Heat and Rain Make for Steamy Weather Conditions

sun-rain.png


Strong to severe storms are pushing through far northeast Oklahoma
early this morning. The main threat with these storms is
marginally severe hail and isolated damaging wind gusts. These
storms are expected to gradually weaken through the morning. It`s
possible that more storms will develop later this morning or
during the afternoon along the outflow boundary. Another round of
storms is likely tonight and heavy rain or flash flooding will be
possible. The airmass is very moist and there is a potential for
storms to redevelop across the same areas. The heavy rain threat
will likely hold off until after 9 PM.

Dangerous heat will again develop this afternoon, with a heat
advisory in effect this afternoon and evening. Heat index values
will range from 105 to 110 degrees for much of eastern Oklahoma
and portions of west central Arkansas.


Monday and Tuesday will be hot and humid with heat advisories
needed for portions of the area both days. The chance for showers
and storms will increase by midweek as a front settles into the
region and provides a focus for rain. Below normal temperatures
are expected beginning Wednesday through the end of the week.
