Oklahoma Will Have a Hot First Day of Fall This Weekend
September 23 is the official First Day of Fall, and Oklahoma is expected to feel like summer. Areas of Oklahoma could see temperatures over 100 degrees!
The weather has been somewhat pleasant the last few weeks as we round out September. But with tomorrow (Saturday, Sept. 23) being the first official day of fall, the weekend forecast is looking more like summer. According to the National Weather Service in Norman, Oklahoma will see hot temperatures this weekend ahead of a cold front. Areas of Oklahoma could see temperatures anywhere from over 100 degrees to low 90s.
Severe storms will follow hot temperatures Saturday.
As we sweat through the First Day of Fall, we'll end the day with severe thunderstorms in true Oklahoma fashion. Storms are expected to begin around 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon and carry through 2 a.m. Sunday. Storms could produce hail up to the size of baseballs and damaging wind gusts of 60 to 80 miles per hour.
Temperatures are expected to feel somewhat fall-like next week.
As we continue into the last week of September, temperatures will begin to feel somewhat like fall with high temperatures hanging out in the low to mid 80s. But it looks like things will try to warm up before get into October.
When will it cool down for good in Oklahoma?
It's looking like Oklahoma won't really feel like fall until October. The Farmers' Almanac isn't predicting the first frost until Oct. 31, so you may want to plan for warmer costumes this Halloween. Until then, Oklahomans will just have to dream of sweater weather.
