Discussion...
a mild cold front will move across Oklahoma today bringing little
in the way of cold air...temperatures are still expected to be
slightly above normals. When this front and a weak upper trough
pass over southeast Oklahoma this afternoon, there could be some
light rain. A second short-wave trough brings another, equally
small chance for rain early Monday to about the same area. Beyond
this, several dry frontal passages are expected this week, and by
middle-week a strong warming, upper ridge will take temperatures 20
to 25 degrees above normals. Gusty southwest winds may develop as
far east as western Oklahoma on Thursday bringing increased fire
potential. The heat abates somewhat by the weekend, but
temperatures will still be well above normals for late February.
