A few areas of patchy fog may remain for the next few hours across part of northeastern Oklahoma, especially around the Bartlesville area Friday morning.
As the day progresses, we will see increasing wind speeds from the south and southwest. Temperatures will again be well above the seasonal average with afternoon highs expected near the mid-80s. Friday night football games will be mild and dry with games starting near 79 and ending around 72 along with a few clouds and south winds at 10 mph.
The main upper air flow will keep the warm air across the southern plains for the next few days. A mid-level ridge of high pressure is expected to develop and become centered across Texas but the northern influence will include the state of Oklahoma. A trough of low pressure in the mid to upper levels will move across the northern third of the nation over the next 24 to 36 hours and our wind speeds will increase from the south and southwest at 15 to 25 mph Saturday in response to falling pressures to our north. Saturday morning lows will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s with afternoon highs in the lower to mid-80s.
Sunday morning a weak front may be positioned along the Ok-Kansas state line but should have very little impact on sensible weather for most folks. Lows Sunday morning in the upper 50s and lower 60s will rebound to highs in the lower 80s by afternoon with sunshine a few high thin clouds. The wind speeds may be lower Sunday with south winds near 10 mph.
Monday another strong low pressure area will eject across the northern Plains with our winds increasing speeds from 20 to 30 mph in response to the falling pressures. Temperatures will be mild with lows in the lower 60s and highs in the lower to mid-80s. Monday night, Halloween evening from 5pm to 8pm, looks pleasant and dry but gusty south winds will remain across eastern OK.
Tuesday into Wednesday the pattern starts to slowly change but we do have some differences in the model output regarding some of the positioning of a few important features. I’ll refrain from posting too much at this point, but a few showers or storms may return as early as Wednesday with slight chances through Friday or even into next weekend. No major cold air will be found but a noticeable cool down is possible by late next week into next weekend.
Thanks for reading the Friday morning weather discussion and blog.
Have a super great day!
