6:30 AM Nowcast for Oklahoma City


At 6 am… a dryline had begun to move into parts of western Oklahoma. The dryline extended along a line from near Freedom and Woodward… to Cheyenne and Erick Oklahoma… to near Childress Texas. This dryline will quickly move east this morning across parts of Oklahoma and North Texas. East of the dryline… the airmass is moist with temperatures in the 70s. Winds were mainly from the south at 15 to 25 mph with wind gusts to 35 mph. The airmass to the west of the dryline is very dry with relative humidity readings already ranging from 20 to 30 percent. Winds will be from the west and southwest at 15 to 25 mph with higher gusts. The very dry air will spread east behind the dryline this morning. Wind speeds will also increase today… with gusts to around 50 mph possible. The dry air and strong winds will increase the wildfire potential this morning for locations west of the dryline.
