BEAUTIFUL STRETCH OF WEATHER!!!!!

If you have stepped outside any time soon, you realize how much it feels like fall. This great weather will last for a while. The weather story is cool mornings, warm afternoons!Temperatures will start out Wednesday in the lower 60's and a nice afternoon is on tap with middle 80's. Dew points are lowering thanks to a continental high pressure building in, but dew points will rise this weekend. Winds will be out of the south this weekend, and temperatures will rise into the lower to middle 90's. Next week could be fascinating. You will feel the air getting more humid this weekend, ahead of a lee-side trough and a strong system digging into the Rockies. Alongside this, the Atlantic looks to fire off more disturbances that could become named storms.

***Long Range models do not show any extreme heat, but summer will build back in. I do not see any 100's.

Cooler and nice weather building in

A cold front has moved through and is now hung up across southern Oklahoma. Temperatures outside feel good. We will see a high today in the mid 90's, and this weather will continue into Tuesday. We will see quite a bit of clouds today. The heat will build back in this weekend, but it will not be as bad. We are slowly heading into Fall.

RELIEF FROM THE BLAZING HEAT IS COMING!!!!

The heat wave will continue for 3 more days. We will have cold fronts start moving through. I have a feeling we have seen the hottest weather, but the high pressure will likely return. As far as the cool down, we will have a cold front move through the state Saturday into Sunday. Temperatures will become closer to what is normal. Low temperatures will also become cooler. Rain chances will slowly climb, and we will likely see rain by Monday. Rain chances will exist Sunday through Wednesday. Moderate chances will be Sunday into the day Monday.

My forecast is HOT through Saturday with highs around 102. I have 96 on Sunday, 91 on monday, and 93 Tuesday and Wednesday. Winds will shift Saturday night into Sunday, and these winds will be from the northeast at around 10 miles per hour.

You need to be safe through Saturday. There has already been at least 1 death, as a result of the heat. Stay hydrated, cool down inside, and apply sunscreen. It is also recommended to check on family and friends.

DANGEROUS HEAT TAKING HOLD

Dangerous heat has taken over Oklahoma again. This heat wave does not look as strong as the previous one, but everybody needs to take the heat serious. It is vital to take all precautions to make sure that heat cramps, heat exhaustion or heat stroke. it is essential to stay hydrated,stay cool, and realize that heat exhaustion can happen very fast. Check up on the elderly, for they are prone to heat problems. It is the same for children. Do not leave kids in a car; not even for a second. Isolated thunderstorms are favorable across northwestern Oklahoma this evening. Temperatures will hit the century mark each day until the weekend. We could see more isolated storms this weekend.

The Heat is on!!!!

Triple digit weather is coming back with a vengeance. Over the next few days, Dew points will increase, and this will lead to unbearable heat. We will likely reach 100 tomorrow, and this heat will continue through next week. We have had a few days of relief, but the big heat dome is about to take over. Lows at night will increase, and this is a result of higher dew points. Basically, if the dew point is 76, temperatures can not fall below the dew point. August will likely go down as the hottest August ever, but temperatures will start falling in September.

Heat Safety: Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water before you leave the house, and do not wait until you are thirsty. Wear plenty of sunscreen, take plenty of breaks and try to stay inside. It is advised to check up on the elderly, for their bodies cannot take the heat, so they need to stay inside as much as possible. Take precautions before heat exhaustion and heat strokes occur. Stay safe.

Wednesday, August 4, 2010

Little relief ahead. The triple digits will return this weekend, and the heat will last into next week

I just finished my forecast, and we will see a little relief from the massive heat by a few degrees, but with the humidity high, we will still feel like 100 degrees on the heat index. I have a 20% chance of rain for Thursday and Friday, but the showers will be few and far between. Overnight lows will remain consistant around 75, and Saturday will be the hottest day of the next seven days. It will be 101 on Saturday, and 100 Sunday through Tuesday. We should fall below the century mark on Wednesday, but as previously mentioned, it will still feel unbearable outside.


