Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Norman OK
210 PM CDT Sat Aug 30 2014

Discussion...
showers and isolated thunderstorms are expected until sunset
across southeast Oklahoma today. A weak and passing middle-level wave
should bring an end to those chances later tonight and Sunday. The
coming week will be exceptionally hot and humid, more typical for
late July rather than early September. Afternoon temperatures will
range 5 to 10 degrees above normals, and heat index readings will
exceed 100. A middle-level wave moving through the Central Plains
later Monday and Tuesday is expected to bring a weak front into
northern Oklahoma. This area will have a chance for rain later
Monday and Tuesday near the front and passing wave; otherwise a
strong upper level ridge is forecast to build over OK from
Wednesday into next weekend with little chance for rain.
