Saturday Winter Cold And Minor Precipitation Across Oklahoma
TULSA COUNTY, Oklahoma -
Wintry precipitation has certainly been a dud across much of the state, but the winter cold is not going anywhere for our Saturday here in Green Country.
Precipitation will remain most likely across southeastern Oklahoma today, particularly near and south of I-40. Much of this will fall as rain, but some sleet and snow may also mix in at times. Little to no wintry accumulation is expected across southeastern Oklahoma as temperatures look to be just a little too warm for that. In and around the Tulsa metro, much of our day may remain dry! Precipitation chances are now much lower for Tulsa, though some brief light precipitation can’t be totally ruled out for the afternoon hours.
But despite the lack of wintry precipitation, it will still be quite the cold Saturday! Highs look to range mainly in the upper 30s in most spots, with wind chills still in the 20s for much of the day. Bundle up!
What precipitation we do have will steadily come to an end this evening into tonight. As skies clear out overnight, we’ll see lows drop into the 20s across particularly northeastern Oklahoma by early Sunday morning. Areas of sunshine should return on Sunday, but the weekend will still end on a chilly note with highs only in the lower to mid-40s.
Temperatures will be on a steady upward trend heading into next week! We’ll go from the upper 40s on Monday to the 50s by Tuesday and Wednesday as steady south winds return. Clouds will also be on the increase with signs of another storm system by next Thursday and Friday. This system could bring us a chance of showers and possibly a few storms by late next week. We’ll keep you advised!
