Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Norman OK 
255 PM CST Mon Jan 22 2018 


Discussion... 
the main concerns the rest of this week will be fire weather. 


Strong winds this afternoon will continue for a few more hours but 
are expected to diminish this evening. With this in mind will make 
no changes to the current Wind Advisory that GOES through 0z. 


Models show southerly winds will return to the area Wednesday before 
shifting again Friday when another cold front moves across the 
region. Moisture will increase across at least portions of the fa 
late this week ahead of the cold front. With the increasing moisture 
and front, showers and a few storms could be possible in southeast portions 
of the fa Friday into Saturday. Other than these rain chances, the 
forecast will be dry for most through at least early next week. 


Temperatures will remain above normal through Friday, with highs in 
the 60s late in the work week. The air behind the cold front looks 
like it will not be extremely cold but will knock temperatures back 
down closer to normal over the weekend. 


Fire weather... 
elevated to near critical fire weather conditions are expected 
through Friday, mainly across portions of western OK and western 
North Texas. Minimum relative humidity values will likely drop near and below 20 
percent each afternoon. Relatively light northwest winds are expected 
across the area Tuesday with southerly winds returning Wednesday. 
S to SW winds will likely be breezy Thursday and Friday. A wind 
shift to the northwest will occur Friday. Fire weather concerns are 
currently forecast to be low for the weekend.
