It is almost a play on words, isn’t it?! But, we had the perfect Monday morning. Pleasant temperatures, light winds, clear skies and low dewpoints…it all came together for a very nice start to the day.
The bottom numbers represent the overnight lows, courtesy the Oklahoma Mesonet. Incidentally, I can’t praise the Mesonet folks enough for all of the data they provide us. I’ll never say that our job is easy, but they make it easier!
South winds will return late tonight. The humidity, wind and temperatures will all increase. That northwesterly flow in the jet stream should push a front at least close to, if not into Oklahoma later this week. We should see some thunderstorms, starting in the north late Wednesday, then scattered across at least northern and central Oklahoma Thursday, Friday and Saturday. It won’t rain the entire time, but there will be some storms around for the 4th of July. I wouldn’t cancel my plans at this time, but it does appear that storms will impact some July 4th weekend activities.
