Discussion...
fog this morning will take visibilities to less than 1 mile over
much of central and north-central Oklahoma. A few hours will
experience as low as 1/4 mile, but at present this isn't expected
to be widespread. The fog should lift by 9 or 10 am and give way
to high clouds. More sun today will take temperatures into the 80s
with southeast Oklahoma probably having around 80 in the afternoon
becuse of thicker, lower clouds. Weak upper flow and the position
of the upper ridge to the west of Oklahoma will keep excessively
hot weather away, but a trend towards hot will begin today. By
Monday afternoon temperatures are expected to be in the lower 90s
and even higher by mid-week. The next chance for rain comes
Wednesday or Thursday when a weak wave in northerly flow passes
across Oklahoma in the persistant moist atmosphere.
