Pleasant conditions are expected Wednesday with morning lows in the 50s and highs in the lower 80s before the next storm system arrives Thursday with additional storm chances followed by a relative cool-down into the weekend. 

Are there more storm chances this week in Oklahoma?

As the next upper-level wave approaches from the west, a surface area of low-pressure forms across far northern OK later Tuesday night into early Thursday morning.

The low-level moisture that is being pushed southward today will quickly return late Wednesday into early Thursday morning effectively creating a boundary across extreme northern OK and southern Kansas.

South winds will increase late Wednesday evening and increase speeds from 20 to 35 mph Thursday morning bringing additional moisture into the central and eastern part of the state.

By afternoon, a surface cold front will move southeast triggering scattered storms, including some severe threats along and southeast of I-44. This front should clear the area late Thursday night, taking any strong or severe storms out of the area.

But the long wave trough positioned nearby will bring lift near and over the surface boundary resulting in additional shower and thunder chances for part of Saturday near and south of I-40. A second boundary should arrive Saturday evening taking the moisture out of the area until our next front arrives early next week.

What will the weather be like this weekend in Oklahoma?

Weekend lows will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Afternoon highs will stay in the lower 60s Saturday and the upper 50s and lower 60s Sunday.
