515 PM CT Oklahoma Weather Update (12/15/2011)


This evening a surface cold front was stretched across central and southeast Texas. High pressure behind the front will support continued northerly winds at speeds generally less than 15 mph. Temperatures will fall into the 30s by 7 to 8 PM CST this evening. Meanwhile, rain will fall across southeast Oklahoma, as an upper level trough passes along and north of the surface front. At 5 PM, rain was falling to the south of a line from Henrietta Texas to Sulphur and Coalgate Oklahoma. Rain will accumulate at rates of one tenth of an inch per hour or less. The back edge of the rain is expected to persist in about the same location through midnight. Then the weather system will begin to move eastward out of Oklahoma and North Texas. Locations north of Interstate 44 will see much less cloud cover.
