Alan Crone's Weather Blog: Some Showers With Cold Front On The Way

Posted: Updated:

TULSA, Oklahoma -

The rain started about 3 to 4 hours earlier than I anticipated yesterday evening, and consequently, the rain is ahead of schedule this morning across eastern OK compared to yesterday at this hour.   Some adjustments have been made to the precipitation forecast today.   The main impact will be to lower the chances for locations northwest of the metro for the day.   Some showers will still be possible in the Tulsa metro this morning, but the higher chances may end up across southeastern and east-central OK for the next few hours.

The cold front to our north will move across the area around midnight tonight with a narrow line of showers and storms across the region.    Most of the activity will be located across southeastern and east-central OK pre-dawn Saturday and will continue to move southeast away from the area by Saturday mid-morning.   If the timing is correct, most of the Friday evening activities should be mainly rain-free with the front not arriving until after Friday Night Football games.   We’ll need to keep a chance in the forecast for those games, but the front should arrive after the games. 

Highs today will be in the upper 70s north and some mid-70s south.   Mostly cloudy conditions will prevail until later this afternoon when a few sun-breaks will be likely.   Gusty south winds will remain at 10 to 25 mph for the day.   Temperatures will cool down behind the front for the weekend with morning lows in the upper 50s Saturday morning and the upper 40s Sunday morning.   Daytime highs this weekend will range from the upper 60s to the lower 70s.   I’ll keep a slight mention for a few showers Sunday, but the odds will be confined to far southeastern OK.

Weather Alerts

Monday and Tuesday we’ll be watching an old tropical system that may be ejecting into the Gulf of Mexico after crossing the Mexican plateau.  This surface low may track across east TX and into southwestern Arkansas Monday and Tuesday with rain confined in these areas.   This system may be close enough to support some showers and storms Tuesday across eastern OK but at this point the chance will remain low.   

A decent chunk of colder air will arrive sometime next week across the nation but I’m unsure how far south this cooler air will move before stalling.   We’ll plan for a very noticeable cool down Wednesday through the end of next week with lows in the 40s and 50s.   Highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s will be likely.

Thanks for reading the Friday morning weather discussion and blog.

Have a super great day!
