A weak upper level disturbance will generate a few isolated to scattered showers and storms this morning through mid-morning before moving out of eastern OK.  Temperatures remain in the 60s this morning and will move back into the mid 80s this afternoon along with south winds at 10 to 15 mph.   A mid-level ridge of high pressure should dominate most of the state for the entire week.   This will keep the major storm systems away from the area, but a few isolated showers or storms may occur at times across far eastern OK by mid-week.   A few isolated showers or storms may also occur Thursday across northwestern OK.   The chances for any storm activity, after this morning, will remain near or less than 10% for the remainder of the week.

The weekend featured some very nice fall-like temperatures across the state with two storms systems impacting the area.   The first one brought the cold front into the state Friday night and the second generated showers with a few rumbles of thunder Sunday across part of eastern OK.   The pattern will change today with a return to a southwesterly upper air flow.   This will bring southerly surface flow back into the area with temperatures near the seasonal average through the weekend.  

Data suggest a few minor waves may be nearing the area this week but the stronger system will eject into the central plains Wednesday into Thursday.   The forcing for this system will remain well north of the state, but data suggest a small piece of energy will be near the state Wednesday night into Thursday with a few showers or storms.    Before this system arrives, a weak disturbance may also slide across the OK-Arkanas state line region Tuesday with a few daytime isolated showers or storms.   But at this point, no major storm system will be nearing the state for the next 7 days.  

Thanks for reading the Monday morning weather discussion and blog.

Have a super great day!
