*** A HIGH WIND WATCH has been issued for western and central Oklahoma for tonight through Thursday morning. ***

A powerful cold front will sweep across the state Wednesday evening, moving through central Oklahoma by the morning commute.

A few showers and thunderstorms are possible along and ahead of the front, especially for northeastern Oklahoma.  There is a slight risk for severe weather in northeastern Oklahoma.  Powerful northwesterly winds will follow the frontal passage with possible gusts to 60 mph!

Although not quite as strong, winds will stay up through the afternoon tomorrow resulting in an extremely high fire danger.  Temperatures will be slightly cooler with highs in the 50s.

Temperatures will climb back to the 60s for Friday and Saturday.  Our next storm system will move in Monday and Tuesday bringing showers and possibly a winter mix.  Long-range models suggest a winter storm 1 week from this Friday. Stay tuned for updates!
