AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TULSA OK
246 AM CDT SAT JUL 26 2014

.DISCUSSION...

HEAT AND HUMIDITY IMPACTS WILL CONTINUE TODAY AND INTO
TOMORROW...BEFORE ANOTHER MUCH ANTICIPATED COOLDOWN ARRIVES FOR
THE BEGINNING OF THE WORK WEEK. ONLY CHANGE TO THE GOING HEAT
HEADLINES WILL BE TO EXPAND THE HEAT ADVISORY INTO SOUTHEAST
OKLAHOMA...AND ALSO ADD FRANKLIN COUNTY IN WEST CENTRAL ARKANSAS.

HIGHS TODAY SHOULD BE A FEW DEGREES WARMER THAN YESTERDAY...WITH
SOME SPOTS IN NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA APPROACHING TRIPLE DIGITS. WITH
LOW LEVEL MOISTURE REMAINING SIMILAR TO THE LAST COUPLE OF
DAYS...THIS WILL LEAD TO MORE WIDESPREAD 105 PLUS HEAT INDICES
THAN WERE SEEN YESTERDAY. WITH THE APPROACHING COLD FRONT EXPECTED
TO ENTER PORTIONS OF NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA TOMORROW
AFTERNOON...ADDITIONAL MOISTURE SHOULD POOL AHEAD OF IT...LIKELY
LEADING TO A FEW SPOTS WITH HEAT INDICES NEAR 110 SUNDAY
AFTERNOON. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS MAY ALSO DEVELOP ALONG THE FRONT
SUNDAY AFTERNOON...WITH POTENTIAL CONTINUING UNTIL IT CLEARS THE
FORECAST AREA EARLY MONDAY. IN TYPICAL MID SUMMER FASHION...AFTERNOON
AND EVENING STORMS WOULD HAVE SOME POTENTIAL FOR SEVERE WIND GUSTS
DUE TO THE HEAT AHEAD OF THE FRONT.

BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES WILL PREVAIL BEHIND THE
FRONT BEGINNING MONDAY...CONTINUING THROUGH ALL OF THE UPCOMING WEEK.
THE COOLEST TEMPERATURES SHOULD BE COINCIDENT WITH WIDESPREAD RAIN
AND THUNDERSTORMS THAT WILL DEVELOP IN RESPONSE TO A DISTURBANCE
IN THE NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT. THE BEST CHANCE FOR RAIN SHOULD BE
FROM WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING THROUGH MUCH OF THURSDAY.
UNCERTAINTY REMAINS IN WHERE THE AXIS OF HEAVIEST RAINS WILL
BE...BUT RECENT MODEL TRENDS HAVE EXHIBITED A NORTHWARD
SHIFT...PLACING IT MORE WITHIN EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN
ARKANSAS THAN IN SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTH TEXAS LIKE LAST
NIGHT.
