The heat will build a bit more into the weekend as more 100s work into central Oklahoma. But by Sunday night everything changes for the better.
Until then another round of piddle showers or sprinkles may move across with some cloud cover early Friday but we should still recover into the low 90s many areas.
Temperatures Friday afternoon.
Another round of a few showers or storms will move through Saturday morning and some isolated activity Saturday evening. We’ll bake though, around 100 for many.
Few showers or thunder very early Saturday morning.

Gravy for Monday temperature wise, 80s baby!
Temperatures Monday afternoon.
We stay decent for awhile but alas the heat isn’t too far away. The upper ridge of high pressure out west shifts eastbound and overhead for a couple of days before transitioning out to the eastern part of the country. As long as it’s E or W OK is good to go. When it’s on top, we bake.
Upper ridge out west August 1st.
Upper ridge centered overhead August 7th.
A sign that extreme temperatures may appear again around the 10th until the ridge moves east.
Upper ridge centered east August 11th.
Long term…for the rest of August, models don’t want to give up the heat completely, but there are plenty of signs we’ll stay on the cooler side of things for most days with weaknesses in the upper ridge overhead. I like that outlook myself. Also means occasional rain. I’ll continue to update you as things progress. Hope you are enjoying your summer! -AT
