Irma Bringing Clouds To Eastern Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

For the second week in a row, we’re pretty much in a holding pattern with no major or eventful weather events in our near future.   A mid-level ridge of high pressure currently to our west will expand eastward by the end of this week helping to bring some summer-like heat back to the region with highs in the lower 90s.   This ridge will remain centered to our west and will allow a weak surface front to slide southward this weekend into far northern Oklahoma and southeastern Kansas.   This may be enough of an intrusion to spark off a few isolated storms but the odds will remain very low.   We may have a stronger surface front arriving for the middle of next week.    Highs today will stay in the upper 70s and lower 80s with slightly breezy north winds and considerable high clouds across the eastern third of the state as Irma draws slightly closer to our area.

The remnant of Irma will eventually make it to Arkansas or eastern Tennessee as a remnant low around later tonight into Wednesday.   Any precipitation associated with this system will remain to our east but a few sprinkles or small showers may brush extreme southeastern Oklahoma later today. 

We’ll experience some northeast surface winds and slightly drier air today through Wednesday with the surface circulation around the storm along with some clouds across the eastern third of the state.  This should act to keep the highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s this afternoon with pleasant weather across the region. Thursday into Friday the old tropical system will eventually be absorbed into the upper air flow and eject across the northeastern U.S   Our temps will drop into the 50s for Wednesday morning with highs tomorrow afternoon moving into the upper 80s with a warm-up into the lower 90s this weekend.
