Autumn officially arrives next Wednesday at 3:21 a.m.

And before it gets here, summer still has a punch to pack. Here is a look at the forecasted high temperatures for Friday afternoon.


The map above is pictured at 1 p.m. Friday. If you look at northeastern Oklahoma, you will see we are solidly in the 80s. By 5 p.m. Friday, our high temperature should be in the low 90s.

But, remember we are in a season of transition, so we will have another taste of fall this weekend as a seasonably strong cold front arrives Friday night. A cold front will be moving across Kansas Friday evening. The front will be slowing down and stretching. I believe the slower nature of the front will lessen the "severe" weather threat for northeastern Oklahoma. Here is a look at the surface map for late Friday and early Saturday.

After a dry Saturday afternoon, warmer air begins spreading back into the region Sunday. This will warm air will add lift to the air and result in numerous showers and thunderstorms.  Here is a look at how radar could look around 1 p.m. Sunday.

Rain and a cool northeasterly wind Sunday afternoon could result in a chilly day or should we say "chili" day. Check out these temps at 1 p.m. Sunday.

Yes, a hot, steamy bowl of chili may hit the spot if its raining and temps are stuck in the upper 60s.  Still a few days to hammer out the details.

Have a great rest of your Wednesday!