Heat Safety: Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water before you leave the house, and do not wait until you are thirsty. Wear plenty of sunscreen, take plenty of breaks and try to stay inside. It is advised to check up on the elderly, for their bodies cannot take the heat, so they need to stay inside as much as possible. Take precautions before heat exhaustion and heat strokes occur. Stay safe.

Storms on-going across northern Oklahoma

Storms are firing along a weak cold front. The front extends along a line from south of Ponca City to south of Enid to north of Weatherford and out into the Texas panhandle. Frequent cloud to ground lightning, torrential rainfall, and possible small hail are the primary hazards. Severe weather is not expected; however, it is not out of the possibility to see a severe thunderstorm warning. There is a decent capping inversion outside, and this may keep storms from occuring, but the front can lift the air, which would cause storms. Stay aware for further weather information.

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

Dangerous heat to continue before a chance of rain

The hot temperatures will continue. We will see temperatures past the century mark through Thursday. The dewpoints will start increasing Wednesday ahead of a disturbance moves in. This disturbance will likely set off showers and storms, but the best chances will be across eastern Oklahoma. Oklahoma cities best chances will be on Friday, and the chance of rain is 30%.

It is essential to take safety precautions in this heat. Stay hydrated, stay in the house when needed and check up on the elderly, for the elderly are prone to heat exhaustion. Take care during this extreme heat.

Extreme heat to continue/Winter outlook

If you have felt the extreme heat lately, you are seeing what the weather will be like the next 7 days. Temperatures will remain fairly constant. Highs between 100-105 will be favorable. As most of you know, the first 3-4 weeks of August is the hottest part of the season. Low temperatures overnight will not have any relief. Heat index values during the day could easily range from 105-112. This is dangerous heat, and it is highly recommended to stay hydrated, and if possible, stay in the air conditiong as much as possible.

As far as winter, it looks like La' Nina will affect the United States. Oklahoma will likely see an above normal temperature base, and we will see above normal precipitation. With respect to the set-up for the jet stream, signs are unknown, and it will take time. There is nothing set in stone, but La' Nina is gaining strength. The northern plains will likely see a harsh cold winter. We will see extreme cold. Just because an outlook for above normal temperatures is forecasted, it does not mean we will not see some harshly cold weather.

Heavy Rain to move in.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for most of the state. The metro could see another 2-3 inches of rain. These afternoon storms are barely moving, and the slow movement is producing a deluge of rain. Stay cautious and weather aware. If you are driving, please do not drive through!!!! As I type this, storms are trying to go up. My forecast from my previous post has not changed, so I am not updating. If anything dramatic changes, I will update often. Stay safe!

Jonathan

More heavy rain to come, some flooding possible

We will likely see some extremely heavy rain Thursday into Friday. Not much has changed in my thinking over the last few days. Flooding is possible Thursday night, as a cold front stalls out southeast of the metro.

The metro area has seen between 4-7 inches of rain over the last 7 days, and any additional heavy rain will complicate rivers and streams. Stay cautious through the next few days.

We will continue to see disturbances come into Oklahoma through the next 7 days. Rain chances will start high and start to slacken off for the weekend; however, it is not a completely dry forecast for the weekend.

You may have to dodge some showers; however, the rain will be hit or miss. Temperatures will start mild and end up hot and humid this weekend. Temperatures in the mid 80's are on tap for Wednesday through Friday. We will warm up to around 90 for the weekend into next week.

---7 Day forecast---
WED- Mostly Cloudy.High of 85, with a 60% chance of showers and thunderstorms.
THU-Cloudy. High of 82, with a 70% chance of heavy rain.
FRI-Cloudy. High of 86, with a 70% chance of showers and thunderstorms.
SAT-Partly Cloudy. high of 89, with a slight chance of rain
SUN-Partly Cloudy. Hot and humid. High of 93, with a slight chance of rain.
MON-Mostly Cloudy.High of 89, with a 30% chance of rain
TUE-Partly Cloudy.High of 90, with a 30% chance of rain

Stay tuned for updates.

