.DISCUSSION...
FOLLOWING A COOL...WET PERIOD LAST WEEK...THE COMBINATION OF HOT
TEMPERATURES AND HUMIDITY WILL RESULT IN AFTERNOON HEAT INDEX
VALUES AROUND 105 TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. A HEAT ADVISORY HAS BEEN
ISSUED FOR A LARGE PART OF THE FA FROM NOON TUESDAY-EARLY
WEDNESDAY EVENING.

A MID-LEVEL LOW CENTERED OVER ALABAMA WILL TRACK SLOWLY WEST
THROUGH WEDNESDAY. THIS COMBINED WITH A WEAK SURFACE RIDGE
AXIS...MAY KEEP HUMIDIITY LEVELS SLIGHTLY LOWER OVER FAR SOUTHEAST
OKLAHOMA.

OTHERWISE...THE WEATHER THIS WEEK WILL MAINLY BE INFLUENCED BY AN
UPPER RIDGE CENTERED OVER NEW MEXICO/COLORADO. A WEAK SURFACE
FRONT IS EXPECTED TO APPROACH NORTHEAST/NORTH CENTRAL OKLAHOMA
LATE TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY...AS A SHORTWAVE MOVES ACROSS THE
UPPER MIDWEST. A FEW STORMS MAY FORM ALONG THE BOUNDARY AND SHOULD
MAINLY INFLUENCE NORTH CENTRAL/CENTRAL OKLAHOMA.

A STRONGER SYSTEM MAY PUSH ANOTHER FRONT INTO OKLAHOMA OVER THE
WEEKEND. THIS SHOULD HELP PUSH TEMPERATURES CLOSER TO AVERAGE FOR
LATE JULY. WIDELY SCATTERED STORMS WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE WITH THE
FRONT.
