Cool Down for at Least the Weekend
Oklahomans are finally getting normal temperatures after nearly two months straight of heat above 100.
For the first time since early July, the National Weather Service is dropping its heat advisory with temperatures the next week hovering in the mid to upper 90s.
Meteorologist Patrick Burke says the heat could return as Oklahoma is prone to 100-plus degree temperatures through September.
“We can’t say that it’s over just yet. That upper level ridge that’s been bringing us the hot weather is still lurking just out to our west, but this does seem to be a pattern that will last a few days maybe through this weekend.”
Burke says the next few days could also bring some damaging, severe weather similar to Monday night and Wednesday morning.
He says it will still be relatively hot so people need to keep taking precautions like drinking water and keeping cool.
