DANGEROUS HEAT.
RISK...Significant.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas.
ONSET...Around midday.

AREA AT GREATEST RISK...Portions of northeast Oklahoma along
and west of an Okemah to Miami line.

DISCUSSION...

A ridge of high pressure aloft will provide for sunny and hot
conditions today. The heat, combined with very high dewpoints in

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...

A ridge of high pressure aloft will persist over the region into
the weekend. A dangerous combination of heat and humidity is
expected for several days in a row. Heat warnings and advisories
are likely to continue.

A weather pattern change is expected to start next week. This
change will bring a cold front down into the region by Monday. This
front will bring the potential for some thunderstorms beginning
Sunday night and continuing thru Tuesday, but will also bring much
needed relief from the heat wave.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PLANNING STATEMENT...

The first summer heat wave is well underway. Several more days of
dangerous heat are expected before some relief arrives early next
week. City and county officials and first responders should
continue to see an increase in heat-related incidents thru the
weekend.
