SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA. A FEW OF THE STRONGER STORMS COULD PRODUCE BRIEF

CLOUD COVER AND PRECIPITATION HAVE HELD TEMPERATURES DOWN SEVERAL DEGREES
ACROSS NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS. EVEN SO...EXPECT MAXIMUM
AFTERNOON HEAT INDEX VALUES IN THE 100 TO 105 DEGREE RANGE FOR MUCH OF
SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND WEST CENTRAL ARKANSAS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
TUESDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL...DANGEROUS HEAT POTENTIAL.
WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
INCREASED THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE WORK
WEEK AND INTO NEXT WEEKEND...AS THE RIDGE ESTABLISHES ITSELF
ACROSS THE WESTERN UNITED STATES. THE LATTER PART OF THE WORK WEEK
SHOULD FEATURE THE HIGHEST THUNDERSTORM CHANCES...IN ADDITION TO
BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES...AS NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT DEVELOPS
ACROSS THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PLAINS REGION.
