There’s a lot to talk about for Sunday and Monday. I want to tackle that a little later when I have the rest of the morning computer model data available. Some of it is in, but I want to see the rest.
I ran home after the news to grab a bite to eat and had to use the wipers a few times. We have patches of drizzle across central and eastern Oklahoma late this morning. Earlier, we had some strong/severe storms in southeastern Oklahoma.
For today, I’m not expecting much sunshine. There will be a few breaks in the clouds, especially in western Oklahoma. Highs will range from the 50s in the northeast to the 70s in the panhandle. South winds will return by late afternoon. This will start to bring warm, moist air in from the Gulf of Mexico. Just looking at the surface map, I noticed 65-70 degree dewpoints in south Texas. By this point tomorrow, it will certainly be warmer and more humid.
As the moisture returns late tonight, we could see a few showers and thunderstorms during the late night hours. I can’t rule out hail with some of those storms, especially in eastern Oklahoma.
We’re still tracking the severe weather potential for Sunday into Monday. More on that later….
