Unseasonably chilly air is hanging around Green Country for the last day of March!


Mostly sunny skies return to Green Country today, with more high clouds likely across southeastern Oklahoma. Despite the sunshine, you’ll still need the jacket with highs well below normal in the lower 50s. Northeast winds of 10 to 15 miles per hour this morning will slowly diminish this afternoon.

 

 


Another frost or freeze is also expected tonight into Monday morning particularly north and northeast of Tulsa where temperatures are most likely to drop back below freezing. It’d be a good idea to keep those tender plants covered up for another night! The first day of April will be another somewhat cool one on Monday with highs in the upper 50s and an increase in clouds.



Thankfully, another rapid spring rebound is on the way! South winds increase on Tuesday and highs will soar back to near 70 degrees Tuesday afternoon. We should be making a habit of those warmer afternoon temperatures for the rest of the week as well, with highs around the 70-degree mark from mid to late week and potentially into this weekend as well.

The first half of our week will remain dry, but rain and storm chances pick back up by Wednesday night into Thursday morning with another area of low pressure sweeping across the state. Given the time of year, it’s likely this system will produce at least a few severe storms across the state from late Wednesday into early Thursday, although the exact details are still to be determined. We’ll keep you advised!
