Friday will mark the beginning of an active weather pattern that will result in multiple chances for thunderstorms, including some with severe weather potential. On Friday, widespread thunderstorms are expected to develop to the west Friday morning along a dryline that will move east through the region during the day. The primary severe weather threats with these storms will be damaging straight line winds and locally heavy rainfall. Additional storms may develop during the overnight hours Friday as the upper level low moves overhead. Storms associated with the upper low will have some potential for quarter to half dollar size hail. Thunderstorm chances will decrease from west to east Saturday as the upper low clears the area.
Increasing south winds and warmer temperatures will lead to increasing fire spread potential today ahead of an approaching upper level system. Moisture will also be increasing, which will keep the humidity above critical levels. However...the highest spread rates can be expected across northeast Oklahoma where winds may gust near 40 mph at times from late morning through the afternoon. There is potential for a rapid increase in fire danger Friday afternoon across northeast Oklahoma behind the dry line. Gusty, dry southwest winds of 25-35 mph during the afternoon will drop relative humidity values around 25% in these locations during the afternoon.
.Today...Breezy. Mostly sunny. Highs 74 to 85.
.Tonight...Breezy. Mostly cloudy. Chance of showers and thunderstorms. Lows 55 to 64.
.Fri...Breezy. Showers and thunderstorms likely. Highs 67 to 79.
