Your weather this weekend is going to be a stark contrast to what you would typically expect for mid May. Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and temps in the 50s and 60s for highs.

Now it won’t rain the entire time and most of it will be light. So it is possible to squeeze in a few outdoor activities, but as of now it’s impossible to say exactly when that will be. This isn’t one of those easy to time short events. Just broad subtle lift in the atmosphere that can trigger just about anywhere at any time.

Rainfall amounts through the weekend will add up to about an inch in many areas, unless you get under some extreme downpours.

Rain totals through Sunday morning.

What I can tell you now is that a few severe storms should develop in NW OK late Friday afternoon and move SSE during the evening. So the W half of OK should see a couple of these work through. The OKC metro is on the eastern edge of this activity. Hail/wind would be the primary concern.

Scattered showers will help to keep temps down on Saturday and Sunday in the 50s. Where it’s not raining, 60s will dominate. Just have a Plan B in place for any outdoor events. Most, but not all of the rain, should occur during the daylight hours.

Temps Saturday afternoon, and Sunday very similar.

Monday’s severe weather setup isn’t locked in by any means. Most models have it timed to occur overnight Monday into Tuesday which helps to limit severe storm potential. One model is still holding out hope for our traditional type storm day. Time will tell and I’ll update you as things become more clear in that regard. Have a great weekend! -AT
