800 AM Oklahoma Weather Update


Gulf moisture interacting with a strong jet stream and stationary frontal boundary…will maintain overcast skies and a chance of rain throughout the day. This morning the front was stalled from Abilene Texas up to Durant Oklahoma…and over to southwest Arkansas. North of the front…the weather was cloudy and quite cool…with temperatures in the 40s and 50s…and northeast winds locally breezy at 10 to 20 mph. Rain and thunderstorms were widespread in the central and northern portions of the Oklahoma City area. Other scattered showers had begun to form in southeast Oklahoma. Rainfall amounts over one hour had averaged one tenth to one half inch. Meanwhile…the air over southern Oklahoma and western North Texas…had become moderately unstable in a layer rooted a few thousand feet above the ground. This layer was weakly capped…and the arrival of additional jet stream disturbances…may lead to scattered strong storms later this morning. Temperatures will rise only slowly today…with very little change to the weather pattern except for the movement and development of thunderstorms.
