.DISCUSSION...
Near record warmth expected today as high temperatures soar into
the lower 90s across portions of northeast Oklahoma. Gusty southwest
winds will create an elevated fire danger although RH values are
expected to remain just above critical levels. The warm weather
will continue on Tuesday across much of the area south of a cold
front, which will move into northeast Oklahoma Tuesday morning.

Front will stall over far southeast Oklahoma during the day Wednesday
with scattered showers and a few embedded thunderstorms possible
north of front before boundary lifts back north Wednesday night
into Thursday.

Models remain in fairly good agreement with moving strong upper
level storm system out of the southern Rockies Thursday into
Friday. Showers and thunderstorms will likely develop along
approaching dry line/front Friday morning with strong to severe
convective line sweeping through the area Friday afternoon/evening.
Cooler conditions expected into the early part of next weekend
behind departing system.
