Staying hot once again for Sunday – Nick

Good early Sunday morning, everyone. We all had to put up with another hot day across the area yesterday. While it was nice to see lows drop back into the lower 70s Saturday morning, we wasted no time heading back into the middle 90s yesterday afternoon. While most of us stayed dry, we actually had a frontal boundary on top of the region the other day and even early this morning. With this front, some heat and humidity lifted up and got some isolated t-storms going late in the afternoon and early in the evening.

What was interesting about the isolated t-storms was the movement from east to west and northwest. Very early this morning, some of those t-storms are still trying to hold on as they work across parts of northeast Oklahoma and southeast Kansas. The overall trend of the t-storms will continue to be a weakening trend as we go through the rest of the early morning hours. We’ll be dry by sunrise with temperatures dropping back into the lower 70s to start the day out.

Under mostly sunny skies, we’ll stay dry for the day with highs eager to push back into the lower 90s with a light south and southeast breeze at 5-10 mph. Even with the humidity staying relatively in check, it will feel like the middle to even upper 90s for the afternoon.

Looking at the week ahead, it will be the same story once again for Monday. With the upper-level ridge in control, we’ll stay dry under mostly sunny skies with highs in the lower 90s. The humidity for Monday will make it feel like the middle 90s during the afternoon.

After partly sunny skies with highs in the middle 90s on Tuesday, the ridge will shift to our south across northern Texas on Wednesday. That will allow for an upper-level wave and a frontal system at the surface to pay us a visit and bring slight t-storm chances back into the forecast. Even with that change in our setup, we’ll stay hot with temperatures in the lower to middle 90s for Wednesday and Thursday.

By Friday and next weekend, the upper-level ridge will build back into the area. Aside from a stray t-storm chance on Friday, this will make sure that temperatures stay hot with highs in the middle to upper 90s for Friday and Saturday.
