a front will move into northern Oklahoma early Sunday and bring a
little cooler weather with it. However, temperatures south of the
front are expected to be about as hot as today and in some zone of
central or southern Oklahoma ahead of the front may excede today's
afternoon temperatures. The heat advisory has been extended
through the daytime on Sunday for part of southern Oklahoma and
northern Texas. Isolated thunderstorms are expected along the
front as it moves south through the day. The stalling of this
front south of the Red River Monday night will provide a focus for
a much better chance for rain and thunderstorms early Tuesday.
These will likely be concentrated in western and southwestern
Oklahoma in the upslope boundary flow into the front. Weak middle-
level flow from the northwest will help bring a stronger front
into Oklahoma Wednesday. This is expected to be accompained by an
upper-level trough and plentiful moisture for more widespread rain
and a cooler airmass. Lesser rain chances will continue Thursday
when the front is likely still present. After a mild and cloudy
middle-week, a slow warming trend begins into next weekend.
