We’re still in a severe drought in northeastern Oklahoma.
News On 6 Meteorologist Dick Faurot says we have a slight chance for rain Sunday night, with greater chances on Monday.
He says. “There may even be a few showers on Sunday in advance of this system, but the chances look to be less than 20 percent at this time and primarily confined to the extreme southeastern counties.”
Faurot says there is a possibility the storms on Monday could be quite strong.
“Although I am going with a 40 percent chance of showers/storms on Monday that is very conditional."
The showers may last through the early morning hours on Tuesday.
We'll see another round Thursday.
Faurot says, “There will be a slight chance on Thursday, but the better chance looks to be on Friday.”
The warm and windy conditions will remain.
The daytime high will be near 80 for most of the week.
Then, a significant cold front moves through the state on Friday.
“If present trends continue, most of the precipitation should have ended Friday night, but gusty northerly winds will bring the coolest air of the season into the state for Saturday and Sunday. In fact, would not be surprised to see temperatures near the freezing mark, particularly for Sunday night into Monday morning."
The KRMG StormCenter is staffed and ready to go should any of the storms become severe.
