Severe Weather Discussion March 26 – April 1, 2007.
– Active severe weather days expected on Wednesday and Thursday for the region.
– Temperatures above normal all week.
– Severe Thunderstorms in Oklahoma: 60%
– Storm Chase: 40%
– Winter Precip: < 5%
Since I'm issuing discussions, I'm going to keep this short. Models continue to disagree agree over the progress of the upper system later this week, but the general trend is set with a western U.S. longwave trof and an eastern U.S. longwave ridge. All models do slow this system down, but at differing speeds. For now, not going to worry about it. A cold front is expected to move through the region by Friday with temperatures closer to normal.
Current normal in OKC is 66F and we should stay at or above normal for the next week.
Percentages are set for expected significant and areal coverage. I do expect much of the state to have thunderstorms on Wednesday/Thursday.
