AFTERNOON INTO EARLY EVENING. ALSO...DELAYED RAIN CHANCES IN
NORTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA UNTIL AFTER 5 PM.

DISCUSSION...
MORE HOT AND SUNNY WEATHER WILL OCCUR THIS AFTERNOON.

PER COORDINATION WITH SURROUNDING OFFICES AND HAVING HIGHER
CONFIDENCE THAT HEAT INDICES WILL REACH 105 DEGREES...ADDED THE
DURANT AND ATOKA AREAS TO THE HEAT ADVISORY. THE REST OF THE
ADVISORY OVER NORTH CENTRAL OKLAHOMA LOOKS TO BE IN GOOD SHAPE.
SURFACE DEWPOINTS MAY OVERALL BE SLIGHTLY LOWER THAN YESTERDAY IN
MANY LOCATIONS...HOWEVER SURFACE TEMPERATURES MAY BE A BIT HIGHER.
HEAT INDEX VALUES SHOULD BE SIMILAR TO YESTERDAY IN MANY
LOCATIONS.

A FEW STRONG STORMS WITH GUSTY WINDS MAY FORM NEAR A WEAK FRONT IN
FAR NORTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA LATER TODAY. APPEARS THE EARLIEST TIMING
OF STORMS WOULD BE 5 PM...THUS DELAYED TIMING. STORM COVERAGE
APPEARS TO BE LOW DUE TO THE LACK OF STRONG FORCING.

PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN UPDATED.
