AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORMAN OK
957 AM CDT SAT JUL 25 2015

.UPDATE...
THINGS ARE WARMING UP QUICKLY THIS MORNING. ONLY MINOR TWEAKS TO
THE FORECAST WERE MADE. THE MAIN CHANGE WAS TO UPDATE HOURLY
DEWPOINTS...RESULTING IN MORE WIDESPREAD HEAD INDICES OF 103 TO
107 DEGREES. HOWEVER...GIVEN HIGHER CRITERIA WEST OF I-35...THE
EXISTING HEAT ADVISORY LOOKS TO BE IN GOOD SHAPE AND NO CHANGES
ARE PLANNED IN THE NEAR TERM. WILL NEED TO MONITOR PARTS OF NORTH
CENTRAL OK IN CASE DEWPOINTS REMAIN HIGHER THROUGH PEAK HEATING.
IF SUCH IS THE CASE...BORDERLINED EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING CRITERIA
MAY BE MET WITH HEAT INDICES AROUND 110 DEGREES. PLEASE TRY AND
STAY COOL AND AVOID BEING OUTDOORS DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS.

AVIATION...
VFR CONDITIONS AND A SOUTH WIND WILL PREVAIL THROUGH 12Z
SUNDAY. CLOUDS FROM SHOWERS ACROSS THE OKLAHOMA PANHANDLE
WILL DECREASE THIS MORNING. ADDITIONAL SHOWERS AND STORMS
WILL FORM THIS AFTERNOON AND MAY SKIRT NORTHWEST OKLAHOMA.

PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 352 AM CDT SAT JUL 25 2015/

DISCUSSION...
THE CENTER OF AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL SHIFT NORTHEAST
THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK...AS A TROUGH MOVES ACROSS THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST AND NORTHERN ROCKIES. UNFORTUNATELY...THIS
WILL PROVIDE LITTLE CHANGE TO OUR WEATHER.

A HEAT ADVISORY WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT FOR ROUGHLY THE EASTERN
2/3RDS OF OKLAHOMA....AS HEAT INDICES ARE EXPECTED TO RANGE FROM
105 TO 110. PARTS....IF NOT ALL OF THE CURRENT ADVISORY...MAY NEED
TO BE EXTENDED INTO SUNDAY AND PERHAPS MONDAY.

FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS...RAIN AND STORM CHANCES WILL BE
CONFINED TO FAR NORTHWEST OKLAHOMA...AS LATE AFTERNOON AND
EVENING STORMS WILL FORM OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN AND PARTS OF
KANSAS. A FEW SHOWERS OR STORMS MAY MOVE INTO FAR NORTHWEST
OKLAHOMA.

BY THE MIDDLE TO END OF NEXT WEEK...A WEAK FRONT MAY MOVE INTO AT
LEAST NORTHERN OKLAHOMA...AS THE UPPER RIDGE BUILDS OVER THE
WESTERN STATES. THEREFORE...SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES ARE
EXPECTED WITH A CHANCE OF STORMS.
