Temperatures are cool this morning across Northern Oklahoma with light winds and many locations into the mid-50s.  Locally dense fog developed last night across eastern OK and will continue for the next few hours before south winds will return from 10 to 25 mph with temperatures climbing well above the seasonal average.   Afternoon temperature should top out into the lower to mid-80s today after remaining cool yesterday with a weak and shallow boundary across Northern Oklahoma.   Prime Time trick-or-treating activities tonight will mainly be in the 70s with south winds at 10 t0 20 mph.  

Temperatures tomorrow morning will start in the 60s and south winds will continue Tuesday with mostly sunny conditions and highs back into the mid-80s.    Wednesday a weak front will enter part of Northern Oklahoma and will slowly drop southward.  This will increase the precipitation chances Wednesday into early Thursday across part of Northern and Eastern Oklahoma.   Temperatures Wednesday should still top out into the upper 70s with mostly cloudy conditions, but south winds will shift to the north by late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning.   This will allow cooler temperatures to invade the area Thursday with low temperatures in the mid or upper 50s and daytime highs in the upper 60s near 70.   A few showers or storms will be possible Wednesday with a higher chance late Wednesday night into Thursday morning as the surface boundary moves across eastern OK.  

Friday through the weekend looks rather mild at this point regarding our temperatures.   Morning lows will be in the upper 40s near 50 and daytime highs in the lower 70s for Friday through the weekend.   We do have some conflicting data regarding late this weekend into early next week.   I’ll refrain from posting too much at this point, but some shower and storm activity may return to part of Oklahoma this weekend, mainly across the western half of the state.   But Monday into Tuesday additional shower and storm chances may quickly returned as a cut-off low to our west slowly advances into our area.   At this point, the early outlook for Election Day would call for a chance for showers and storms across part of Eastern Oklahoma but this part of the forecast will no doubt see some revisions between now and then!

Thanks for reading the Monday morning where the discussion and blog.

Have a super great day!
