Alan Crone's Weather Blog: Rain & Cooler Temps Ahead

Posted: Updated:

TULSA, Oklahoma -

Temperatures are chilly this morning with many locations reporting lower to mid-40s across extreme northeastern OK.   Locations along the I-40 corridor region are in the mid to upper 40s.   A weak boundary has made an appearance across northern OK this morning.   We’ll reside on the cool side of the boundary for the day.   This means afternoon highs will stay in the lower to mid-60s north and the upper 60s south.   The main focus of the forecast continues to be increasing rain chances Friday through early Saturday.   Pockets of moderate to heavy rainfall will be possible in some locations across southern or central OK before this system moves eastward Saturday morning.   A warming trend is expected for most of next week.

The main upper level trough remains west of the state this morning.   A disturbance is expected to round the base of this system tonight and this will begin to produce showers and storms across western areas of Texas this evening.   Friday morning showers and storms are expected to rapidly develop across part of southwestern OK and expand northeastward during the day.   Most data now support the arrival time of Friday morning to midday.   If so, Friday’s highs may stay in the mid to upper 50s under cloudy and wet conditions.   No severe weather is expected across northeastern OK with this system but pockets of moderate to heavy rainfall will be likely Friday afternoon and evening across part of southern OK and north TX.   The potential for some pockets of flooding rainfall should reside along the I-35 corridor region near OKC southwestward.   A few strong to severe storms will be possible across central TX but this threat will remain well removed from Oklahoma.   Friday Night Football appears wet.    Friday Night games will start and finish in the mid-50s with rain likely.

Rain should persist through the early hours of Saturday before moving eastward by midday to afternoon.   If this timing is correct, light rain will impact the Tulsa Run Saturday morning with temperatures in the mid-50s , but should be moving eastward by midmorning.  Precip should be gone for most Halloween and Fall Family Festival activities Saturday evening.  

  This is the “time change “weekend.   Roll those clocks back one hour before retiring Saturday night.

The overall pattern supports a warming trend for most of next week.   We don’t see any major cold air intrusions for at least the next week.   We may have another round of storms late next week.  And the upper air pattern from the southwest may bring some strong to severe storm chances into the state late next week. 

We’ll continue to refine the timing for this next weather system.   Please check the forecast often for updates.

Thanks for reading the Thursday morning weather discussion and blog.

Have a super great day!
