Weather Blog: Rain chances increase towards the weekend


A warm day with low dewpoints will make it very pleasant to be outdoors, but unfortunately, all good things must come to an end.

The transition back to more typical summer time heat and humidity will occur over the next couple of days, and a more unsettled weather pattern is expected late in the weekend into the first half of next week.

Elevated showers and thunderstorms are possible late tonight into Friday morning, with the best chances across northeast Oklahoma. The severe threat will be limited by lower end instability forecast. Storms are expected again Friday night but should be farther north into Kansas/Missouri with the warm mid level temps over our area.

Saturday may be the toastiest day of the forecast before more changes come. The European model has been advertising for several runs that storms will form to our north Saturday afternoon and push south and east into the forecast area as one or more complexes.

Scattered storm chances continue into Sunday and Monday with increased MCS potential shown again Tuesday.
