Saturday Evening Forecast 1/11/14

Sunday will be windy and warmer with abundant sunshine. Marginal wind advisory criteria may be met around Texoma with sustained winds near 25 to 30 mph and gusts near 40 mph. For now the NWS will not issue a wind advisory with some uncertainty with the strength of winds mainly in regards to how much vertical mixing will occur. Went near or above model guidance highs thinking good heating will occur due to dry soils across much of the area.

May be close to record highs at Oklahoma City of 73 degrees set in 1935 and 80 degrees set in 2006 at Wichita falls on Sunday.

Sunday afternoon and night, a weak dry cold front will move through the area northwest to southeast. Low level moisture will be lacking so dry conditions are expected.

Monday will be mostly sunny but not as warm as Sunday. Nevertheless, highs should be slightly above average for this time of year. Winds will be lighter.

Monday night into Tuesday, another dry cold front will move through the area. Winds will be on the increase on Tuesday and may once again be near advisory criteria. Temperatures may be a bit cooler during the day on Tuesday compared to Monday.

Tuesday night through next Saturday, a similar weather pattern is expected with the passage of dry cold fronts in the upper northwest flow. Dry weather will likely continue along with near to slightly above average temperatures.

There is a fire weather watch in effect Sunday afternoon for much of Texoma where the lowest humidity (below 20 percent) and strong winds combination will be met. Winds actually may be stronger across central and southern Oklahoma, but humidity values will be higher.

There is a chance for critical fire weather conditions in Texoma on Tuesday due to strong north winds and low humidity. Temperature criteria of 65 degrees will likely not be met in Oklahoma, though strong winds and low humidity are possible across the western half of the state on Tuesday as well.
