Chances of Rain move Throughout the State this Week

Today will be warm and Windy with chances of fire danger and gusts of 40-50-mph, but chances of rain will make their way across the state this week. According to State Climatologist Gary McManus, “We’ll have a chance of rain tonight into Tuesday, maybe a few rumbles of thunder, then another chance across NW and SE OK Wednesday night into early Thursday. Now for tonight, those rumbles of thunder will be mostly tame, but on Thursday, we’ll see a chance for severe weather across far SE OK.”

Its possible the NW part of the state could see some snow, “All modes of severe weather appear possible. Now for NW OK, in the face of a strong arctic front that comes through with Wednesday’s storm system, we might see quite a bit of blowing snow.”

Even though the rain and possible snow amounts will be welcomed by all, McManus says this won’t be a drought buster. But this weather, true to Oklahoma form will provide all the elements, “Rain, snow, fire, severe weather, wind, heat, bitter cold…we’re gonna have 2 or 3 seasons all rolled into one in this one week.”
