Happy Memorial Day! I hope your holiday is going well. We have an opportunity for a few thunderstorms the next few days. With the increased chance of rain, temperatures won’t be as high as what we have been experiencing. All in all, it looks like the next few days will have a few rounds of storms, and it won’t be as hot.
TONIGHT: Storms will fire along a slow moving cold front in northwest Oklahoma. Some large hail and strong winds can be expected with the strongest storms, and heavy rainfall is also possible. The storms should move southeast overnight into central Oklahoma.
TOMORROW: The front will remain draped across northern Oklahoma so thunderstorm chances will remain in the state. The highest chances will be early in the morning, then again later in the afternoon. With more clouds and a few storms around, highs will be mostly in the 80s.
WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY: The front will continue to slowly move south making it to the Red River by late Wednesday. We’ll still have a few storm opportunities, and again, a few severe storms can be expected on Wednesday with rain chances decreasing by Thursday. Afternoon temperatures will be in the 80s both days.
FRIDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND: The ridge begins to build again, and that means a return to dry and very warm weather. Highs will generally be in the 80s, but a few 90s will begin to show up by Sunday.
NEXT WEEK: Hot and dry with highs in the 90s much of the week.
