More Cold Air

A short wave is exiting the region this morning and has been responsible for developing some light snow flurries overnight across portions of the area.  A very small area of Kay, Osage, Muskogee, Cherokee, and Adair counties may have received a dusting on the grassy areas overnight.  This short wave is exiting the region this morning, but the main upper level storms remains to our southwest this morning and will lift out across the area today.  I would not anticipate any big areas of flurries after the noon hour, but some flurries may still occur this morning in a few spots.  Morning clouds and gusty winds will remain through the noon hour before some clearing will occur and sunshine will make a late day appearance. Highs will remain in the lower to mid 30s with gusty north winds.  Big coat weather will remain.

 

After this system moves eastward, we'll be in a holding pattern through the end of the week with temperatures below the seasonal average.  Another cold front will move over the area Friday morning but no precipitation is expected.

 

A possible moderation of temps will occur early next week with highs in the lower 50s.
