What is the weather like in Oklahoma on Tuesday?

Temperatures are hot: 90s across the state. A gusty south wind will bring in some breeze.

Tuesday evening, storms are most likely in the Panhandle, with a few isolated storms possible in the southeast.

The Panhandle storms pose a low-severity threat.

What is the weather like in Oklahoma for the rest of the week?

The next few days will be warm, with temperatures in the low 90s.

The heat and humidity are slowly building this week, and the Oklahoma wind will ramp up.

By mid-week, temperatures will drop back into the 80s with clouds and chances for rain.

PATTERN SHIFT COMING:

As we typically see, the main jet stream lifts north as we head into June. This is the main storm path, so Oklahoma's organized severe season will come to an end.

We can and will still get strong to severe storms, but the tornado risk goes way down.

Next week, the big ridge of high pressure known as the "heat dome" will appear. This puts us in the northwest flow of the jet stream, which sometimes means complex storms arrive from the High Plains.

These storms could be wind and hail producers. We will see. Eventually, the heat dome usually moves directly overhead, and we shut off the rain and we see our temps spike. This typically happens in July.
