Heat Advisory Continues For NE Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

TULSA, Oklahoma -

It appears we’re in store for another stretch of hot weather for the next few days with a mid-level ridge of high pressure remaining the dominate feature across the southern plains and the state of Oklahoma.   A weakness in the ridge around the periphery and the ridge decreasing strength slightly next week will allow a mention of isolated storms for a few locations across eastern OK.   Slightly deeper moisture is also expected to move across part of the ArkLatTex region into southeastern OK over the next few days.   This will also bring a few scattered storms to portions of far east-central and southeastern OK Friday through the weekend and for a few days next week.   

Weather Alerts

A weak front will approach northern OK tonight into Friday morning with a few isolated storms a possibility across northern OK and southeastern Kansas.   This chance will remain very low despite almost all of the convective allowing models bringing some storms near the area over the next 24 hours.   A few models take the current small disturbance across far northwestern OK this morning eastward near our area later today and Friday morning with a few storms.   While this can’t be totally ruled out, we’ll keep this away from our region.    Pre-dawn Friday morning a few showers will be possible along the Ok-Kansas state line region but these should not survive too long.  Persistence is the rule in the short-term.   This current pattern should break down sometime next week with a possible return to a brief northwest flow around next weekend.  

WARN Interactive Radar

Temperatures will remain toasty with lows in the upper 70s and highs near 100 through Sunday with a slight reduction into the upper 90s for a few days next week.    Heat index values will remain near and above advisory criteria for the next few days and advisories will more than likely be issued on a day by day basis through the weekend.   A few locations may not be included but these spots would be mostly extreme east-central OK.
