Very brief update: Strong winds Sunday across weatern 2/3rds of state may very well be first high fire risk of the season. Getting very dry out there again, some places have had no moisture in about a month now. Low humidity and winds to 45mph likely.. could be a dicey time.

Starting Tuesday into Wednesday, maybe even Thursday, a chance of rain statewide. Not alot but at least enough to wet the ground a little (maybe a quarter inch on the average) east of US 75 may get a little more.

Potential major cool snap at month's end. Even though today's data has backed off on degree of cold, I still think the chances are 50/50 of a significant cold wave between Feb. 3-10th. Won't be near the record cold we saw last year but still may very well be the coldest of the season. Could also just graze the area, I'll be monitoring closely. Still think overall, no major moisture events likely for the next two to three weeks, next week may hold some hope for at least something.

Major wind event today across western half of state. As dry as it's been, it will be a miracle that there aren't at least a couple of major wildfires today somewhere in the state. Winds could approach 60mph in gusts west of a Watonga to Lawton line by 2pm. 50mph plus likely thisafternoon west of a Pawhuska to Ada line by 4pm. Winds will subside after sundown. Power outages may be possible. Would love to hear what it's doing in your area. More soon.

Hey, Rocky. I appreciate your posts. It's 44 degrees here in Duncan with a slight breeze. I'll let you know how the wind affects us today. Thanks again.

It's very windy here, 66 degrees, with a haze of dirt and dust in the air. We drove to Lawton, and the wind and blowing dirt made driving challenging. We've probably had gusts up to 30 mph or so.

Cooling off at 5 PM. Max gusts were ~45 mph at 4 PM, clear skies now (viz was less than 3 SM at 3 PM) and down to 25 mph. Can see Mount Scott, 10 miles distant.

I have a ranch and yesterday's dust was horrible. It was like a fog when feeding cows late afternoon. I kept thinking it was smoke but couldn't smell fire. I wonder if it was like that during the dust bowl days.

Wow, there's a 80% chance of rain in Stillwater for Tuesday night, falling only to 50% on Wednesday. After the system moves out, temperatures will still range above normal for the season through Friday, so weather will generally be real nice this week, if the forecast pans out. We need a good rain here, though, since it's been nearly 4 weeks since it rained.

Oklahoma has some of the most fascinating weather in the U.S. Glad someone started this thread! Hope it becomes a 'sticky'.

I work near Fort Sill and the field artillery... today I went outside, asked an employee about the boom I heard, "That arty sure sounded strange." He said it was thunder... it's been so long since I heard the real thing. About .3" of rain so far!
