A weak storm system will near for the middle of the week bringing a mention for a few showers or storms to portions of northeast Oklahoma. Low level moisture in the form of higher dew point temperatures returning into the lower 70s will be likely by Wednesday and Thursday also aiding in a few spotty showers or storms. The latest tropical system, Sally, will make landfall either late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning as a category one hurricane east of New Orleans and west of Gulfport before the storm moves north and east impacting Mississippi and Alabama Wednesday evening into Thursday. No significant weather impacts are expected across eastern OK due to Sally. Paulette and Rene are also in the Atlantic Basin but should have no major impacts on mainland U.S. interests.Image Provided By: Alan Crone
As Sally moves away from the region, a mid-level ridge of high pressure is expected to build across the state Friday into the weekend keeping us mostly sunny and dry. Some data also suggest a back-door front nearing Friday with a slug of dry air (lower dew point temps) moving across northeastern OK Friday through the weekend with the result of great weekend weather.
Temperatures will not be quite as cool this week compared to last week but will remain pleasant for this time of the year. Morning lows will mostly be in the lower 60s this week with afternoon highs in the lower 80s. The weekend features lows in the upper 50s and highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
