Weekly Severe Weather Discussion

Severe Weather Discussion for October 27 – November 2, 2008.
Valid: 10/26/2008.

Highlights:

– Typical late October week ahead with temperatures in the 50s on
Monday, warming to the low/mid 60s on Tuesday and then upper 60s/low
70s through Sunday. No precip this week.

– Time change next Sunday (11/02), turn clocks back one hour as we
switch to Standard Time.

Probabilities:

– Severe Thunderstorms in Oklahoma: < 5%
– Storm Chase: < 5%
– Winter Precip: < 5%

Discussion:

Eastern U.S. longwave trof will develop tomorrow and push a decent
junk of cold air through Oklahoma. However, the trof will progress
rapidly eastward and the cold dome will move with it. As such, Monday
will be the coldest day with, Tuesday starting off quite cold. In
fact we might even see a freeze across the northwest 1/2.

After Tuesday, we warm up as a ridge develops west and keeps the area
in weak flow. Lack of moisture will keep precip chances almost nil.
Another cold front may approach the area late week as a trof moves
across the far northern U.S. However, impacts of this front are
currently expected to remain limited.
