Valid: 12/29/2008.

40s and 50s through the remainder of the week.

– Happy New Year to all!

Probabilities:

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

Discussion:

Quiet week ahead weather wise with three frontal passages expected.
The first one on Tuesday will be the most noticeable after warm
temperatures Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday will be cool with highs
near seasonable norms. Thursday will warm back up in to the mid 50s
with a cool down on Friday behind another front. Finally, Saturday
see potentially a stronger front, but right now going with the NWS and
others on highs in the upper 40s to mid 50s next weekend. That also
fits with climatology.

Last Friday night and Saturday were interesting weather wise, with
lots of severe thunderstorms across the state and the central U.S.
Much of this week looks to be quiet other than noted cold fronts.
There may be some action around Sunday, but confidence is low and the
models aren't in great agreement. If anything, impacts seem more
likely beyond this forecast period.
