It won't be dry during the afternoon, but we're more likely to see virga showers (showers with rain evaporating before it hits the ground) east of the foothills.
Partial clearing and cooler overnight tonight with a low temperature in the 40s to lower 50s. This activity should be rather scattered but it is possible that a few isolated storms could become rather strong. The weather should be mostly dry during the morning hours with rain and thunderstorms developing during the afternoon/evening. Chance of rain about 40%. Expect highs to still head into the 80s. We'll more than likely top-out in the lower 80s for most spots across eastern Oklahoma.
However, because of some cooler air aloft combined with daytime heating from the sun, brief, scattered showers, or at the very least puffy cumulus clouds, can not be ruled out Thursday.
Southeast winds at 5 miles per hour.
The same upper level low pressure system that caused that weather is still here today, but it has weakened a bit.
Rain chances each day will remain high at 60% for those scattered downpours which will be possible each day through next week.
A cold front will begin to approach the area late this weekend, and that will help to increase rain chances. More redevelopment may occur this afternoon in spotty showers/storms otherwise we'll have mostly sunny skies for most of the day with partly to mostly cloudy skies at times.
