Heat and humidity have made their presence known loud and clear across Green Country the past few days, get ready for more of the same to kick off our weekend.

Some early-mid morning scattered showers and clouds across northeast Oklahoma cooled us down for a brief, pleasant moment to start the day, but sunnier skies for the afternoon means a return to that all-too-familiar hot and muggy weather we’ve dealt with recently.

Expect temperatures to eventually rebound back into the 90s for Saturday afternoon, with heat index values surging back well above 100 as very humid air remains in place.

A Heat Advisory remains in effect until Saturday evening, as heat index values could go as high as 105 to 110 at times.

Weather Alerts

Remember, the UV Index is in the extreme category over the weekend as well, meaning you could get sunburned in 15 minutes or less if you’re not protected. Slather on the sunscreen and make sure to keep reapplying early and often!

A few of us were lucky enough to get a cooling shower this morning, and a slight 10%-20% chance for a few additional isolated storms will continue through the day as well with lightning and gusty winds possible.

However, like most days we’ve had recently, the large majority of us will again stay dry.
