Cold Tonight; Warming Trend Tue-Wed; Weekend Wetness
4:40 pm Mon 16 October 2017
Tonight will be on the cold side as clear skies, dry air and nearly-calm winds allow lows to sink into the lower 40s area wide. Some upper 30s are possible over southeastern Oklahoma, as we saw Monday morning. Tuesday should be another superior day for outdoor activities with highs reaching the mid-70s and southerly breezes at 10 to 15 mph.
Southerly wind flow brings a modest warming trend through mid-week with highs around 80 by Wednesday and Thursday. AN increase in low-level moisture brings thickening clouds for Friday. There’s some chance of rain Friday as a weak trough passes; a much higher chance of rain appear to be in the cards this weekend as a stronger upper-level system interacts with deep Gulf inflow.
Locally heavy rainfall is certainly possible over the weekend, and we’ll need to keep an eye on that. The timing is quite uncertain on which portion of the weekend bears the greatest rain chance, but the models are in general agreement for the heaviest rainfall overnight Saturday night into Sunday.
Tonight: Clear and chilly….Lows 38 to 44
Tuesday: Sunny…..Highs 73 to 77
Thursday: Mostly sunny, breezy…..54/81
Friday: 20% Showers, windy…..60/77
Saturday: 20% Showers, windy ….64/79
Sunday: 50% Showers or thunderstorms…58/68
Monday: Mostly sunny…..51/71
