A few leftover showers and thunderstorms will remain possible for the next few hours across part of northern Oklahoma. Later today additional scattered showers or storms will be a possibility across eastern and northern sections of the state.  We will again include a mention for the Tulsa metro. Temperatures this morning are now in the upper 60s and lower 70s and will move into the upper 80s or lower 90s later this afternoon.

The front and numerous outflow boundaries sparked off a few storms yesterday and last night.   The front is slowly lifting northward this morning. A mid-level ridge of high pressure located across the Southeastern portion of the United States is helping to funnel low-level moisture across Eastern Texas into Southeastern Oklahoma.    A few outflow boundaries are noted this morning across part of northern OK including one near the metro.   Locations near and north of the metro may see a brief up-tick in precip for the next hour or two but the odds low.  By the most time most folks read the discussion this outflow will be diffuse. 

Weather Alerts

Later today and early this evening storms may attempt to develop across far northern OK and southern Kansas before moving northeast.   Just like yesterday afternoon, a few of these storms may be severe with down bursts of wind.  The higher chances for these storms will remain north and northwest of the immediate area.   A few late afternoon pop-up storms will be possible across eastern OK and western Arkansas by midday but these should dissipate quickly with the loss of daytime heating.   A few Friday Night Football games will be played tonight.   Most games will be in good shape weather-wise.   But games closer to the northern OK and southern Kansas state line could have a storm or two.   Regardless all fans and coaches tonight should still remain weather aware.

A few showers and storms will be a possibility this weekend as this moisture plume extends across the area into Western Arkansas and part of Eastern Oklahoma. This means spotty showers and storms will remain possible both Saturday and Sunday, but most locations will remain dry.

The pattern will continue to support a mention for a few showers or storms early next week with morning lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s and daytime highs near 90. Some extended data indicates a return to hot conditions by the end of next week.

Thanks for reading the Friday morning weather discussion and blog. Have a super great day.
