Stormy Weather Ahead

Posted: Updated:

Yet another round of stormy weather will impact Green Country for our Saturday.

A widespread area of rain and storms will impact much of eastern Oklahoma from mid-morning through early to mid-afternoon. A few embedded strong storms will be possible with some hail not out of the question in the strongest storms. There is also a brief window for an isolated severe storm across primarily far southeastern Oklahoma this afternoon, with again large hail looking to be the biggest threat.

Localized flooding will also be a concern particularly just south and southeast of Tulsa where several inches of rain has already fallen this past week. Another 1 to 2 inches of rain will be possible in the heaviest storms which could cause some rivers and creeks to swell and could flood some roads in typical flood-prone areas. Please be cautious while driving. Remember: Turn Around, Don’t Drown!

Storms will quickly move east of Green Country by the mid-afternoon hours, but the chilly weather will still stick around as clouds will be tough to clear until late in the day. Afternoon highs will likely struggle to climb above the low 50s with an increasing westerly breeze later in the day.

Skies will finally clear out tonight, and it will turn cold with lows dipping into the upper 20s Sunday morning. With lots of moisture hanging around thanks to our recent rains, areas of dense fog will be possible Sunday morning. And with temperatures below freezing, that could lead to some slick spots particularly on bridges and overpasses, so be aware for the possibility of both foggy and slick travel Sunday morning!

But at long last, we’ll see a return to sunshine to round out our weekend! After that morning fog, sunny skies are expected Sunday afternoon with a south breeze warming us nicely back near 60 degrees!

Mild weather looks to stick around into the upcoming week as highs continue to hold in the 60s from Monday through Wednesday. We’ll get a few much-needed days of dry weather as well before another chance for showers and storms arrives by Wednesday.

    The morning complex has basically cleared southeastern OK and continues to roll across part of northeastern TX and southwestern Arkansas early this morning.  Locations along the I-40 region northward will continue with some spotty showers and storms for the next few hours before this activity gradually diminishes.  While a few models try to redevelop some showers and storms around midday across northeastern OK, I’ll continue with a more plausible scenario for additiona...More >>

    Our upper air pattern has transformed back to spring!  As mentioned here earlier this week, the ridge has flattened and basically developed into two distinct areas.  One across the far southeastern U.S into the Gulf and the other across the Mexican Plateau region.
