TULSA, Oklahoma -

Cloudy skies and cool temperatures are expected on Thursday.

Here are the details from News On 6 Meteorologist Alan Crone:

Temps & Rain Chances

Once again strong northwest winds will remain the common denominator across most of the area through the day. A wind advisory will be underway for those locations northwest of I-44, and some additional counties may be added to the advisory later in the day Thursday. Afternoon humidity will remain quite low, but daytime highs will be slightly cooler than Wednesday. Fire danger remains very high. Slightly cooler weather Thursday afternoon will keep red flag warnings mostly to our west. Regardless, fire danger threats remain very high for the next several days.

Thursday Highs

A vigorous upper-level trough located across the Midwestern US will continue to influence our weather for the next 48 hours. As this system moves east this weekend a new developing trough across the western United States will begin to influence our weather.

Saturday Lows

Late Friday night and early Saturday morning, clouds should vacate the area with lighter winds through overnight and early morning. Dry air combined with a clear sky will foster temperatures dropping to near or even below freezing for a few hours Saturday morning. A frost or freeze warning is possible for early Saturday morning. By the afternoon, south winds at 10 to 20 mph with mostly sunny conditions will support highs in the lower 70s. By Sunday stronger south winds return at 20 to 35 mph as afternoon highs climb into the lower 80s. Late Sunday night, storm chances arrive too early Monday morning.

7-Day Rain Outlook

Early next week a powerful upper-level trough in the western US will send waves of energy around the base of the trough across the plains states. A surface area of low pressure, a dry line, and a cold front will influence Oklahoma for several days with thunderstorm chances. Based on the pattern, severe thunderstorm potential will be increasing during these periods. Early indications support this system exiting our area sometime Wednesday. As we draw closer to next week, will be able to offer more specific information regarding storm threats and timing.

Thanks for reading the Thursday morning weather discussion and blog.

Have a super great day!
