If you have plans for Martin Luther King Jr. Day - make sure you have your sunglasses and your coats. Temperatures are going to be the coolest of the week throughout the day.

The sunny skies are going to be GREAT for any parades you plan on attending, but you’ll want to make sure you have all the proper layers on as well. When line-up starts for the Tulsa parade, temperatures are going to be down in the 20s with it only slightly warming up to 30° when the parade starts. Grab a coat, hat, scarf and gloves if you plan on walking or just watching the parade.


Tuesday morning is going to kick-off with one of the coldest temperatures we’ve seen so far this winter! Morning temperatures will be in the teens and low-20s. The clear skies and calm winds help morning temperatures cool down but they’ll also help things warm back up for the afternoon.

Clouds will not be a problem for Tuesday, instead, you’ll be able to enjoy LOTS of sunshine going into the short work week for some.


By Wednesday, you’ll want your umbrellas and coats! Temperatures will stay in the low-40s for highs but the widespread showers will make for a gloomy day.

Pockets of some heavier rain will be possible but storms are unlikely on Wednesday.


More rain and even some thunderstorms are possible. These storms are not expected to turn severe but some pockets of more moderate to heavy rain along with some rumbles of thunder will be possible.

Temperatures will be warmer on Thursday than on Wednesday or Friday thanks to winds out of the south bringing in warm air.

Rain will start to push out of western portions of the area Thursday evening and eventually clear out of the FOX23 viewing area by Friday morning.


Once the rain clears out, partly cloudy skies will stick around. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Friday thanks to a cold front that will push through but the front will clear out the rain and clouds.

Winds will be relatively calm as well so if you have any errands you need to run or if you want to go to the Green Country Home and Garden Show, it is going to be a great afternoon to do that!


Sunny skies and mild temperatures return for the weekend. No rain is expected for Saturday or Sunday but the better of the two days will be Sunday!

That’s because of more sunshine to enjoy and the warmer temperatures. Highs will climb from upper-40s on Saturday into the mid-50s by Sunday.

No matter which day you choose to go outside this weekend - it is going to be wonderful!
