.DISCUSSION...
One more very hot day expected as temps once again approach
or exceed the century mark across much of Oklahoma and western
north Texas. Although dewpoints are gradually mixing out, it
still appears the area that has been under a heat advisory for
much of the week, will once again at least flirt with the 105
mark again today.

Some signs of change have begun to occur, however. A few light showers
developed across far northern Oklahoma overnight, and a
weak surface front continues to push slowly south toward
northern Oklahoma, bringing rain chances with it as well. In
addition, a small upper low located over Arkansas will move
slowly west and southwest today into Monday bringing some rain
chances to parts of southeast Oklahoma.

All of this will result in better rain chances across the area
on Monday, and with increased cloud cover and possible precip,
some slightly cooler temperatures. This should allow us to drop
the heat advisory after today.

Models continue to flatten the upper ridge early this week
as several upper shortwave troughs make their way east across
the northern part of the country. As this occurs, several weak
surface boundaries will push south toward the area, keeping some
rain chances in the forecast. Still appears that better rain
chances may develop as we get later in the week as stronger mid-
level northwest flow becomes established. This may then continue
right through next weekend.
