AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORMAN OK
338 AM CDT FRI AUG 22 2014

.DISCUSSION...
MID-LEVEL RIDGE WILL CONT TO DOMINATE THE WEATHER ACROSS MUCH OF
OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN NORTH TEXAS THROUGH THE UPCOMING WEEKEND INTO
NEXT WEEK. HOWEVER TROPICAL MOISTURE PLUME WILL REMAIN JUST TO THE
WEST OF THE AREA ACROSS EASTERN NEW MEXICO NORTHEAST ACROSS THE
PANHANDLES INTO THE CENTRAL PLAINS. THIS WILL ALLOW ALMOST DAILY
CONVECTION TO DEVELOP WEST OF THE AREA AND MAY AFFECT FAR
NORTHWEST OKLAHOMA THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS. THERE REMAINS LOW POPS
FOR THIS MAINLY LATE AFTN AND EVENING POTENTIAL.

MOST OF THE REST OF THE AREA WILL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL AROUND MID-
WEEK THIS UPCOMING WEEK FOR A CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION AND SLIGHTLY
COOLER TEMPS. THIS WILL OCCUR AS UPPER DISTURBANCE DRIVES A SFC
COLD FRONT SOUTH INTO THE AREA.

OTHERWISE... BEFORE THIS OCCURS WILL CONTINUE WITH HOT DAYS AND
VERY WARM NIGHTS. ALTHOUGH A FEW LOCATIONS WILL SEE DAYTIME HEAT
INDICES NEAR 105 TODAY. OVERALL TREND IS FOR A GRADUAL DROP IN
DEWPOINTS... WHICH WILL ALLEVIATE SOME OF THE HUMIDITY ISSUES...
KEEPING US BELOW ADVISORY CRITERIA.
