Chilly Sunday But Sunshine Returning To Eastern Oklahoma
TULSA, Oklahoma - Here comes the sun! Chilly air sticks around for our Sunday, but sunshine will certainly help things out to wrap up the weekend.
Cloud cover will steadily clear from north-to-south across Green Country early in the day. Additional high clouds will roll through the area, but midday into the afternoon looks mostly sunny across eastern Oklahoma.
The winter chill will continue though despite the increase in sunshine, with Sunday highs in the mid-40s and a light but steady north breeze.
The work week will get off to a frigid start with lows dipping into the 20s early Monday morning! But high pressure in place will lead to a beautiful Monday with plenty of sunshine, very light winds, and highs in the upper 40s.
The warming trend continues on Tuesday as a much stronger south breeze kicks back in. Highs will be back in the 50s Tuesday afternoon with clouds increasing. Clouds will keep us in the 40s and 50s on Wednesday as our next storm system quickly moves in.
A low-pressure system will swing across the Southern Plains on Thursday, with enough moisture available to generate some showers and even an isolated storm or two across Oklahoma. Clouds and rain will likely keep our temperatures in the 40s on Thursday, with very strong north winds kicking in from Thursday afternoon into Friday.
The exact track of this system will determine how widespread any rain will be across eastern Oklahoma on Thursday, so we’ll keep you updated as that becomes more clear! There’s even a very slim chance of a few snowflakes mixing in on the backside of this system by Thursday night or Friday morning, but as of now that does not appear to be any sort of major wintry issue for our area.
