A moist air mass entrenched across eastern Oklahoma will yield scattered showers and thunderstorms again today across part of the area. The coverage will be small in scope compared to yesterday.  Temperatures this morning are currently in the upper 60s and lower 70s and will climb into the lower to mid-90s for daytime highs this afternoon. A weak front will near the area tomorrow with a slightly higher coverage of showers and storms across the state. Dryer air will filter and behind the boundary Thursday and Friday but will be relatively short-lived with a return of southerly surface flow Friday into the weekend. 

WARN Interactive Radar

Yesterday we experienced several scattered showers and storms across Eastern Oklahoma.  Outflow boundaries pushed to the South and produced additional showers and storms. This morning the radar is currently void of precipitation, but we do anticipate scattered showers and storms to develop again this afternoon across part of the area. Just like yesterday, some locations will experience showers and thunderstorms while others will miss out.

A weak front will near Northern Oklahoma sometime tomorrow mid-day or late afternoon with a chance of scattered showers and storms across part of Northern Oklahoma. Severe weather is not anticipated.   One or two storms however may still produce a down burst of wind.   The moist air mass will yield highly efficient rainfall producing systems across the area. This means that some showers and storms could produce locally heavy rainfall.

Weather Alerts

Most data indicate that showers and storms will move away from our area late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning. We will still keep a slight chance for a few showers and storms Thursday, but the higher chances will more than likely remain to our south along the Red River Valley.   I do need to mention the EURO is quite bullish in developing rain Thursday near our area but we’re opting to keep only low mentions at this update.

Friday through the weekend will see morning lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s and daytime highs in the upper 80s Friday moving into the lower to mid 90s this weekend into early next week.

The Labor Day holiday forecast will indicate temperatures slowly warming into the lower or mid-90. A few isolated showers or storms cannot be ruled out, but at this point the chance will remain very low.

Thanks for reading the Tuesday morning weather discussion and blog.

Have a super great day!
