From border to border, Oklahoma weather expected to be sunny and warm into 2012
Oklahoma's weather will be picture perfect for New Year's Day Sunday. The forecast shows sunshine and warm temperatures through Tuesday.
From border to border, Oklahoma's winter weather appears to be anything but wintry through the rest of the year.
Sunshine, light winds and warm temperatures are expected through New Year's Day, the National Weather Service reports.
Calm winds, high temperatures in the upper 50s and low 60s and sunny skies are seen in forecasts from the Panhandle to Little Dixie.
“For this time of year it looks like we're in pretty good shape,” said Daryl Williams, meteorologist in Norman. “Things can change, but right now we're going to have warmer than normal temperatures. It will be dry and mild.”
Temperatures will be slightly cooler on New Year's Day Sunday as light winds will be from the north, northwest New Year's Eve, but not enough to be a concern for any planned fireworks displays, he said. Since Oklahoma has had recent moisture fire danger is low, he said.
And pleasant weather is expected all day Wednesday and Thursday in central Oklahoma.
The trend is expected to continue through New Year's Day Sunday with the high temperature near 50 degrees in central Oklahoma and other parts of the state too. Sunshine and warm temperatures are expected statewide through Sunday.
