Last week turned out to be fairly exciting as our mini-severe weather season showed up in three separate waves. We ended up with all three hazard types: hail, wind, and tornadoes. The good news was that it brought some much needed rainfall back to the state:
The Jetstream for the week ahead shows a fairly quiet pattern for Oklahoma, while most of the action moves quickly across the northern states. The two weak disturbances that come close will drive in a couple of weak cold fronts. Those will spark a few showers at least. Also this pattern is favorable for mild temperatures as indicated in the 850 temp anomaly animation with all of the red (above normal) colors swinging through the rest of the month.
The first round of a few light showers or thundershowers will be mostly across the E half of the state on Wednesday. Don’t look for much in the way of rain. Another brief round of showers will occur Friday and again Sunday night into Monday. Overall, rainfall amounts look pretty sad.
The temperatures are going to be awesome! Have I mentioned how much I love October! This is why…hope you enjoy it as much as I do! -AT
