.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 228 PM CDT SUN JUL 26 2015/

.DISCUSSION...
ONGOING HEAT IS THE PRIMARY CONCERN.

FOR NOW...WILL LET THE CURRENT HEAT ADVISORY EXPIRE AT 8 PM THIS
EVENING AND NOT REISSUE ONE FOR MONDAY. SURFACE DEWPOINTS MAY BE
A BIT LOWER ON MONDAY WHICH COULD RESULT IN SLIGHTLY LOWER HEAT
INDICES. AT WORST ON MONDAY...HEAT INDICES WOULD APPROACH 105
DEGREES...MARGINALLY REACHING ADVISORY CRITERA...BUT MAY STAY
JUST BELOW THIS THRESHOLD. WILL DEFER THE DECISION TO ISSUE A
HEAT ADVISORY FOR MONDAY AT THIS TIME.

SIMILAR TO LAST NIGHT...A FEW THUNDERSTORMS OVER KANSAS AND THE
PANHANDLES COULD MOVE INTO FAR NORTHERN OKLAHOMA TONIGHT. MOST
STORMS SHOULD STAY NORTH OF THE OKLAHOMA KANSAS STATE LINE. GUSTY
SUBSEVERE WINDS WOULD BE POSSIBLE WITH THE STORMS.

MONDAY WILL AGAIN BE HOT UNDER MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES. TEMPERATURES
WILL BE SIMILAR TO TODAY.

TUESDAY...THE HEAT WILL CONTINUE. A SURFACE BOUNDARY MAY ENTER FAR
NORTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS...
ALLOWING FOR LOW STORM CHANCES.

WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL MOVE INTO THE
AREA BRINGING SOME POSSIBLE RELIEF FROM THE HEAT AS WELL AS RAIN
CHANCES. RAIN CHANCES APPEAR TO BE MAINLY CONFINED TO THE
NORTHERN HALF OF OKLAHOMA. WIDESPREAD RAINFALL OR SEVERE STORMS
SEEM UNLIKELY DUE TO WEAK FORCING AND WEAK SHEAR. TEMPERATURES
MAY BE HELD DOWN IN FAR NORTHERN OKLAHOMA ON WEDNESDAY...THEN
ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...DEPENDING ON
CLOUD COVER...RAIN...AND THE AMOUNT OF LOW LEVEL COOL AIR ON THE
NORTH SIDE OF THE FRONT.
