Changes on the Way for Oklahoma!


Absolutely beautiful weather for the first day of March. Unfortunately, changes are on the way and we’ll start to see the trend by Sunday morning. Currently moisture is streaming northward into Oklahoma from Texas, as noted by the dewpoints along the Red River. By Sunday morning a cold front will be moving into northwest Oklahoma as two upper systems move towards the area.

Severe thunderstorms are possible for the southeast 2/3rds of Oklahoma but more likely is the potential for lots of rain. That is a very good thing this time of year, as it puts moisture in the ground. Models want to give us 1-2 inches, so we’ll see. The front will clear the state by Monday morning with Monday be a cold and raw day. Winds will be really strong on Monday out of the northwest.

Snow is possible in northern Oklahoma but not sure snow rates will be high enough to result in accumulating snows, we’ll see. March may have come in as a lamb today, but it is going to be a lion tomorrow/Monday.
