Sunday Showers For Green Country As Stormy Period Takes Shape

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Time to pull out the rain gear! Some Sunday showers are on the way, and this is just the first of several rounds of rain and storms headed to Green Country in the days ahead.

Expect some off-and-on scattered showers across eastern Oklahoma today, particularly from the morning hours into early afternoon. Most activity will be fairly light, but a few embedded storms with lightning and brief heavy downpours will be possible.

With much cloudier skies in place today, we’ll stay quite a bit cooler than the warm weather we got to soak up on Saturday. We’re looking at Sunday highs mainly in the low to mid 60s, although areas that see more rain could easily end up a bit cooler than that.

A few isolated thunderstorms remain possible into the afternoon and evening hours, so be aware for any outdoor plans! Rain chances look to trend higher again late tonight and into Monday morning as a round of storms rolls out of central Oklahoma and into eastern Oklahoma. These storms will have the potential to be a bit stronger with some hail and strong winds possible along with locally heavy rainfall for the Monday morning commute.

Once again on Monday, some off-and-on showers will remain possible during the day, with another flare-up of storm activity possible later in the afternoon hours and particularly by the evening and night. As temperatures climb to around 70 degrees and instability increases, a few storms on Monday could become severe with large hail and damaging winds possible.

Our heaviest round of rain and storms still looks to impact Green Country from Monday night into Tuesday morning. Along with the potential for a few strong to severe storms, flooding will become a potential issue as storms “train” over the same locations. By the time rain starts to taper off late Tuesday, we could be looking at 2 to 4 inches of rain in some locations, especially near and southeast of Tulsa.

After mild weather on Monday, things could turn somewhat raw and chilly on Tuesday as those storms impact Green Country. Temperatures may be falling into the 50s and 40s by late Tuesday with a brisk north wind. Things look a bit drier by mid to late week, although a few lighter showers may return on Thursday as well.

    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.
