Showers With Falling Temps Across Northeast Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Due to ongoing showers and thunderstorms across part of the area early this morning, I’ll need to keep the morning update brief.  A strong upper level low is stacked atop a surface low and will produce a few storms early this morning before exiting quickly to the east later this morning.  A few wrap around clouds and showers will be possible later this afternoon before the influence of the low finally leaves the region.   Temps will be tricky today with the possibility of hitting the highs around midday for the metro with readings falling into the lower 50s this afternoon with stout northwest winds around 20 to 30 mph.  I would keep the jackets handy.

We’ll see rather uneventful weather for the rest of the week before another system arrives Friday into the weekend with additional thunderstorm chances appearing the highest Sunday.

The surface low is located around or west of Ponca City this morning and should eject rapidly to the east or northeast during the next few hours.   A trailing dry line will sweep across the area from the west to east and may trigger a few additional showers or storms along and east of highway 69 for the early morning hours.   One or two of the storms may be marginally severe with some small hail and gusty winds.  There will remain a very low threat of low-topped storms closer to the upper level low for the next hour or so that may produce a hail and wind threat as well.  But the overall severe weather threat is quickly winding down early this morning.  Once the dry air moves into the area early this morning the threat of any strong storms will quickly end.  As the back side of the upper level low brushes the northeast Oklahoma region later this afternoon, scattered clouds will develop along with a few spotty showers along with the strong winds from the northwest.   These will dissipate with the loss of daytime heating also corresponding to the low moving east.

The pattern will support gradually warming weather by the end of the week before another upper level wave draws near the state with some additional storm chances Friday into the weekend.

Thanks for reading the abbreviated Monday morning weather discussion and blog.

    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.
