The Heat Marches On

After storms pounded parts of eastern Oklahoma Wednesday, the system that brought the rain won't provide much relief from soaring temperatures. Thursday afternoon highs will be near the normal mid-July reading of 94. The temperature will be closing in on 100 Friday and Saturday, but it doesn't look like we will be dealing with record heat (Friday: 108, Saturday: 106). However, with higher humidity, heat index values will push the "feels like" temperature to 105-108. Sunday, the first in series of fronts will arrive late in the day a few storms are possible, but the chance for rain looks very low...only around 20 percent at this time.
