An excessive heat warning will remain a problem for Green Country for the rest of the day.

The warning continues until Friday evening across much of eastern and northeastern Oklahoma, with temperatures in the mid-upper 90s but heat index values again climbing into the very dangerous 110°-115° range. 

Weather Alerts

Please take it very easy if you have any outdoor plans!

There is a very slight chance that a few lucky folks could see a cooling pop-up shower or storm late Friday afternoon into the evening, primarily across far eastern Oklahoma. The large majority of us will stay dry, but any storm that does develop could produce locally heavy rain, lightning, and very strong winds.

There is some minor hope for the weekend, as humidity looks to decrease ever so slightly. This should bring heat index values back down closer to 100 by Father’s Day Sunday. It’s not much, but we’ll take any kind of relief we can get this time of year!
