Beautiful Sunday Ahead

The gorgeous weather continues for our Sunday, but increasing storm chances are looming as we head into the work week.

Our Sunday is shaping up as yet another great day to get outside! Clouds for the morning hours will gradually give way to more sunshine as the day progresses. We’ll again return to the mid 80s for afternoon highs today with comfortable humidity levels and an increasing south-southeast breeze.

That steadier south breeze will be sticking around into the work week, which means our mornings will not be nearly as chilly. Morning lows will hold in the mid to upper 60s to start our Monday, and a very gusty south wind Monday afternoon will shove our highs into the upper 80s!

Some parts of Green Country remain bone dry and fire danger will be elevated with Monday’s strong winds, so please plan on saving the outdoor burning for another day!

Muggier conditions will return by mid-week as a more active weather pattern takes shape. Isolated storms are possible later in the day Tuesday before a weak frontal boundary approaches from Kansas. Storms appear likely on Wednesday for eastern Oklahoma ahead of that front, with some locally heavy storms possible.

While Wednesday looks to be the stormiest day, lingering humid air across Green Country will lead to a continued off-and-on chance of a few isolated storms into Thursday and Friday as well.

A quick-moving front may provide an additional round of storms by early next weekend, ahead of a much stronger front that should bring much cooler fall air back to our area a little more than a week from now!
