Black Friday Starts Cold But A Pleasant Weekend Pattern Ahead

TULSA, Oklahoma -

Clear sky, light wind, and dry air will allow frosty temps for the morning hours with many locations starting in the 20s as a surface ridge of high pressure remains before moving eastward later on Friday.

This will bring southwest winds at 10 to 15 mph along with sunshine and highs in the upper 60s and lower 50s. A weak front arrives Saturday afternoon and evening but with no major impacts other than a wind shift and slightly cooler weather Sunday. Tomorrow afternoon highs will reach the upper 60s near 70 with Sunday afternoon highs staying in the mid to upper 50s. A series of weak boundaries will skirt part of the state at times next week, but a stronger system will be nearing the region late next week into the weekend with colder weather and low chances of precipitation. 

The upper air flow remains from the northwest to southeast near the state this morning. A strong upper-level trough is located across the northeastern U.S. and a cut-off low is positioned near the Baja in the southern stream. This southern Baja low will eject into Texas later tonight and move across north TX Saturday evening bringing showers and some thunder to these areas. As the next cold front moves across northern OK Saturday afternoon, the boundary will be near the Red River Saturday evening where a few showers may occur for a small period. Higher chances for rain will remain slightly south across the North TX region. The upper pattern will bring more active weather into the southern plains later next week that may continue also for the following week in December.

Thanks for reading the Friday morning weather discussion and blog.

Have a super great day!
