Areas of fog starting to develop in the cloud-free areas across northeast Oklahoma early this morning.
Patchy dense fog will remain possible across northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas through mid morning before dissipating. Otherwise, nice afternoon expected as surface high pressure builds into the region with light north winds/mostly sunny skies.
A warming trend will continue by Wednesday with highs climbing into the lower to mid 70s with gusty south winds developing during the afternoon across northeast Oklahoma. This will raise fire weather concerns given the warm conditions and limited moisture return initially.
Strong and gusty south winds will persist on Thursday but with increasing cloud cover and absence of deeper mixing, should keep gust below wind advisory criteria in the 30-35 mph range.
A fast moving upper short wave will traverse area on Thursday in stronger zonal flow aloft. This will allow the potential for scattered showers and maybe a thunderstorm or two with the best precipitation chances over far northeast Oklahoma.
