...New AVIATION...

.SHORT TERM...
(Today and tonight)
Issued at 229 AM CDT Fri Jun 14 2024

The heat wave intensifies today as a mid-summer-style upper ridge
prevails over Oklahoma and northern Texas This will be associated
with afternoon temperatures 6 to 12 degrees F. above late-Spring
normals. By early Saturday morning, a short-wave trough is expected
to have moved into eastern Colorado and the Texas panhandle. This
will again bring a chance for storms to northwestern Oklahoma with
some gusty winds.

&&

.LONG TERM...
(Saturday through Thursday)
Issued at 229 AM CDT Fri Jun 14 2024

The short-wave trough is expected to translate slowly
through the central and southern plains on Saturday and early
Sunday. The upper ridge will be suppressed a bit south, extending
from the Big Bend area into the Tennessee valley. In the
homogeneously humid air mass, the trough will bring a chance for
thunderstorms to at least northern Oklahoma Saturday and Sunday. By
the beginning of the week, the upper ridge builds northward again as
a large upper low keeps a general trough over the Great Basin and
southwesterly flow to the north of Oklahoma. This will maintain the
late-Spring heat wave into mid-week with low thunderstorm chances.
By mid-week a front may move into Oklahoma from the north to bring a
brief relief to the heat and a better chance for showers and storms.
This boundary, even as it weakens, may continue the better chance
for showers/storms into Thursday.
