A strong cold front is headed toward northeast Oklahoma and promises to bring in sharply cooler temperatures along with a chance for more much needed rain.
Skies will remain mostly clear through the evening hours, before clouds begin to increase after midnight. Temperatures will remain on the warm side with lows in the upper-60s to lower-70s. Southeast winds will stay up around 10 mph. Rain and thunderstorms will stay to the west of the viewing. Chance of rain in eastern Oklahoma less than 20%.
Showers and storms are a good bet in the morning as the cold front draws closer. South winds 10-15mph will turn to the north early in the day across our northern counties, and not until evening in far southeast sections of the state. Temperatures will vary greatly tomorrow thanks to the clouds and rain. Highs in the north will struggle to reach the middle-70s, while area down around McAlester will be in the lower-80s before the rain arrives. Severe weather is low with this system as much of the dynamics need for severe weather head well north of us. Though one or two severe storms, wind an hail being the main threat, will be possible.
Skies look to remain mostly cloudy but the rain will be ending north of I-40. Areas of rain will linger to the south and could last into the early hours on Sunday. North to northeast winds around 10mph will lessen to around 5mph. Lows will dip down into the 50s with a few 40s possible north along the Oklahoma/Kansas state line.
Clouds will thin out during the morning and skies will become mostly sunny by afternoon. Temperatures will be on par for this time of year in the upper-70s. Winds will be light out of the northeast.
