Discussion...
low to mid clouds cover most of the area this evening...with
higher ceilings across southeast Oklahoma. Low clouds should keep
temperatures from falling off more than a few degrees and raised lows
a bit. Clouds will scatter out by mid morning, with a warm and
windy day expected on Thursday. This will raise fire weather
concerns with sustained winds in the 15-25 mph range on Thursday
afternoon and higher gusts. Meanwhile temperatures will climb
into the 70s to lower 80s, which is about 10-15 degrees above
normal.

Friday still looks like there will be a convective line arriving
in eastern Oklahoma by mid morning. There may be a couple of
opportunities for strong or severe storms with the initial wind
threat in the morning/early afternoon and then a threat as the
upper low tracks across northeast Oklahoma Friday night.
