The Heat Continues

Tulsa, OK – THIS OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL ARKANSAS AS WELL AS
MUCH OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.
SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...LIMITED.
AREA...EXTREME NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.
ONSET...LATE AFTERNOON.

DANGEROUS HEAT.
RISK...LIMITED.
AREA...NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND WEST CENTRAL AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.
ONSET...THIS AFTERNOON.

DISCUSSION...
TEMPERATURES WILL AGAIN REACH AROUND 100 DEGREES OR BETTER
FOR PORTIONS OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND WEST CENTRAL ARKANSAS
THIS AFTERNOON. HEAT INDEX VALUES WILL CLOSELY MIRROR TEMPERATURES
AND REMAIN SHORT OF 105.

THE HEAT MAY GENERATE ISOLATED TO WIDELY SCATTERED LATE AFTERNOON
THUNDERSTORMS. THE HIGHER TERRAIN AREAS OF NORTHWEST ARKANSAS
WOULD BE THE MOST FAVORED AREA FOR THUNDERSTORMS. ANY THUNDERSTORM
THAT CAN DEVELOP WOULD HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE DAMAGING DOWNBURST
WINDS.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
LOCAL SPOTTER ACTIVATION NOT EXPECTED.
