Strong and gusty south winds expected today in response to tightening pressure gradient as surface low moves into Western Kansas.
A wind advisory will be issued for much of Northeast Oklahoma and far Northwest Arkansas with gusts in the 40 to 45 mph range likely with deeper mixing this afternoon.
Unseasonably warm weather will continue for the next several days as weak upper ridge persists across the southern plains.
The upper pattern will become more amplified this weekend into early next week as upper low digs into intermountain west.
Low thunderstorm chances return by Tuesday and modestly increase through mid to late week as a series of upper-level short waves traverse the region in southwest flow aloft.
The upper ridge will slowly break down during the time with the potential for a weak frontal boundary to approach by Wednesday.
High temperatures will be slightly lower with the increased cloud cover but still remain above normal in the 80s each afternoon.
