Alan Crone's Weather Blog: Below Normal Temperatures Again

Posted: Updated:

TULSA, Oklahoma -

Cold temperatures have returned to eastern OK with lows in the lower 30s along with gusty northwest winds this morning.   Daytime highs will be below normal today with readings in the lower to mid-40s across eastern and southeastern OK.   Northwest wind should level-off at 10 to 15 mph for the majority of the day but winds will become light later tonight.  Some changes were noted in the model data this morning and I’ll make a few changes to the forecast.  

The strong winds will experienced yesterday are gone as the pressure gradient will slowly relax across the southern plains later today and tonight.   This is due to the major upper level system exiting the upper Midwest.   This system has been responsible for blizzards across the central and Midwest and severe weather yesterday afternoon and evening across part of Mississippi and Alabama.   We’re in good shape for the next few days.

We should experience a few days of sunny and pleasant weather.   After today’s highs in the lower to mid-40s, we’ll begin Thursday morning with lows in the upper teens and lower 20s.   Light southwest winds Thursday along with sunshine will bring the temperatures back to near 50.   Friday southwest winds at 10 mph will also help to support highs in the lower to mid-50s.  Beginning Friday night, I’ll make some minor changes to the on-going forecast based on new data this morning.  

Friday night into Saturday morning another fast moving upper level wave will dive down the intermountain region.   Yesterday, this system appeared to be taking a more southern route and should swing across west TX and into central Texas Saturday afternoon and evening.  This morning the disturbance is more north, and would bring a few small areas of light precip into the northeastern part of the state.   Since this is the first run with this change, I’ll introduce a very small chance for some flurries or snow showers for Friday night and early Saturday morning.   This chance will remain around 10%. 

Sunday another cold front will sweep across the area around midday to afternoon.   After lows in the 30s and highs in the mid-50s, the temperatures will drop Sunday night and remain cold early next week.   This morning’s data also suggest a better chance of some light precipitation with this system beginning Sunday night.   I’ll introduce a 20% chance for this period of Sunday night into Monday morning.   Monday morning lows in the 20s will be followed by highs in the lower 40s or even the upper 30s.   Tuesday morning lows in the 20s are likely.   Tuesday morning into the afternoon another shot of cold air will move into the Missouri Valley and we’ll get a taste of highs in the upper 30s or lower 40s.  

Thanks for reading the Wednesday morning weather discussion and blog.

Have a super great day!
