Dick Faurot's Weather Blog: Good Chance Of Rain, Turning Cooler

Posted: Updated:

A few spotty showers/storms popped up and quickly fell apart during the late afternoon hours today, but we have better chances of rain over the Tue/Wed time frame and potentially a good soaking for some locations. Notice the 3-day QPF map, for example, which suggests the possibility of around an inch or so for many of us, but local amounts may be higher.

The reason for this is a cool front that is expected to be moving across the state by Wednesday morning and pretty much out of the state by that afternoon. A few showers/storms will be possible for the more northern counties during the day Tuesday in advance of the cool front, followed by more widespread coverage overnight and into the morning hours of Wednesday. Cannot rule out a few storms becoming severe, with primarily a damaging wind threat for late Tuesday and into the day Wednesday, but by Thursday we should be back to mostly sunny skies.

Temperatures will certainly be impacted as well. Notice the max/min temperature map for today and, although it was certainly hot, at least there were no triple digits across the state. As you can see on our forecast page, the clouds and a few showers around should hold us into the 80s for Tuesday and we will likely be in the 60s for much of the day Wednesday before topping out in the low 70s that afternoon. Cloudy skies all day and a brisk northerly wind will provide those much cooler conditions.

Thursday morning will start off in the 50s and then back into the 80s that afternoon along with lots of sunshine. By the way, in case you are wondering, the projected daytime high on Wednesday will be in record territory and the morning low Thursday morning will also be close to record territory. Needless to say, a remarkable cool-down, particularly when compared to the upper 90s we had today here in Tulsa.

Another unsettled pattern will set in for the Fri-Sun time period with chances of showers/storms and possibly another weak front arriving during the day Sunday. Although temperatures will be warming back up, the clouds and possibility of showers should keep the numbers at or below normal; and mostly below normal at that.

Beyond that time frame, the 6-10-day outlook suggests the potential for temperatures to average below normal and perhaps a decent chance at some additional showers or storms.

So, stay tuned and check back for updates.
