tonight will remain on the cold side. Forecast lows
mainly in the upper 30s and lower 40s seem to be reasonable.
Daily record low temperatures for April 26 are 35F at Oklahoma City
set in 1907, 40F at Wichita Falls set in 1947, and 36F at Lawton set
in 1983. Don`t think these records will be broken, though readings
will be fairly close.
