Today promises temperatures pretty close to average with highs in the low to mid 50s in the metro and 60s over southwest Oklahoma. Expect 40s for highs around Alva, Enid, and cities east from there. Winds will be fairly light most of the day and pick up to around 10-15mph out of the southeast in the metro during the afternoon. Panhandles will be a bit more breezy with winds out of the south at 15-25mph in the PM hours.
Overnight, temperatures will be a bit stubborn as clouds move in across the state. We’ll bottom out in the low to mid 40s in the metro and upper 30s north of I-40. A weak storm system will move into northwest OK after midnight as moisture builds ahead of it. A few light showers and sprinkles are possible after midnight for cities along and east of I-35, but we won’t see much more than a few hundredths of an inch at best.
Patchy sprinkles or a few light showers are possible Sunday morning and afternoon, mainly for central and eastern Oklahoma. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies and highs in the 50s to low 60s. The breeze will shift to the north behind the cold front at around 10-15mph in the metro and 15-25mph near the panhandles.
Highs next week will once again soar to the 70s and 80s and the fire danger will return. Long range models suggest our next storm system will move in late next weekend. Stay tuned!
