.DISCUSSION...
Warm weather will continue with upper ridge solidly over the
Plains. Mesonet shows that many stations over north central and
eastern Oklahoma have reached heat index values of 105 today
already. With the forecast heat index values tomorrow, we will
extend the heat advisory through tomorrow afternoon and expand it
farther west to include the Oklahoma City metro area. The high
dewpoints will keep the actual temperature a little lower than we
would expect under this strong of a ridge, but that will still
keep the heat index values up to advisory criteria. By Sunday and
early next week, mid-level heights lower some as primary ridge
axis shifts west. Temperatures will not be quite as hot, and some
thunderstorm chances will return.
