PM Update: Clouds on their way out!
Pretty sweet Thursday and Friday; weekend rain chance
We're finally climbing out of the cool and gloomy weather of recently, and a few spots have even seen a hint or two of sunshine today. Highs are still below average, ranging from near 60 into the mid-60s this afternoon most spots. But by tomorrow, we'll see sun return and temperatures rise back near and above normal levels for this time of year. Nice weather continues through Friday before clouds and a risk of rain return for the weekend.
Through Tonight: Skies remain mostly cloudy through this evening and there is a slight risk of an isolated shower, though most spots will stay dry. As we head through the night skies will begin to clear and by morning we should be partly cloudy (or heading mostly clear). Lows fall to near 50 in the cooler suburbs to the mid-or-upper 50s downtown.
Tomorrow (Thursday): That big ball of glowing gas known as the sun returns to our skies tomorrow, and temperatures respond by warming above what we've seen since late last week. Average highs are now in the mid-70s across the area -- we look to surpass that on Thursday with readings rising to near 80 or into the lower 80s. A light north wind should add a pleasant feel to the air.
High risk of severe: After 29 preliminary reports of tornadoes yesterday, the threat shifts east into the heart of Oklahoma today. There is a high risk of severe weather across the state -- a rather rare occurrence in a given year, but one of multiple so far this season. As the event unfolds, KOCO will live broadcast online and you can view programming on their Web site.
