7:00AM CDT Oklahoma Weather Update (9/13/2012)


A cold front will continue to move slowly southeast early this morning, bringing in gusty northerly winds, cooler temperatures and increased rain chances. At 630 am, the front extended from just east of Henrietta Texas to Davis and Seminole. By 8 am the front is expected to extend from around Ardmore to Holdenville. After the front passes, temperatures will fall into the 60s. In areas of rain, primarily west of Interstate-35, temperatures will fall into the 50s. So in addition to an umbrella, it is a good idea to take a light jacket with you today.

Through 8 am, most of the rain will be confined to the western half of Oklahoma and western North Texas. The heaviest and most widespread rain will extend from areas near Archer City, Wichita Falls, and Henrietta, Texas up toward Lawton .Walters, Duncan and Pauls Valley. Much lighter rain will extend from Altus and Hobart up through Elk City, Clinton, Woodward and Alva. No severe weather is expected today. However, some of the rain across western North Texas and southern Oklahoma could become quite heavy and lead to minor flooding of low-lying and poor drainage areas.
