Hello, and good evening. We’re going to take a late night look at southwestern Oklahoma, if for no other reason than to take my mind off of the subzero temperatures here in Victoria-Weather’s home land.
At 1253PM, CT, Lawton was reporting clear skies with a temperature of 35 degrees. Fog has built in towards Dallas, helping temperatures linger in the 40s, but the clear skies for Lawton mean there is some room for things to get a bit chillier overnight.
An upper level trough in the Upper Midwest is driving a cold dome of surface high pressure to the south, and will continue to do so through the day tomorrow, but it’s inflection point will be to the east of Lawton, meaning the coldest air won’t move into to town, and a rebound to some slightly warmer temperatures will be easily attained on Monday.

I didn’t expect this much disparity in the forecast today. I’m leaning hard on the GFS, but the NAM is completely off alignment with the GFS temperatures. We’ll see what wins out. Satellite shows that the low clouds don’t have high enough tops to register on the IR satellite tonight.
