Off-And-On Sunday Rains For Green Country

Keep the umbrella close by, we’ve got another round of rain chances to wrap up the weekend across eastern Oklahoma.

Off-and-on rain and storms are possible throughout our Sunday across eastern Oklahoma, so be prepared with some indoor alternatives for any outdoor plans. And if you’re planning to check out the final day of the Tulsa State Fair, make sure you’ve got some rain gear ready to go. There will be breaks in the rain, though; it won’t rain continuously today.

Afternoon highs will be relatively seasonable for our Sunday, ranging from the upper 70s in northeast Oklahoma to the low 80s in southeast Oklahoma. Also, with just enough instability and wind shear in place, a few strong to severe storms will be possible by the afternoon and evening hours. Damaging winds will be the biggest threat.

Rain and storm chances look to continue overnight into early Monday morning, but the highest chances will shift to the north and west of Tulsa by Monday morning.

Rain chances diminish during the day Monday to just a slight chance for an isolated shower, and it’ll be a warm and muggy start to the work week with highs back in the mid-80s.

A strong upper-level storm system takes shape on Tuesday, setting the stage for one more round of storms. We’ll have some off-and-on rain during the day Tuesday, but a more intense squall line of strong to severe storms looks likely to impact Green Country by late Tuesday into Tuesday night. This could bring the threat of damaging winds along with flash flooding.

That final round of storms looks to clear out of Green Country by early Wednesday, and then fall finally returns. Much drier and much cooler air will begin to filter in Wednesday, and by late in the week it’ll feel much more crisp with highs in the 60s and lows potentially down into the 40s as we wrap up the upcoming week.

Have a wonderful Sunday, Green Country! Be sure to keep the News On 6 app handy to get the latest alerts as storms move through today. Also, you can follow me on Twitter as well as my Facebook page to stay up to date with the very latest.
