Alan Crone's Weather Blog: Break From The Heat

TULSA, Oklahoma -

Due to storms in the region this morning, the discussion will be brief.

The front is located slightly south of the metro this morning but showers and storms remain across part of eastern and northeastern OK at this hour.   These should eventually dissipate by morning to mid-morning, but additional storms may be possible later tonight into Wednesday morning.  The boundary will slowly lift northeast by Wednesday morning to midday and our respite from the heat will be over.   A few of the storms may produce gusty winds and small hail.    Temperatures today will top out in the mid to upper 80s north and lower 90s far southern OK with mostly to partly cloudy conditions.   We’ll be approaching 100 by the end of the weekend.

The mid-level ridge that had been in control of the weather is now located to the south and is much weaker.   The front moved across northern OK yesterday on schedule and is now located along and just north of the I-40 corridor this morning.  Showers and storms will remain on the radar for the next few hours before gradually dissipating.   But additional showers and storms should form later tonight as another disturbance moves near the region.  The boundary should lift northeast across our region Wednesday midday to early afternoon with most showers and storms migrating into southeastern Kansas and southwestern Missouri after the early morning hours.   As this happens, south winds will return and temps Wednesday will move back into the lower 90s.

Thursday into the weekend the mid-level ridge is expected to make another appearance across the region.   Temperatures will move back into the mid and upper 70s for morning lows and highs will move into the mid and upper 90s Thursday and Friday.   The weekend will feature metro temps near 80 for morning lows and highs nearing 100.   Temperature heat index values will move back into the 105 to 110 range and heat advisories will be required for part of eastern OK.   South to southwest winds will be likely in the range of 10 to 20 mph.  

Most of next week will also remain hot and dry but a few showers or storms may occur across part of southern Kanas and extreme Western Arkansas.   Typical late July weather.

Thanks for reading the Tuesday morning weather discussion and blog.

Have a super great day!
