We had some rain last week— less than an inch— and it did cool down about 10° from the heat stroke August weather.
This week's forecast is mononotonously the same:
Mostly sunny. Daytime Highs in the mid to lower 80's.
Mostly clear. Overnight Lows in the mid to lower 50's.

The temperatures have lowered for the past 10 days 5 - 10 degrees F. from the 8 weeks of 100+ daytime highs during the constant daily Heat Advisories of July and August.
This makes evenings more bearable without air conditioning, although the as-usual early morning humidity near 100% until 10 AM makes it feel slightly warmer (stickiness). And since the temperature forecast will remain much the same until Sunday — when a Northwestern cold front moves into the the area — the two regional maps below should show any changes coming our way
Thursday Sept 23, 2010
The cold front is moving closer to Oklahoma and the cooldown may even begin Friday. Added corresponding frontal maps.

well finally there is something to talk about other than hot and
humid conditions. After one more hot and humid day Friday...things
start to change in the weather. A short wave moving across the Great
Lakes Friday may bring isolated to scattered showers and
thunderstorms to southeast OK and southwest Arkansas on Friday. A weak
cold front will move into the County Warning Area Friday night...and then
dissipate. However...it will provide enough lift for scattered
showers and thunderstorms over southeast OK and southwest
Arkansas...with isolated convection to the south of that area. Scattered
showers and thunderstorms will continue into Saturday over the
entire County Warning Area as a strong trough deepens over the plains and Midwest
A fairly strong cold front will move through the County Warning Area late
Saturday night and during the day Sunday...bringing a temporary
end to the hot and humid weather we have experienced in August and
September. Chance category probability of precipitation will be areawide Saturday and
Saturday night as the front approaches and moves through the four
state area. Not really expecting severe weather with this system
since the main short wave will move north to northeast of the four
state region. Rainfall amounts probably won't be too heavy...but
any rainfall is welcome. Things will start to dry out from west to
east Sunday night and Monday...with cooler temperatures.
Temperatures will be in the 90s both Friday and Saturday for
highs...then cool back into the 80s for Sunday through about
Tuesday...and then we may see highs creep back up into the lower
90s by the middle of next week. But it will be much drier
air...with the dew points for Sunday through Thursday in the 50s
or 60s. So it will feel much better next week than this long hot Summer did.
