AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORMAN OK
330 AM CDT FRI JUL 24 2015

.DISCUSSION...
A MID AND UPPER LEVEL RIDGE...CENTERED OVER THE SOUTHERN
PLAINS...WILL PROMOTE MAINLY DRY AND HOT CONDITIONS TODAY INTO
EARLY NEXT WEEK. THE HEAT WILL COMBINE WITH ABOVE AVERAGE HUMIDITY
FOR LATE JULY...TO PRODUCE VERY HIGH AFTERNOON HEAT INDICES. BASED
ON MESONET DATA...MANY AREAS ALONG AND EAST OF HIGHWAY 81 REACHED
PEAK HEAT INDEX VALUES BETWEEN 105 AND 110 ON THURSDAY. WITH
SIMILAR VALUES EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON...A FEW MORE COUNTIES IN
CENTRAL AND SOUTH CENTRAL OKLAHOMA WILL BE ADDED TO THE HEAT
ADVISORY.

EARLY THIS MORNING...A FEW THUNDERSTORMS WERE LOCATED OVER
NORTHERN KANSAS. THE STORMS WERE MOVING SOUTH AND EAST AND ARE
EXPECTED TO REMAIN NORTH OF THE FA.  AFTERNOON AND EVENING
STORMS SHOULD DEVELOP WELL WEST AND NORTH OF THE AREA OVER
THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.  A FEW STORMS MAY SKIRT NORTHWEST
OKLAHOMA...MAINLY DURING THE LATE EVENING/OVERNIGHT.

PERHAPS A BETTER CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL
OCCUR LATE NEXT WEEK...AS A TROUGH MOVES ACROSS THE NORTHERN
PLAINS AND THE UPPER RIDGE BUILDS WEST.
