AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORMAN OK
358 AM CDT SUN AUG 17 2014

.DISCUSSION...
THE MAIN CONCERN IS DEALING WITH HOT WEATHER...PERHAPS THE
HOTTEST SO FAR THIS SUMMER...DURING THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS. ANY
RAINFALL WILL REMAIN SPARSE AND LOCALIZED THROUGH NEXT SATURDAY.

DID NOT ISSUE A HEAT ADVISORY AS CONFIDENCE OF HEAT INDICES
EXCEEDING 105 DEGREES REMAINS RATHER LOW. SOME UNCERTAINTY
REMAINS WITH FORECAST SURFACE DEWPOINTS OVER THE NEXT SEVEN
DAYS...WHICH MAY DECREASE SIGNIFICANTLY AS THE GROUND DRIES OUT.

TODAY WILL BE ANOTHER HOT DAY. MORE SUN WILL ALLOW FOR HOTTER
READINGS ACROSS CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA AS WELL AS PARTS OF
WESTERN NORTH TEXAS. USED A BLEND OF GUIDANCE HIGHS MAINLY IN THE
95 TO 103 DEGREE RANGE.

THIS MORNING...A FEW LIGHT SHOWERS AND PERHAPS A RUMBLE OF
THUNDER WILL CONTINUE ACROSS PARTS OF SOUTHERN AND SOUTHEASTERN
OKLAHOMA. KEPT 20 TO 30 PERCENT CHANCES MAINLY SOUTH OF A WAURIKA
TO ADA TO HOLDENVILLE LINE. ANY RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN ON
THE LIGHT SIDE.

THIS AFTERNOON INTO EVENING...THINK A FEW THUNDERSTORMS WILL
DEVELOP DURING THE HEAT OF THE DAY IN A WEAKLY CAPPED ENVIRONMENT.
LATEST HRRR HINTS AT FIRST DEVELOPMENT 1 TO 3 PM ACROSS WESTERN
AND SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA...SOMEWHERE NEAR A GAGE TO HOBART TO ATOKA
LINE. WENT WITH 10 TO 20 PERCENT ISOLATED MENTION WEST AND SOUTH
OF AN ALVA TO CHICKASHA TO SEMINOLE LINE. ANY STORM WOULD MOVE
VERY SLOWLY WITH LOCALIZED STRONG WINDS AND HEAVY RAINFALL AS THE
MAIN HAZARDS...THEN DISSIPATE WITH THE LOSS OF DAYTIME HEATING.
STORM COVERAGE WILL REMAIN LIMITED DUE TO VERY WEAK MID/UPPER
LEVEL FORCING.

MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...HOT AND MAINLY DRY WEATHER WILL
CONTINUE WITH MID/UPPER LEVEL RIDGING. REMOVED RAIN CHANCES
MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY AS STORM COVERAGE WILL LIKELY REMAIN
BELOW 15 PERCENT...THOUGH THERE MAY A FEW MAINLY AFTERNOON AND
EVENING STORMS DURING THIS TIME FRAME. WENT FAIRLY CONSERVATIVE
WITH TEMPERATURES. WIDESPREAD TRIPLE DIGIT HEAT MAY OCCUR.
SURFACE WINDS WILL INCREASE BY THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK.
