Weather Blog: Sunny Skies for Wednesday

News

Weak cold front extending from the low into Eastern Kansas and Western Oklahoma. 

Ahead of this boundary scattered showers and a few thunderstorms were continuing to develop across parts of Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas these showers and storms will remain possible into the mid-morning hours.

The cold front is forecast to become nearly stationary just west and north today. 

This will allow for southerly winds and above seasonal average temperatures to continue this afternoon as skies clear out behind the exiting TROF axis. 

Afternoon high temperatures in the mid-80s to low 90s will again be possible. 

Latest model solutions indicate additional showers and thunderstorms possibly developing out over Western Kansas this afternoon/evening and developing into an MCS pushing east-southeast within the west-northwest upper-level flow over the
Plains.

Another low-pressure system is progged to push onto the west coast Thursday and stall west of the rocky mountains Friday into the weekend. 

To the east of this system, the warm temperatures and southerly winds are forecast to continue Thursday with increasing winds in the 2035 mph range Friday into Saturday.

During the weekend, for now, will leave slight chances on Sunday night and Monday as the upper high begins to shift back east. 

As of this forecast, the greater thunderstorm potential may come at the end of this forecast period as the wave out west finally tries to weaken and move out over the plains. 

This will likely continue to change until model consensus/forecast confidence increases as this forecast package seems more like a mid-June than an early may forecast.
