Early Friday morning, a few showers and storms entered far northwestern Oklahoma from southwestern Kansas. Some isolated showers also affected a small portion of southeastern Kansas and extreme northern Oklahoma before fading.

What will the weather be like in Oklahoma on Friday, June 14?

A weak outflow boundary is expected to linger near northern Oklahoma for part of the day. Higher dew points in the lower 70s are anticipated south of this front into the afternoon.

With afternoon temperatures expected to hit the mid-90s, heat index values could range between 100 to 105 Friday.

Some areas may briefly reach heat advisory levels (105 or higher), but the National Weather Service may not issue an advisory as most locations may remain slightly below advisory criteria.

Nonetheless, it's important to be cautious of the rising heat and humidity. Stay hydrated and take regular breaks if you're working outdoors.

What will the weather be like this weekend in Oklahoma?

Friday night, a notable upper-level trough from the southwest is expected to move into the central plains, bringing a likelihood of scattered strong and severe storms.

As the mid-level ridge shifts eastward, it will create a favorable flow for some storms to reach northern Oklahoma late Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

However, the chances for this remain relatively low, under 20% for most areas north of Tulsa, with slightly higher probabilities near the Oklahoma-Kansas border.

What will the weather be like next week in Oklahoma?

By early next week, a mid-level high-pressure ridge is expected to strengthen over parts of the upper Mississippi Valley and extend into the Mid Atlantic, leading to increasingly hot and humid conditions in those areas.

Concurrently, an easterly wave emerging from the Gulf is set to carry deep tropical moisture into the southern Gulf, spreading into south-central and eastern Texas. This moisture is likely to approach southeastern Oklahoma from Monday to Wednesday, potentially causing a few afternoon showers or storms in the extreme southeast of the state.

Expect additional cloud cover from midday to afternoon with daytime highs in the lower 90s. Heat index values will reach near 100.

Wednesday a weak surface front may also approach part of southern Kansas before stalling. The combination of this front and the deeper moisture nearby will bring shower and storm chances into the eastern part of the state for the latter half of next week.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center are monitoring two areas for potential tropical development over the next seven days. One area is near or east of the Florida Space Coast, moving east-northeast.

The other is situated in the southern Gulf of Mexico, northwest of Cancun. The disturbance near Florida is assigned a very low chance of development. Meanwhile, the second area in the southern Gulf has been given a 40% probability of tropical formation.
