Discussion...
hot and dry weather will continue through the weekend in most
locations. Cooler and wetter weather may occur by the middle of
next week.

Today will be very similar to yesterday with hot temperatures and
plenty of sunshine. Highs may be a degree or two hotter.

Tonight through Monday night...overall...hot and dry conditions
are expected. Increasing low level moisture and clouds may keep
highs down a degree or two on Saturday before hotter conditions
arrive Sunday and Monday. High temperatures may take off on
Monday and approach the century mark in several locations. Capping
may be weak enough for a few storms in southeastern Oklahoma
Saturday afternoon into early evening...but did not mention. A
weak front may allow for a few storms in northern Oklahoma Sunday
afternoon through Monday night...so kept 20 percent chances in
these locations.

Tuesday through Thursday...a pattern change may arrive as a cold
front approaches and the current middle/upper level ridge flattens.
Widespread rainfall may occur...though confidence remains low.
Frontal timing and arrival of highest rain chances remain
uncertain. Temperatures may fall to below average by Thursday.
