Area Forecast Discussion

254 PM CDT Fri Jun 16 2017


.DISCUSSION...
Little in the way of a focus for convection today...however
isolated storms through the remainder of the afternoon cannot be
ruled out across southeast OK and west central AR. Hot and humid
day on tap for Saturday ahead of a surface cold front that will
move into the area late Saturday night and Sunday. Warmer
temperatures...higher dewpoints/ RH values will push heat indices
between 105 and 110 degrees for much of the area tomorrow
afternoon. A heat advisory will be in effect for most of eastern
OK and all of west central Arkansas. Parts of far east central OK
and northwest Arkansas should remain below advisory criteria.
However, should higher dewpoints pool further east...some or all
of the remaining counties not currently in the advisory may need
to be added. The aforementioned cold front will move into the area
late Saturday and continue to track south through southeast OK
through Sunday. Storm chances will be maintained along and ahead
of the boundary...especially Sunday afternoon and evening across
southeast Oklahoma as daytime heating ahead of front may reinforce
convection. Behind the front...considerably cooler temperatures
for most of the area is expected along with decreasing rain
chances. High pressure to build into the region for the beginning
of the week...which will suppress rain and thunder chances further
south. Parts of the area may get brushed by a convective complex
or two late Tuesday and Wednesday nights. However...most of the
area should remain dry as the better mid level flow retreats to
the north...so will keep pops low and areal coverage limited for
now.
