October is off to a warm start with temperatures running some 10-15 degrees above what they should be for this time of year, but an end is in sight. That end is going to take a few more days, which means we will have to put up with the heat an humidity for a while longer.
Southeast winds will stay up overnight and this, along with a very moist lower atmosphere, will help to keep temperatures in the 60s to lower-70s. Skies will be mainly clear but a few clouds will start to filter in by Thursday morning.
Look for partly to mostly clouds skies early, before skies become mostly clear by afternoon. Southeast winds will gust to near 30mph at times. Temperatures will warm through the 70s and into the upper-80s to lower-90s by afternoon.
We'll have a repeat of Wednesday Night with a brisk south wind and lots of moisture in the air helping to keep overnight temperatures generally in the 70s. Clouds will be on the increase by Friday morning as a strong low pressure system to our north draws deeper moisture northward into the state.
Friday is the day of change here in Northeast Oklahoma. Temperatures will once again climb into the upper-80s to near 90 be afternoon. Clouds will continue to thicken throughout the day as a strong cold front approaches from the northwest. Right now is looks like a line of storms will develop along the front and rapidly race to the southeast through the overnight hours Friday and into the early hours Saturday. Some severe weather will be possible, so stay with FOX23. com and FOX23 News for the latest information.
Have a wonderful night.
