Statewide Forecast Discussion:

Issued: 09:08 PM CDT (02:08 Z), Thursday, September 16, 2021


Hot temperatures will persist across the state over the weekend and through Monday until a cold front passes through the region bringing slightly cooler temperatures and the chance for precipitation midweek. 

With high pressure expected to continue to sit over the region for the next few days, hot and sunny weather will continue to persist. Friday and Saturday's high temperatures will be in the high 80s and low 90s, with overnight lows near 70. Humid conditions will also persist, with dewpoint temperatures hovering in the mid-60s through Sunday. The Panhandle region may experience a temporary break from the heat and humidity Friday evening as a small cold front has the potential to drop through the Northwest part of the state before dissipating overnight. As is characteristic of high pressure, light winds can be expected at 5-10 mph throughout Sunday, with the exception of some periods of stronger winds (15-20 mph) early tonight and Friday evening in the panhandle.

Expect hot temperatures Sunday and Monday as temperatures remain in the low to mid-90s across much of the state as the high-pressure system remains in the region. Monday night into Tuesday, an upper-level low and a cold front moving through the region will cool high temperatures into the 80s on Wednesday. With this frontal passage, there is some potential for convection and precipitation in Eastern Oklahoma.
