TULSA – The entire Arkansas River Valley continues to feel more like a coastal community this week, as humidity persists along with temperatures in the high sixties.
“Southerly winds will gust to around 30 miles an hour across parts of northeast Oklahoma and far northwest Arkansas.” the National Weather Service forecast office said Monday morning. “The winds will shift to the southwest and gradually diminish later today as a weak surface trough moves across the area.”
Rain is expected to move in with a storm system on Thursday and Friday, however most of us can expect temperatures in the 50’s and 60’s to persist through the latter part of the week.
The record temperature for January 7th in Fort Smith was set in 1906 when the high for the day was recorded at 76 degrees.
