Warmer weather this week with rain chances

Tonight: Overnight tonight we will be seeing temperatures  reach an overnight low of around 42°F with winds picking up as we go into the evening. Cloudy conditions will continue, but we are not expecting any precipitation tonight. Winds however, will be fairly breezy, with winds reaching around 10-15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph. Those winds will only continue to strengthen into tomorrow as well.

TomorrowOver the course of tomorrow, we expect the windy and cloudy conditions to continue, but chances for rain will hold off into the evening. Tomorrow, our projected high is all the way up to 77°F, the warmest we will have seen since October. Unfortunately, the warm conditions do not come with sun, and clouds will be present throughout the day. Winds will be strong through the day, with most of our winds reaching 15-25 mph with gusts up to 40 mph. Over the course of the evening, we could see some severe weather as well, with NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK releasing their SPC Convective Outlook for tomorrow, as shown below. All of our listening area is still only in the Marginal Risk, but still, continue to be weather aware tomorrow evening as these thunderstorms roll through the area.

Upcoming Week:  The rest of this week is fairly active with weather still, as we see chances of rain on Thursday evening, all day Friday, and the latter part of the weekend as well. We will be seeing temperatures cool off a little bit after Thursday, but pleasant temperatures will continue through the week regardless. Enjoy the warm temperatures, but don’t forget the umbrella for all the rain chances through the rest of the week!
