Wednesday Evening December 28th Update – Staying Quiet for the Next Few Days

Good Wednesday evening, everyone. We kept things quiet again today with temperatures topping out in the middle to upper 50s. That’s not a bad December day around here! We do have a few systems we’re watching over the next several days, but we’re keeping the radar below quiet for tonight…

With quiet skies and a northwest breeze tonight, we’ll have Thursday lows starting cold around 30°. We’ll be a little cooler for Thursday afternoon, but we’re still looking at a pretty good day. With mostly sunny skies, afternoon highs will top out in the middle 40s…

We’ll stay quiet again for Friday with highs back near 50° under mostly sunny skies. Going into the holiday weekend, we’ll have a system coming out from the west. You can see the shortwave (the kink in the height line in northwestern Oklahoma) on the map below as we go into Saturday night and early Sunday morning…

That wave could kick up some showers late Saturday afternoon through Saturday evening and into Sunday morning…

We’re not talking about a big rain maker or a big system as we ring in 2017, but we could have a few showers around. Highs for both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day should be right around 50°. After that waves kick out of here, our next front will work in from the northwest as we go into Monday…

This could give us a few rain showers on Monday and maybe a few snow showers late Tuesday as it passes through. Behind the front, we’ll have the Arctic air working back in as we go into Wednesday. With the way Wednesday looks, we could start around 13° and have highs only go into the middle and upper 20s…

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Based off of the HP(Heady Pattern)

SLIGHT CHANCES:  MEAN IT IS A WEAKER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US SCATTERED SHOWERS OR SNOW SHOWERS. 

IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT:  THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM

January 5th-8th:  The rest of the week will be mainly cold and dry until rain chances return on Saturday.

January 9th-15th:  A cold start to the week with rain and snow chances by the middle of the week.  Cold and dry the rest of the week.
