DISCUSSION...
FRONTAL BOUNDARY IS JUST BEGINNING TO MOVE INTO FAR NW OK EARLY THIS
MORNING. SHOWERS AND STORMS CONTINUE TO DEVELOP NORTH OF THE
BOUNDARY BUT COULD GRADUALLY SHIFT DOWN INTO THE FA THIS MORNING.
THE FRONT WILL CONTINUE TO SLOWLY MOVE SOUTH ACROSS THE REGION
BEFORE EVENTUALLY STALLING. THIS BOUNDARY WILL BRING A CHANCE FOR
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS AT LEAST PORTIONS OF THE FA THROUGH
SATURDAY. MEANWHILE... THE CENTER OF THE UPPER HIGH WILL ALSO SLOWLY
SHIFT WEST THIS WEEK WITH POSSIBLY A FEW DISTURBANCES MOVING ACROSS
THE REGION LATER THIS WEEK WHICH COULD ALSO AID IN SHOWER AND
THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT.

HOT AND HUMID CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TODAY SOUTH OF THE FRONT.
HEAT INDEX VALUES ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN BELOW 105 DEGREES ACROSS
MOST OF THE FA. HOWEVER... SOME LOCATIONS IN E AND/OR SE PORTIONS OF
THE FA COULD CLIMB TO OR ABOVE 105 SO WILL CONTINUE WITH THE CURRENT
HEAT ADVISORY BUT WILL NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES. SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPS
ARE EXPECTED FOR MORE OF THE FA THURSDAY AND FRIDAY AS THE FRONT...
CLOUDS... AND SOME RAIN SPREAD ACROSS THE AREA... BUT HOT AND HUMID
CONDITIONS WILL LIKELY PERSIST TOMORROW IN PARTS OF SOUTHERN OK AND
WESTERN NORTH TEXAS.
