    Big time cold front about to move through the Metro. As of 2:30, the wind chill was 58 at the Yukon Mesonet site and 39 at the El Reno Mesonet site, so conditions will change quickly.

    Next weekend looks pretty good for that. I need to do the same as well!

    Slight chance of rain tonight, mostly coming up from dying showers coming out of NW TX. This disturbance will gain steam as we head through Thursday and then as we head into Thursday evening, rain will spread across the state from SW to NE into Friday morning hours.

    This will all clear out by Friday evening and should give us a stellar Saturday with highs in the upper 60s with virtually zero wind. It will be a great weekend for outdoor activity.

    Tornadoes have been shifting east. But are decreasing in Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas, while spinning up more in states along the Mississippi River and farther east. Scientists aren't sure why but do suspect global warming. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencet...udy-finds.html

    Tornadoes east of OK happen far more frequently at night than in OK. l suspect a lot of this may have to do with radar and digital technology that spots nighttime tornadoes when human eyes don't see them, as well as digital recording technology that let's tornadoes be paired with damage zones after-the-fact. As for decreases in the plains? ld like to see a lot more years data with modern technology.

    I believe it is a matter of meteorological history that tornado frequency tends to shift over time, from the traditional "tornado alley" , then to the NE/E, then back south, and to it's "traditional" home here in the midwest. I do not have empirical data at hand to back that up, but I do believe that the shift is actually part of a normal atmospheric pattern, not really "caused" by anything.

    Should it be safe to winterize my sprinkler system for the year?

    It is also likely tied to areas that have been plagued by drought like the TX/OK panhandles and western OK/KS/NE. These are areas that are vulnerable to increased desertification if trends continue.

    Looking at records, Oklahoma's spring tornado season was notably quieter prior to 1999. The total number of tornadoes is trending upwards in the state slightly but the month of May has experienced a pronounced increase in activity over the past two decades. I am certain this is partially because current technology is better at detecting weak tornadoes but is that the entire explanation?

    Appears to be our first relatively quiet period in a while coming up. Wednesday looks to be our only real rain chance in the next week, and even that event seems to be trending drier.
