Its been said of Oklahoma weather (and probably every other state as well), "that if you don't like the weather, wait a few minutes and it'll change". So in order to help keep you abreast of the local weather and perhaps aid in planning your visit, we have provided the following sites:
For the boating enthusiast that wants the most current information on river and weather conditions in our area, here is a link to the Tulsa District Corps of Engineers. All you need to do is follow the link and once it loads you can access real time data (updated hourly) that is transmitted to the corps from each of the sites indicated on the map. Not only does this site provide lake and river levels, but also a host of weather related information.
We have a Doppler Radar (courtesy of Channels 40/29 Fort Smith/Fayetteville, AR) sight located just a few miles north of Fort Smith, Arkansas and it is updated every three minutes. When the storms hit, this is where we turn.
Here are two links from the National Weather Service out of Tulsa. The first one has the current 7 day forecast in graphic format along with current conditions. The second provides data from Mesonet stations from around the area and are updated every 15 or 20 minutes. And finally, the last one provided an interactive graphic format that provides two day forecast hour by hour. The last two links are just pretty kewl.
Here is a site which provides regional wind forecasts furnished by www.intellicast.com. Just what every sailor needs to help in planning his next outing.