SEVERE WEATHER OUTBREAK LIKELY

I am closely monitoring the weather. A high risk of severe weather stretches across parts of southeastern into central Oklahoma. A warm front is moving in from the south. When this front sweeps through, we will get warm fast. The high risk also lies along the richest moisture axis. DAMAGING HAIL TO BASEBALLS AND A FEW DEADLY TORNADOES APPEAR LIKELY. Initiation of storms will likely form in the next few hours across the dry-line. The dryline is across southwest Oklahoma. Temperatures across southwest Oklahoma are getting hot. Temperatures in the middle 80's. The dry-line is approaching the OKC metro. We will likely see our severe weather between 5-10pm. Super cells will likely go uo fast. Parameters for severe weather are coming together. It would not surprise me to see a PDS tornado watch. A PDS tornado watch is a particularly dangerous situation watch. If this occurs, we will see numerous tornadoes.

We are waiting on the warm front to move through. Satellite imagery shows sun in southwestern Oklahoma. Pay close attention to the weather.

I will be here throughout this event. Stay safe.

DANGEROUS WEATHER THIS AFTERNOON!!!!

I am noticing some scary scenarios for this afternoon. This afternoon could become very volatile. The parameters for severe weather are coming together. I can already see drier and less humid air out on the panhandle, and I can see extremely rich mositure across the body of Oklahoma.

The storms that we have across northwestern Oklahoma will lay out an outflow boundary. A warm front will set up this afternoon. This warm front will stretch from northwest to southeast. Where these features set up will determine who sees tornadoes or damaging hail.

The Storm Prediction Center has put out a probability of a 60% chance of damaging hail; therefore, if your area does not see a tornado, you could likely see damaging hail. This forecast is dependent upon diurnal heating. If the storms hang around this morning, we could see the severe weather risk be lowered. I will have a better idea around noon today. I am going to bed soon, so I can be ready for a long afternoon. STAY WEATHER AWARE. DO NOT PLAY WITH THIS SET-UP. WE COULD SEE DAMAGING TORNADOES.

Have a safe morning. I will see you this afternoon. I will be ready to go around the noon time. I will be set to go fullspeed at 1pm.

Thank you,

Jonathan Dyer

3/8/2010 WEATHER WRAP-UP

We started Monday with light showers across much of the state. Around noon, we started to see more persistent rain. The rain was heavy at times. The wind picked up and the rain continued. As we got into the afternoon, we got a break from the rain as the widespread rain pushed to the northeast, and we were able to dry out. Storms started firing in the eastern Texas panhandle and into western Oklahoma. Rotation began to accompany the storm near erick. A tornado touched down northwest of erick and destroyed a good part of hammon. This tornadic storm stayed consistant for a while. There were times that the tornado would recycle, but for the most part we continued to see at least a funnel. Early estimates of the storm were projected as an F2 rating. It will take a while for the national weather service to get out and survey the damage. This tornado is Oklahoma's first tornado of the 2010 severe weather season, which runs from mid March to mid June.

WEATHER WRAP-UP AT 9PM

I will wrap-up the days weather at 9pm. I am still watching the weather closely. It looks like the severe weather threat has diminished. This is, in part, due to the sun going down and us losing the heating of day. If anything changes, I will be right back.

SEVERE T-STORM FOR DEWEY COUNTY HAS EXPIRED!!!!

SEVERE WEATHER POSSIBLE MONDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Severe weather season is about to take off. We are looking at our first chances of severe weather Monday. A potent storm system will move out of the pacific and be over Oklahoma on Monday. This system with increased dew points may easily cause Monday to be stormy. As I mentioned in my last post, I am ready for severe weather. It is time to get prepared. You need to get prepared by having a storm preparedness plan. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A WEATHER RADIO, GET ONE!!!!! OKLAHOMA STORMS CAN HAPPEN LATE AT NIGHT, AND YOU WILL WANT TO WARNED IF A TORNADO OCCURS. I will be here throughout this storm season. Stay tuned for further updates. I am in the process of starting my own weather webpage. I will have it up soon, so look for updates on that. Stay safe, I will have updates throughout the weekend.

