.DISCUSSION...
Temperatures will be a few degrees lower today behind the outflow
boundary that passed through Sunday evening, however, moisture
remains plentiful and heating into the middle and upper 90s will
still give a chance for thunderstorms over southern Oklahoma this
afternoon. The upper ridge will once again build over the south
central U.S. and the heat will again increase Tuesday and
Wednesday. A heat advisory may be needed by Tuesday and Wednesday
afternoons. By Thursday models now indicate that the upper ridge
moves west and allows weak northerly mid- level flow over
Oklahoma. A front is expected on Thursday with a good chance for
rain and thunderstorms. The front is expected to dissipate over
the Red River region and across the eastern Texas panhandle. This
will allow very moist upslope in the hot airmass over northern
Texas and western Oklahoma areas to exist toward the end of the
week. These conditions will be sufficient for a chance for rain
and thunder each day through next weekend, mainly in southern and
western Oklahoma.
