Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Norman OK 
1029 am CDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Discussion... 
although no direct surface observations show dense...or nearly 
dense...fog in western Oklahoma...satellite imagery...social 
media...and inference from observations in the Texas Panhandle 
suggest that there is still a multi-County area of fog remaining. 
Some of the fog is likely dense. As a result...the forecast has 
been updated to include a couple more hours of fog...although it 
will likely diminish fairly quickly from the edges. 
Similarly...temperatures within the fog area have been updated to 
account for a much slower warmup this morning. 


Otherwise...the forecast looks good and no other changes are 
planned for this morning.

Discussion... 
record heat is forecast for many areas on Saturday. Temperatures 
in the afternoon are expected to exceed 90 degrees in many areas. 
Normal high temperatures are in the upper 60s to middle 70s. The 
unusually strong upper ridge will be associated with hot 
conditions today through the weekend. The westerlies finally 
return to influence the weather next week with temperatures closer 
to normals. An upper trough is expected to help a front move 
through Oklahoma late Monday brining a fleeting chance for showers 
in northern Oklahoma. Otherwise next week is expected to be dry. 
However, models hint at another upper ridge building to the 
southwest of Oklahoma late next week.
