Spring-like Sunday Warmth For Eastern Oklahoma
TULSA, Oklahoma -
What month is it, again? The calendar may say early January, but it’s feeling more like late March to wrap up the weekend here in Green Country.
Another day of unseasonably warm weather is on the way! High clouds are on the increase, but that won’t stop us from climbing into the upper 60s for our Sunday afternoon! Expect a much breezier day as south winds increase to 15 to 25 miles per hour. Despite the wind, it’ll be another spectacular day to get outside! There may be a spotty sprinkle or two to dodge by late in the day as well.
Those south winds will get a bit stronger tonight into early Monday morning, with gusts to 35 miles per hour possible overnight as our next quick-hitting storm system arrives. A few light showers look to develop overnight through early Monday morning. These won’t amount to a whole lot, and many of us will likely stay dry with any lingering rain clearing out by sunrise Monday.
A weak cold front surges through Green Country on Monday morning, but it won’t bring any immediate cool-down. Temperatures will remain very warm by January standards on Monday, with 50s in the morning and highs back into the upper 60s Monday afternoon!
Our taste of spring-like weather starts to settle down this week as a stronger push of cooler air arrives. We’ll pick up a cool north breeze on Tuesday, though temperatures will still be well above normal in the upper 50s. But a stronger area of high pressure will arrive by Wednesday, and that will be enough to usher our temperatures back down to more typical January values. Highs look to return to the 40s by late in the week.
Rain chances look to increase again by late in the week as another southern Plains storm system spreads rain out of Texas into Oklahoma. The details are still very much to be determined, but some showers will be possible late Thursday into Friday, and perhaps lingering into Saturday as well. We’ll keep you advised!