Weather Update- Snow Possible Friday morning

Hello everybody. I hope everybody is having a good evening.I have had a chance to look at the models and I have a decent feel of what is going to happen. Tomorrow will be a carbon copy of what we saw out there today. On Thursday, we will see more clouds as a storm system approaches. Thursday night into Friday morning looks like a decent chance for precipitation. The best chances will be from Oklahoma City and points northeast. Friday will be cooler at 43. Saturday will be warmer, with a high of 51. NOW THE HARD PART!!! Sunday into Monday is hard to pin down, for the models are all over the place. As of right now, I think we will have highs in the upper 40's with a 30% chance of rain and/or snow. Tuesday will be warmer with a high of 50; so as you can see the weather over the next 7 days will be a roller-coaster. CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES!! The forecast can easily change.

Have a good night.

Stormy conditions Sunday, February 21

With regards to Sunday, We will see rain and storms Saturday night into Sunday. Temperatures will fall on Sunday. We will see a high for Sunday very early at 48, and temperatures will fall from there. I have been so busy with school and life. I have been dealing with a lot of problems and have been at my breaking point. Until further notice, I will not be posting continual updates; however, I will be focusing on a storm system that will affect Oklahoma Sunday. If the weather gets bad, I will post quite a bit of updates. Thank you for your support during this tough time, and I hope to be back soon with updates. Severe weather season is almost here. Oklahoma's severe weather season runs from mid March to mid June. Looking at the latest weather updates, it looks like we may possibly have below normal temperatures this spring..

Thanks again,

Jonathan Dyer

POSSIBLE WINTER STORM THURSDAY!!!!

A powerful storm system is located out in the pacific. This system will move south of Oklahoma mid week and will bring in a chance for a winter storm. As this is happening, cold continental polar air will be moving through the state behind a cold frony. This cold front will move through Oklahoma city Thursday. Temperatures on Thursday will be cold. I am going with 35 on Thursday with a 50% chance of rain and snow. As of right now, I will not talk about totals. The storm system is a good three days out and it could easily change, but you need to prepare for the possibility of a decent winter storm. There also will be strong northerly winds 20-30 miles per hour. This will blow the snow around and reduce visibility. THIS COULD BE SIMILAR TO CHRISTMAS EVE 2009 FOR PARTS OF THE STATE!!

Big Weather Changes Midweek

We will be lookingat rain moving in overnight. The mild weather will continue for Saturday; however, it will be mostly cloudy.It will be a few degrees cooler for Sunday. This hails in comparison to what I see happening this next work week. I see much colder air moving in. I also see a chance of a winter mix Thursday. Highs this work week will start with highs around 50. As we get into Thursday highs will be around 40. It will be windy with North winds to 30 mph. and there will be a 40% chance of a rain and snow mix. Friday will be cold with a high of 37. Once we hit Friday, it will remain at or below normal for a while. The Febuary weather outlook calls for equal chances of above and below normal temperatures and above normal precipitation.

Unusual January Regional Severe Weather

This is a much needed weather update. Sorry for the lack of any forecasts/updates. A powerfull low pressure centered in east central Oklahoma has lead to some storms. There has been hail reports and severe winds were reported on radar. We don't see this type of weather until spring, but a huge system that has pounded California has brought storms in. A tornado watch was issued earlier; thankfully we did not have any warnings in the state. This was not the case for eastern texas and Louisiana where multiple tornado warnings were reported. Some of these toradoes lead to impressive damage. There were reports of a jacked semi in Texas.

Update

Quick Update- (READ VERY CAREFULLY)

Nothing has changed. I am expecting the National Weather Service to issue some type of advisory for this Arctic outbreak. Due to the fact that it will be life threatening, I would expect them to make this official to keep everybody safe and aware of the situation. If you absolutely have to get out Thursday or Friday, I would cover up any exposed area to prevent FROSTBITE. This is not the time to be playing around. If you do not heed this advice, you will die!!

