Alan Crone's Weather Blog: Rain Ending Soon

We're tracking more storms again this morning across part of the area.   Our main issues continue to be the threat of moderate to heavy rainfall across the area leading to additional flooding threats.   A flash flood watch remains for most of the state through Sunday morning.   A cold front will finally move southward across the state Saturday morning bringing some drier and more stable air to the region by afternoon and evening.   This should give most of the region a break from the rain for a few days, but an upper level system will be very close to eastern OK and western Arkansas early next week.   A few neighbors on the OK-Arkansas state line region may experience a few spotty showers Sunday through early next week.   

WARN Interactive Radar

Temperatures today will move back into the upper 70s and lower 80s with south winds around 10 to 15 mph.  Morning rain and storms will linger for a few hours.   Later tonight additional storms are likely to develop and move into the area as a cold front moves southward.   These may linger into early Saturday morning before moving southward by midday.   Saturday morning lows in the mid-60s will be followed by highs in the mid to upper 70s and mostly to partly cloudy conditions.  

Weather Alerts

Sunday morning starts in the upper 50s and ends in the lower 70s with drier conditions and northeast winds.   Monday into Tuesday we'll gradually see warmer and more humid conditions return to the area.   We should be in the mid-80s for the middle of next week with very humid afternoons.
