The record-breaking warm temperatures will continue for one more day!
Highs today will soar to the upper 70s and lower 80s in central and southern Oklahoma. OKC will likely reach another record high with a forecast of 80 degrees versus 78 degrees set back in 1893! Winds will quickly increase to 20-35 mph, resulting in an extremely high fire danger. A cold front will move into northwestern Oklahoma this afternoon, resulting in highs in the middle 70s for this part of the state.
The powerful cold front will move through our state tonight and winds will ramp up to 30 mph out of the north. Lows will drop to the 40s. Highs tomorrow will be cooler in the 50s under cloudy skies. The fire danger will once again be high due to strong north winds.
The cool-down will continue and our next storm system will bring scattered showers on Saturday. Rain could switch to snow for northern Oklahoma Saturday night through Sunday morning. Accumulations should be light.
Temperatures will climb to seasonal highs near 50 again next week. Stay tuned for updates and enjoy our last day of crazy-warm temps!
