Welcome to this week’s OU Nightly Weekly Weather Watch!
Oklahoma’s temperatures will be all over the place this week. The beginning of this second week of November will start off warm in the 70s and high 60s, but on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, those temperatures will drop to the low 60s because of a storm system working its way through Oklahoma. This storm system will bring two chances of rain with the second round being severe weather and taking place in the afternoon hours. The rest of the week will cool off due to those storms but as the week goes on, the warm temperatures will rise back into the 60s.
Winter Weather Possible for Northern California
The winter weather has calmed down this week with only one area preparing for winter weather. Portions of northern California is under a Winter Weather Advisory and an even smaller portion is under a Winter Storm Warning, according to the National Weather Service. According to the NWS Forecast Office in Reno, Nevada, wet snow is expected with “total accumulations of up to one inch for communities along Highway 395, with 4 to 15 inches above 7500 feet.” This winter weather should last until Tuesday, November 9, 2021, and road conditions could deteriorate leading to hazardous travel conditions.
Severe Weather Chances
Severe weather hardly takes a break, even during the typically cooler months. The beginning of this second week in November will be relatively calm in terms of severe weather. However, on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, the Storm Prediction Center has issued a marginal risk for severe weather for the southern Plains of the United States. According to the Storm Prediction Center, “hail and locally damaging wind gusts will be the main hazards with these storms.”
