Lake Tenkiller Elite Forecast

The remnants of Imelda will cause some rain issues during the final three days of the tournament, but we should stay dry throughout the fishing day today. The above image shows rainfall estimates of over 1/2-inch to nearly 1-inch for the area in eastern Oklahoma with most of that falling on Friday. I'm afraid that totals are being underestimated, but let's hope I am wrong.

TODAY:
Weather for the remainder of the fishing day looks to be partly cloudy as we'll have some clouds move in from the remnants of Imelda, along with southeasterly winds at 5-10 MPH. Afternoon highs will top out around 85 degrees with dewpoints close to 70 degrees, making the heat index reach close to 90 degrees. There is a very, very small chance of a shower or thunderstorm after 3:00 pm, but those chances are only around 20%.

FRIDAY:
Rain chances will be much higher on Friday as the remnants of Imelda will be accelerating to the north and moving into the area. Skies will be mostly cloudy and we can expect periods of rain and a few claps of thunder. Some of that rain may be heavy at times. Temperatures will only climb from the upper 60s to the lower 70s throughout the fishing day. Dewpoints will be in the lower 70s and winds will be out of the south-southeast at 5-10 MPH.

SATURDAY:
The remnants of Imelda will keep a chance of rain throughout the fishing day with skies remaining mostly cloudy. While rain will not be an issue for the entire day, a scattered shower or thunderstorms could occur at any time. Take-off temperatures will be in the lower 70s and the daytime high will top out in the upper 70s. Winds will be out of the south at 5-10 MPH with dewpoints in the lower 70s. The chance of rain will be around 40%.

SUNDAY:
A pretty-similar forecast to Saturday... There will be a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the day due to what is left of Imelda, topping out at 40%. There will be more clouds than sun with temperatures starting off in the lower 70s at take-off and topping out in the upper 70s. Dewpoints will be in the lower 70s and winds will be out of the south at 5-10 MPH.
