surface high pressure will settle over the Southern Plains
tonight. As a result, winds will diminish, and with dry air and
clear skies, temperatures will also diminish quite a bit.
Overnight lows will be below freezing across most of our forecast
area. Wednesday daytime will be similarly cool, but after that,
temperatures will be above average to much above average for the
remainder of our 7-day forecast.

A cold front will move through the region Friday afternoon through
Saturday morning, causing a slight drop in temperatures and a wind
shift, but little else.

Another cold front is expected to arrive Monday night/Tuesday,
bringing another drop in temperatures and wind shift. This time,
there will be at least a slight chance for rain in parts of
southeast Oklahoma.
