Tuesday, October 31st 2023, 9:49 am
What is the weather like in Oklahoma on Tuesday?
A cold and dry air mass remains in place across the state with more sunshine and chilly weather expected today. Another cold front moves across northeastern Oklahoma this morning and will reinforce the below normal highs with blustery north winds at 15 to 25 mph. A hard freeze is likely overnight into early Wednesday morning for most of the area. A gradual, steady warming trend slowly arrives for the latter half of the week along with gusty south winds. A weak front may be near the state this weekend, but no major systems are expected for the next several days across the state.
Trick-or-treaters will need big coats with most of the region in the 30s this evening.

A stout upper-level low is diving southward from Canada into the northern high plains this morning and will help to bring another surface cold front across the state today with gusty north winds and a continuation of sunny, yet chilly conditions. Another freeze warning is currently underway trough the early Tuesday morning hours. Locations near bodies of water may produce pockets of fog this morning with temperatures below freezing. This may result in some localized slick spots on elevated surfaces. If you encounter fog this morning, please remain aware of this scenario. Daytime highs will remain in the mid to upper 40s for most of the area with wind chill values in the upper 30s and lower 40s this afternoon.
Wed Highs 10/31/2023
A surface ridge of high pressure will build southward from Kansas into north central OK tonight. This feature will promote clear sky, dry air, and light winds across the area. Local temps will drop near or slightly above the dew point with many locations reaching the lower and mid 20s overnight into Wednesday morning. A few valley spots will drop into the upper teens.
By midday tomorrow, the surface ridge is breaking down. Southeast winds will return and increase speeds from 15 to 25 mph by afternoon with sunshine and highs reaching the lower to mid-50s. The midweek pattern will continue with gusty south winds from 15 to 30 mph and afternoon highs reaching the lower 60s Thursday, the upper 60s Friday and the lower 70s this weekend.

A weak front may reach far northern OK late Saturday night into Sunday morning offering a slight chance for a few showers or storms, but the probability will remain low in the forecast due to some inconsistencies in the data. We’ll spread a very low chance for precipitation late Saturday into early Sunday, and again Monday.

The City of Tulsa says it’s important to protect your pipes from the cold.
Officials recommend protecting outside pipes by disconnecting garden hoses from your house and installing covers on outside faucets.
Also, if a sink is along an outside wall of your home, allow a trickle of water to run and open the cabinet doors to allow warm air to circulate.

The National Weather Service says when temperatures drop to 28°F or lower for a couple of hours you should bring pets indoors, protect sensitive vegetation, protect outdoor pipes and let indoor faucets drip and to turn off automatic sprinklers.
