DISCUSSION
 
 
ANOTHER WARM DAY EXPECTED THOUGH NOT AS HOT AS IN RECENT DAYS,  
WITH TEMPERATURES CLIMBING INTO THE LOWER 90S BY THE LATE  
AFTERNOON. DESPITE THE WARM TEMPERATURES, RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES  
WILL ONLY FALL INTO THE 40-50 PERCENT RANGE. THIS IS DUE TO A  
SLIGHT MOIST WIND COMPONENT WITH 20-FOOT WINDS VEERING TO THE  
NORTHEAST WITH SPEEDS OF 3 MPH THIS MORNING, AND BECOMING 5-7 MPH  
BY THE AFTERNOON. WIND SPEEDS ARE EXPECTED TO FALL BELOW 5 MPH  
SHORTLY AFTER SUNSET.  
 
IN ADDITION, ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE  
EXPECTED TO DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON AND COULD AFFECT PORTIONS OF  
SOUTHEAST OK. BRIEF GUSTY WINDS, ERRATIC WIND SHIFTS AND MODERATE  
RAINFALL ARE NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION, IF A SHOWER/STORM PASSES OR  
DEVELOPS ACROSS YOUR AREA OF CONCERN.
