** A Heat Advisory is in effect for central and southern Oklahoma through tomorrow evening. A heat index to 105 degrees is expected. Please practice heat safety precautions when spending long periods of time outdoors. ***
The hot temperatures will continue through the weekend as a heat dome strengthens to our southwest.
Our hottest temps will move in Saturday under sunny skies with a breezy southwesterly wind. A front will drop into central Oklahoma on Sunday sparking a few showers and thunderstorms. A few could be severe with damaging straight line winds.
Cool air will once again plunge over the Great Lakes by the middle of next week and we will get a nice drop in temps. Highs may only reach the 70s by Wednesday with heavy rain possible! Another lovely break by Mother Nature. Stay tuned for the latest!