...BITTERLY COLD TEMPERATURES LATE WEDNESDAY THROUGH EARLY SATURDAY...

A STRONG ARCTIC COLD FRONT MOVING ACROSS OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN
NORTH TEXAS WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING WILL USHER IN AN
EXTENDED PERIOD OF BITTERLY COLD TEMPERATURES AND SUB-ZERO WIND
CHILLS. THE EXTREME COLD WEATHER HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BECOME LIFE-
THREATENING ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE CAUGHT OUTSIDE WITHOUT ADEQUATE
SHELTER. A BRIEF PERIOD OF LIGHT SNOW... AND PERHAPS FREEZING
DRIZZLE... WILL BE POSSIBLE BEHIND THE COLD FRONT WEDNESDAY
EVENING.

WIND CHILLS WILL FREQUENTLY RANGE BETWEEN 5 TO 20 BELOW ZERO.
ALTHOUGH WIDESPREAD ROAD PROBLEMS DUE TO ICE ARE NOT
ANTICIPATED... TRAVELERS COULD STILL FACE A LIFE-THREATENING
SITUATION IF THEY BECOME STRANDED AND ARE UNPREPARED FOR THE
EXTREME COLD. THOSE PLANNING TO TRAVEL WEDNESDAY THROUGH
SATURDAY... ESPECIALLY ACROSS RURAL AREAS... SHOULD PACK EXTRA
COATS... GLOVES... HATS AND BLANKETS IN THEIR VEHICLE. BEFORE
HEADING OUT... RECHARGE CELL PHONES AND NOTIFY FRIENDS OR
RELATIVES OF YOUR INTENDED TRAVEL PLANS.

THE ELDERLY AND SICK SHOULD BE LOOKED IN ON TO INSURE THEY HAVE
ADEQUATE HEAT. PETS WILL LIKELY NEED TO BE PROVIDED ADDITIONAL
SHELTER WHILE INSURING THEY STILL HAVE ACCESS TO WATER. EXPOSED
PIPES WILL FREEZE DURING THE EXTENDED PERIOD OF COLD WEATHER
UNLESS STEPS ARE TAKEN TO EITHER DRAIN OR PROTECT THEM FROM THE
SUB-FREEZING TEMPERATURES.

TEMPERATURES WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND EARLY THURSDAY ARE FORECAST TO
FALL INTO THE SINGLE DIGITS ACROSS NORTHERN OKLAHOMA AND IN THE
TEENS ELSEWHERE. THE VERY COLD WEATHER WILL CONTINUE OVER THE
REGION THROUGH EARLY SATURDAY. TEMPERATURES OVER PARTS OF NORTHERN
OKLAHOMA WILL SLIP BELOW ZERO FRIDAY AND SATURDAY MORNINGS
WITH LOWS IN THE SINGLE DIGITS TO LOWER TEENS ACROSS THE SOUTHERN
HALF OF OKLAHOMA INTO WESTERN NORTH TEXAS. ONCE THE COLD AIR
MOVES IN LATE WEDNESDAY... TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN
BELOW FREEZING UNTIL SATURDAY AFTERNOON.

COLD BLAST UPDATE

Not much has changed in my forecast. I am still thinking that the Arctic cold fron will move through the metro around 5pm. I also have kept my highs for Thursday and Friday the same in the upper teens. I HAVE CHANGED SATURDAY MORNINGS LOW FROM 2 TO 4. Nevertheless, I expect dangerous wind chills. I expect a wind chill advisory to be issued for much of northern and central Oklahoma. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY HAS BEEN ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN TULSA FOR EASTERN OKLAHOMA, WHERE 1-2 INCHES OF SNOW AND STRONG WINDS WILL LEAD TO POOR VISIBILITY. Wind chill values Thursday will range from -10 to 0. HYPOTHERMIA AND FROSTBITE REMAIN THE PREDOMINANT HAZARD TO ANYBODY GOING OUTSIDE THURSDAY. UPDATES TO FOLLOW.

