Temperatures will start in the 20s and 30s early Thursday morning and reach highs in the lower 50s as another weak storm system quickly approaches the area from the southwest by afternoon and evening.

What will the weather be like in Oklahoma on Thursday, February 29?

Dry air in the lower level of the atmosphere will initially prohibit measurable precipitation from reaching the surface but by later today and tonight, some light precipitation will be possible.

Highs 2/29/2024

A thermal process will occur as the showers begin to fall from the cloud deck to the surface and may and allow a few sleet pellets to mix with showers with no little impact. South winds will also gradually increase speeds later today from 10 to 22 mph.

Rain 2/29/2024

This upper-level wave will exit the area overnight bringing mostly sunny and pleasant weather Friday with morning lows in the 30s and afternoon highs in the mid-60s. Gusty south winds will return this weekend with increasing fire danger issues.

What will the weather be like in Oklahoma this weekend?

A spring-like weather pattern is likely this weekend with afternoon highs reaching the upper 70s and lower 80s Saturday and the lower 80s Sunday afternoon.

Weekend 2/29/2024

Strong to gusty south winds from 15 to 25 mph are anticipated Saturday with slightly stronger winds Sunday as the next stronger upper-level storm system develops across the western U.S and ejects into the central to northern plains early next week.

The latest data suggests this system may be slightly out of phase regarding any significant thunderstorm chances for eastern Oklahoma initially, but a few storms will be possible Monday afternoon and evening across southeastern OK.

What will the weather be like in Oklahoma next week?

As the next stronger system nears northern intermountain region Sunday, low level moisture will be attempting to move from Texas into the eastern third of Oklahoma Sunday into early Monday, but deeper moisture may reside near or south of the ArklaTex by Monday morning.

The stronger lift associated with the upper-level system will be moving across the central and northern plains while another surface front will move across the area Monday.

These features will support the mention of a few storms near or east of the Tulsa metro, but higher chances may continue to pivot east and south of our immediate areas where the deeper moisture is expected.

Will there be severe weather in Oklahoma next week?

Enough dynamic energy from this system could trigger strong to severe storms but the position and depth of the returning moisture may still mitigate the threat to areas of far southeastern OK into western Arkansas.

At this point, our probability of storm activity remains near 20%. Temps behind the departing system will drop highs in the 60s before another wave nears the state Wednesday through Friday with additional mentions for showers or storms.

A stronger upper-level low may be approaching the area by the latter half of next week with increasing rain and thunderstorm chances.
