Are you ready for another arctic cold front this week? What about another winter storm system? We’ll get to that in a second.
But first, here are the final snowfall estimates for the winter storm that moved through on Saturday. As I discussed in my social media live broadcasts, those areas in E/SE OK picked up around 4″ or so of snow. C OK got a dusting at best.
The next front will drop temperatures about 30 degrees below normal to our north, so we won’t feel the worst of it, but it will definitely get cold starting Tuesday night as the front rolls in on gusty N winds again. A weak upper disturbance will move through the state Tuesday and Wednesday, but I don’t expect anything other than cloud cover with it. By the time we wake up Thursday morning, we’ll be in the teens again with wind chill values much lower.
Clouds will increase on Thursday ahead of the next upper level disturbance which should squeeze out some snow flurries across the state. Models are a little muddled on the final outcome, but the potential is there for another winter storm across parts of OK and N TX on Friday. The GFS American model is shown below. The Euro is starting to hint that direction, as well as the Canadian, so stay tuned for updates!
There is another winter weather signal at the end of the month. Time will tell if this verifies, but I’m watching it!
