Across Oklahoma, highs range from the upper 80's to the upper 90's with some areas in the southwest part of Oklahoma breaking above 100 F. A upper-level short wave is expect to push a cold front across Oklahoma by tomorrow, giving some relief from the hot weather.
Temperatures in eastern Oklahoma are already dropping into the mid 70's while temperatures in central and western Oklahoma are still in the upper 80's and low 90's. This rapid cooling is from the cold front starting to push through Oklahoma and causing a line of storms to develop. The cold front is expected to move southward tonight.
The long range forecast is hard to pin down due to the uncertainty of the track of a tropical disturbance. The track of the system will determine Oklahoma's rain chances espically for eastern Oklahoma as a western track would lead to a higher chance of rain and cooler temperatures.
