Models indicating better precip chances second half of weekend into early next week

Following is the National Weather Service, Norman Forecast Office’s “Area Forecast

Discussion”:
“Much colder airmass has overspread Oklahoma and western north
Texas this morning with temps some 30 to 40 degrees colder than
yesterday afternoon. These colder temps along with gusty north winds
will put wind chill values this morning in the single digits…
with wind chills in northern Oklahoma a few degrees below zero.
Temps will struggle to warm today with most of the area remaining
below freezing.

A disturbance will drop out of the northern Rockies into the
southern plains tonight into Tuesday and may be just enough to
produce some very light snow across northwest Oklahoma tonight and
some flurry activity across northern half of Oklahoma into the day
on Tuesday.

“Tuesday will be another very cold day with temps starting the day
in the single digits and teens and again struggling to climb above
freezing. Winds will not be as strong… but wind chills tuesday
morning will be near zero. South winds return for Wednesday and
will bring some warmer air back into the area with more seasonal
temps. Breezy south winds and dry airmass will elevate fire
weather concerns. a bit milder weather expected the second half of
the week before a cool down into next weekend.

Models continue to indicate perhaps some better precip chances by the
second half of the weekend into early next week. Will keep low
pops for Sunday/Monday. Still a bit early to know how much wintry
precip may be involved with this precip. Will mention some
rain/snow across north.”
