Well below normal temperatures are hanging with Green Country for our Friday! And some folks will still need the rain gear at times today.
Another couple waves of scattered showers will move across eastern Oklahoma during the morning and mid-day hours. Rain chances should gradually diminish as we head further into the afternoon hours.
All of Green Country will get to enjoy another day of unseasonably cool fall temperatures, though some will be much cooler than others. Areas north of Tulsa will only reach the mid 60s under thicker cloud cover, with upper 60s expected in Tulsa. This would be a second straight day of record-breaking cool high temperatures if that holds!
Further south and east of the Tulsa metro, a bigger warm-up is expected with highs climbing into the 70s. That’s still extremely nice for this time of year! If you’re making plans for some Friday night high school football, a few isolated showers may still be lingering. But it’ll be pleasantly cool with temperatures in the 60s for those games. A drier and warmer pattern will set up for the weekend as the very slow-moving system responsible for the recent rainy and cool weather moves off to our east. After some areas of dense fog Saturday morning, we’ll be back to the sunshine Saturday afternoon with highs back in the mid 80s, much closer to average for early September.
A much weaker boundary moves into Oklahoma on Sunday, but it’ll have very little impact on temperatures with highs again in the mid 80s Sunday afternoon. In fact, lows in the 60s and highs in the 80s look to be pretty commonplace as we head into the first half of next week as we set up for a several day stretch of beautiful weather!
