.DISCUSSION...
Light drizzle continues to expand over central and northern OK
early this morning. Temps have dropped below freezing across
central OK as well, so we have extended the winter weather
advisory southward to include most of the OKC metro. Temps should
stay just warm enough further south (Norman) to limit impacts but
this will be watched closely. Some uncertainty exists regarding
the duration of the drizzle but it should begin to dissipate by 8
to 9 AM. Stratus should remain in place at least through mid day
across much of OK so decided to keep high temps in the upper 30s
for most locations, especially along and east of I-35. Clearing
skies and light winds tonight under the surface high will result
in more freezing temps area wide Mon morning.
Warmer and drier conditions will develop Mon afternoon, but a weak
reinforcement of colder air Tue morning will drop temps a few
degrees again. The next chance of precipitation will arrive with a
mid level shortwave trough Wed, south of I-40 near the Red River.
Trends are suggesting slightly less moisture so PoPs were lowered
ever so slightly. Two substantial mid to upper troughs will arrive
late this week into next weekend bringing another chance for
precipitation, windy conditions, and colder temps into early next
week.
