.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 337 PM CDT FRI JUL 18 2014/

DISCUSSION...
IN THE SHORT TERM WE ARE STILL WATCHING THE THERMOMETER HERE AT
WFO TULSA TO SEE IF WE CAN REMAIN BELOW 80 DEGREES THROUGH THE
AFTERNOON...AND ITS LOOKING LIKE WE WILL. THIS...AS YOU MAY HAVE
HEARD...WOULD BE THE FOURTH STRAIGHT DAY OF HIGHS BELOW 80 IN
TULSA...WHICH WILL BE A FIRST FOR ANY JULY ON RECORD. ALAS...NOW
COMES FORECASTING THE SAD REALITY THAT IS SUMMERTIME IN OKLAHOMA.

BUT BEFORE ALL THAT...DO YOUR BEST TO ENJOY ONE MORE NIGHT OF NEAR
RECORD LOWS AND ANOTHER REASONABLY NICE AFTERNOON SATURDAY. AT
LEAST SOME CLEARING SHOULD EVENTUALLY OCCUR LATER TONIGHT... WITH
LIGHT WINDS AND DEW POINTS SUPPORTING LOWS IN UPPER 50S AND LOWER
60S. MORE SUNSHINE AND WINDS BECOMING SOUTH WILL LEAD TO A WARMER
DAY FOR SATURDAY...THOUGH STILL SEVERAL DEGREES BELOW NORMAL.

BY SUNDAY AND THROUGH MOST OF NEXT WEEK...WESTERN U.S. RIDGE WILL
GRADUALLY EXPAND INTO THE CENTRAL STATES AND TAKE US RIGHT BACK TO
THE ABOVE MENTIONED SAD REALITY OF SUMMER. RECENT RAINFALL
FOOTPRINT WILL LIKELY KEEP DAYTIME TEMPS SOMEWHAT IN CHECK THROUGH
THE EARLY PART OF NEXT WEEK...BUT DEW POINTS SHOULD BE MORE THAN
ADEQUATE FOR TRIPLE DIGIT HEAT INDICES. A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY
WILL MAKE A FAILED ATTEMPT TO PUSH INTO NE OKLAHOMA MID WEEK BUT
SHOULD INCH CLOSE ENOUGH FOR AT LEAST A SLIM CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS
OVER MAINLY NORTHERN AND EASTERN AREAS WEDNESDAY. AFTER THIS
BOUNDARY WASHES OUT THE HEAT SHOULD BEGIN TO REALLY CRANK UP BY
FRIDAY WITH ACTUAL TEMPERATURES LIKELY REACHING NEAR 100 DEGREES
IN SOME AREAS. IT IS JULY AFTER ALL.
