DANGEROUS HEAT INDICES CONTINUE THIS AFTERNOON WITH READINGS IN  
THE 105 TO 110 DEGREE RANGE. THE EXCESSIVE HEAT WILL REMAIN THE  
BIG ISSUE FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS UPPER HIGH CONTINUES TO  
DOMINATE THE OVERALL WEATHER PATTERN.  
 
HIGH TEMPERATURES ARE FORECAST TO WARM A DEGREE OR TWO IN SOME  
LOCATIONS FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, HOWEVER SLIGHTLY LOWER DEW-POINTS  
SHOULD KEEP HEAT INDICES JUST BELOW EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING CRITERIA.  
FOR NOW, WILL CONTINUE WITH HEAT ADVISORY FOR ALL OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA  
AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS FOR FRIDAY AFTERNOON. THIS CAN BE RE-EVALUATED  
AND UPGRADED IF DEW-POINTS TREND HIGHER THAN CURRENTLY EXPECTED.  
REGARDLESS, WIDESPREAD HEAT INDICES BETWEEN 103 TO 109 DEGREES ARE  
EXPECTED BOTH AFTERNOONS.  
 
UPPER HIGH WILL BEGIN TO BREAK DOWN BY LATE WEEKEND AS MID LEVEL  
TROUGH BEGINS TO DIG ACROSS THE EASTERN STATES. COLD FRONT WILL MOVE  
INTO NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA/NORTHWEST ARKANSAS SATURDAY NIGHT WITH  
SHOWER/THUNDERSTORM CHANCES INCREASE ALONG/BEHIND FRONTAL BOUNDARY.  
SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE SUNDAY INTO EARLY  
MONDAY, ESPECIALLY ALONG/SOUTH OF I-40, BEFORE SHIFTING SOUTH OF THE  
RED RIVER WITH FROPA.  
 
BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES ARE FORECAST THROUGH THE EARLY TO MIDDLE  
PART OF NEXT WEEK BEHIND FRONT AS UPPER TROUGH STALLS ACROSS THE  
EASTERN CONUS. AT LEAST LOW PRECIPITATION CHANCES WILL LINGER  
DURING THIS TIME WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR A FEW WEAK EMBEDDED WAVES  
IN STRONGER NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT.
