A pattern change brings a preview of springlike weather to Oklahoma for the entire week. Chilly morning lows will continue for the next few mornings, but afternoon highs are expected above normal for the week.
Daytime highs will reach the mid to upper 60s on Monday and nearing the mid-70s for the rest of the week. A few high and mid-level clouds will arrive later this afternoon from the southwest. A weak upper-level system will near the region Tuesday into Wednesday with little in the way of sensible weather conditions. A stronger disturbance is likely to near the state by the weekend bringing increasing rain and thunderstorms chances to part of the state before another short-lived cooldown is projected by the 2nd half of the weekend. A rather active weather pattern is expected for next week.
South winds will continue for most of the week, but wind speeds are expected to remain from 10 to 15 mph both Monday and Tuesday. Stronger south winds will gradually arrive Thursday through the end of the week aiding in the development of increasing fire spread issues. Despite the southerly flow, the trajectory of low-level moisture from the Gulf will be inhibited for a few days before arriving Friday into the weekend.
Pattern recognition supports active weather is likely to unfold across the state sometime this weekend and may continue for several days next week. A lead disturbance is likely to round the base of the western U.S. through Friday and could spark off a few storms late Friday night and Saturday morning across the OK-KS state line region. Additional storms will be possible Saturday afternoon as a cold front-dry line passes across the state Saturday afternoon and evening. We’ll have more specifics on the timing of this system on Tuesday. This boundary may stall near or south as another disturbance nears Sunday with additional shower and storm chances.
Thanks for reading the Monday morning weather discussion and blog.
Have a super great day!
