Discussion...
the mild and humid weather and low clouds will finally come to an
end today. A front is arriving from the northwest this morning to
northwest Oklahoma and will bring gusty northwest wind and drier
air. The front is associated with a fast-moving upper trough that
may cause light rain this morning in north central Oklahoma.
Otherwise, sunnier skies and warmer afternoon conditions will
quickly follow. A second, stronger upper level trough will move
through Oklahoma Tuesday. Although the airmass will be
substantially drier, light rain or snow flurries are possible
later Tuesday or early Wednesday. A colder airmass will follow
this trough and bring temperatures closer to seasonable normals
Tuesday and Wednesday. A quick warm-up is expected Thursday before
another front Friday brings more seasonable temperatures again
which will last into the weekend. The GFS and European model (ecmwf) differ on the
strength of an upper trough forecast to pass Saturday. Presently,
it most precipitation would at least be east of central Oklahoma,
and probability of precipitation remain below 20 percent.
