The summer sweat continues for our Sunday ahead of a bigger fall weather pattern shift as we head into the upcoming week!

Once again, well above-normal temperatures are on tap to wrap up the weekend. Look for partly to mostly sunny skies and a steady south breeze to help push our highs back into the low 90s this afternoon. One or two very isolated storms may bubble up during the heating of the afternoon, so just be aware!

Clouds will begin a gradual increase on Monday as showers and storms continue across western Oklahoma and western Kansas in response to our approaching storm system. Despite the increase in clouds, we’ll again be unseasonably warm to start the work week as highs will still climb into the upper 80s Monday afternoon.

The long-awaited front we’ve been tracking for several days will begin a gradual push into Oklahoma on Tuesday, and with it comes a chance for scattered showers and storms later in the day Tuesday, particularly for areas west of Tulsa. The slow movement of the front will likely allow our highs to climb back into the 80s for one more day Tuesday from Tulsa to the east.

Seven Day Forecast

Cooler fall air will gradually take over on Wednesday as that front very slowly sinks south into southern Oklahoma. How do highs in the 70s sound, fall weather fans? Scattered storms will continue Wednesday as well, and once again the best chance of storms will generally be from Tulsa to the west, with rain chances much lower for areas east of Tulsa.

Unfortunately, rain amounts do not look very heavy with this storm system as the main upper-level forcing looks to stay north of Green Country. Rain amounts look to be less than an inch in most locations, and some spots east of Tulsa may see very little measurable rain at all.

Scattered showers may continue to linger into Thursday as the Tulsa State fair kicks off with very pleasant fall-like temperatures in the 70s! That fall feeling should be sticking around into the first weekend of the fair as lows dip back into the 50s and highs hold in the 70s. Fall weather is almost back!
