Discussion...
fog will be seen again across northern Oklahoma...mainly north
central Oklahoma ahead of retreating warm front. Some dense fog
will be possible up around Enid...Alva...and Ponca City but do not
currently expect duration/coverage to necessitate a dense fog
advisory.

Will also include mention of isolated thunderstorms again across
southeast portion of County Warning Area near middle-level shear axis. May not be as
organized as yesterday with absence of low level boundary...but
cooler middle-level temperatures could yield an isolated storm or two this
afternoon and evening.

Little change to the rest of the forecast with near average
temperatures most areas and dry forecast until late in the weekend and
early next week with possible frontal intrusion.
