Monarchs and other native species need us. Here's how we can help.

Fall is a wonderful season in Oklahoma. It heralds a much-needed reprieve from summer’s heat, the excitement of a new school year, and near and dear to most Oklahomans' hearts — the start of football season.

Tracking 2 Fronts Soon

Another pleasant morning is expected on Tuesday. Here are the details from News On 6 Meteorologist Alan Crone:. It may not seem like it, but the pattern is changing. Our blocking pattern that has been in place for the last several days is beginning to break down. A trough across the Intermountain region will move eastward over the next 36 hours and bring a surface boundary across part of Northern Oklahoma Wednesday. This front should cross most of Northern Oklahoma before stalling, but with very little only minor changes in daytime highs. As the front crosses the area, and the upper trough remains to our northeast, there will be a window for a few clouds across Northern Oklahoma and southern Kansas. The potential for a sprinkle or a brief shower will be possible across southeastern Kansas Wednesday morning through midday. It’s highly unlikely that any of this extremely light precipitation will move across Northern Oklahoma, but I suppose it’s a very low possibility. The front will become diffuse and lose its influence quickly Wednesday afternoon and evening. Daytime highs Wednesday are expected back into the mid-80s, but with north winds at 10 to 15 mph.