Arctic outbreak update 1/04/10@ 11:35 pm

The weather models are still in agreement for this massive outbreak of arctic outbreak, that will affect everybody east of the rockies and all the way down to the gulf coast. I HAVE MADE CHANGES TO WEDNESDAY BRINGING IN WARMER WEATHER OF 40 DEGREES. The massive cold air will move in late Wednesday and will last into Sunday morning. That is 4 1/2 days below freezing. It is highly recommended to bundle up all body parts as you get out Thursday, for we will have wind chills between -10 and 0. HYPOTHERMIA AND FROSTBITE WILL BECOME A DANGEROUS SITUATION WITH LOW TEMPERATURES AND STRONG NORTH WINDS!!! WE ARE GOING TO BE DEALING WITH LIFE THREATENING COLD. I will have updates as needed.

POSSIBLE RECORD BREAKING COLD AIR ON TRACK FOR OKLAHOMA!!!!

The weather models are absolutely unbelievable. They continue to bring in colder and colder air. It won't stop and this is making me start to believe that we will have record breaking cold in the state. ONE model has a low of 0 Saturday morning. I have a model that is messed up and not updating. It has been down since Saturday and this is setting me back, but the models that I have to work with are still in agreement of the cold air. HYPOTHERMIA AND FROSTBITE WILL BECOME COMMON AND MAY LEAD TO DEATH AND/OR LOSS OF ANY BODY PART THAT IS NOT COVERED. WE WILL HAVE DANGEROUSLY LOW WIND CHILLS. Tic THESE WIND CHILLS WILL LIKELY MEET CRITERIA FOR A WIND CHILL ADVISORY. The arctic cold front will move through the state Wednesday and temperatures will plummet behind the front. Behind the front we could see light snow and/or freezing drizzle. my thinking right now is that we will have freezing drizzle. This strong cold front will not have much moisture to work with. We may be able to squeeze out an inch of snow in northern Oklahoma. STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES. I WILL HAVE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE UPDATES/ADVISORIES WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE. I WILL ALSO HAVE FORECAST UPDATES 2 TIMES A DAY.

STRONG ARCTIC FRONT TO MOVE THROUGH WEDNESDAY AND WILL PULL DOWN VERY BITTER TEMPERATURES!!!!!

Very cold and bitter weather is still on its way and will move through the metro around noon on Wednesday. Temperatures behind the front will plummet and wind chills will range from -5 to +10 Thursday morning, where we will have a low around 10 and we will not warm up much. Thursday we will have a high around 18. Friday morning will be our coldest; high pressure will make this very cold with a low around +7. Friday afternoon, we will warm up to around 22. The cold air will begin to move out and move northeast on Saturday, but we will still be below normal with highs on Saturday and Sunday in the mid 30's.

BITTER COLD BLAST TO INTRENCH OKLAHOMA THURSDAY AND MAY LEAD TO DEATH FOR ANYONE STRANDED!

Extreme cold weather to move into Oklahoma Wednesday night. Lows Wednesday and Thursday night will be in the single digits and highs in the upper 10's, with wind chills below zero. Friday morning will be the coldest at 4 degrees. This is the coldest air we have seen since 2006 at least. This weather will bust pipes and possibly kill anyone left stranded overnight. Hypothermia and frostbite look likely Friday morning. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THIS WEATHER!!!! This weather is life threatening.

Friday, January 1, 2010

COLDEST AIR IN YEARS TO ARRIVE IN OKLAHOMA WEDNESDAY!!!

Some of the coldest air we have seen since 2006 will take over the state Wednseday. We will have some actic air move into thye state tonight. Saturday will be much colder. We may not get out of the 20's and we will barel war up on Monday and Tuesday before a cold blast mves into the state Tuesday night. This is going to be dangerous cold. We may not get above 19 on Thursday for highs. We also may have lows in the single digits Thursday and Friday.
