Discussion...
record heat is forecast for many areas on Saturday. Temperatures
in the afternoon are expected to exceed 90 degrees in many areas.
Normal high temperatures are in the upper 60s to middle 70s. The
unusually strong upper ridge will be associated with hot
conditions today through the weekend. The westerlies finally
return to influence the weather next week with temperatures closer
to normals. An upper trough is expected to help a front move
through Oklahoma late Monday brining a fleeting chance for showers
in northern Oklahoma. Otherwise next week is expected to be dry.
However, models hint at another upper ridge building to the
southwest of Oklahoma late next week.
