Tracking A Weekend Cold Front In Northeast Oklahoma

Friday, September 9th 2022, 8:07 am


No major changes are expected from previous updates: near normal today and Saturday before a cold front moves into the area Saturday evening and Sunday morning.

This brings a small window for a few showers and a brief taste of early Fall like weather Sunday and Monday. Mid-level riding is expected to rapidly return next week with highs moving back near or above normal for the 2nd half of the week.

Other than the mention of a few showers with the Saturday evening and Sunday morning front, no precipitation is expected in the foreseeable future next week. This anticipated pattern combined with dry conditions and increasing wind speeds later next week will lead to increased fire danger spread rates in some locations.

Temps will start this morning mostly in the 60s with afternoon highs reaching the upper 80s to near 90. Southeast winds return today at 10 to 15 mph. Friday night football games will start in the upper 80s and finish near 80. No weather issues are expected.

The data is a little faster today with the arrival of the initial wind shift from the north Saturday afternoon and evening, but the real front will still lag this wind shift a few hours. Showers and some thunder will be possible along and behind the boundary Saturday afternoon and evening, mostly across northwestern OK into southcentral Kansas. As the front sags south, the main upper-level support will be quickly advancing into the Midwest. Drier surface air will also quickly advance southeast. All of this will lead to decreasing shower chances during the early Sunday morning period. Any precipitation with the system will be very light. 

As the drier air advances south, this brings the potential for very cool, pleasant temperatures during the Monday morning period. Many locations will start in the 50s. A few sheltered and valley spots may briefly support upper 40s right before sunrise Monday morning. Unfortunately, mid-level riding is expected to rapidly return bringing warmer weather across the state by the middle to end of next week.

Thanks for reading the Friday morning weather discussion and blog.

Have a super great day!
