LAWTON, Okla. (TNN) -

The remainder of the forecast period looks to be fairly quiet with a gradual warming trend as high pressure takes control of the forecast. Expect sunny skies for today with highs in the mid 50s. Light west to southwest winds at 5 to 15mph. Cloud cover will increase late tonight. As it does temperatures to start Friday morning will be somewhat mild.. expect low to mid 30s before sunrise tomorrow. We’re trending dry as a whole tomorrow with a mix of sun and clouds. Extra cloud cover won’t impact our temperatures tomorrow as highs will still rise into the upper 50s and low to mid 60s. A late night cold front will turn winds towards the northwest at 10 to 20mph with gusts higher. Timing of the cold front will move through overnight into Saturday.

This will allow for slightly cooler weather on Saturday. Very (very) limited moisture will return back into the area as this system passes. This will likely not produce any rain showers so expected things to remain dry. With that being said moisture content will be very high in the southeast part of the state and could interact and produce a few light rain showers. I expect most, if not all, of Texoma will stay dry as the threat for rain stays confined to the southeastern side of the state but a few light showers along highway-81 cant be ruled out completely.

Highs will drop into the upper 40s to low 50s on Saturday but anticipate sunny skies. Sunshine will dominate on Sunday too with highs rising back into the mid to upper 50s. This as upper riding (high pressure) returns. This is when the real warming trend will start. By Monday (the first official day of Winter) will see daytime highs as much as 10 degrees warmer than average.

Our next big cold front arrives just in time for Christmas. It’ll arrive during the day on Wednesday (the 23rd) allowing for temperatures to drop into the mid 50s. Much colder air will arrive on Christmas Eve with highs only in the 40s. By Christmas Day things are trending dry and sunny with temperatures in the 50s. Any precipitation probabilities with the front stays east of our area.
