Severe Weather Discussion for August 6 – 12, 2012.
– Temperatures will be in the 100-102F range all week.
– Ernesto is not an issue.
– Severe Thunderstorms in Oklahoma: 5%
– Tropical Development: 10%
Not much change from the past few week. Ridge remains just west of Oklahoma and occasionally shifts over Oklahoma. Given the ongoing drought, recent extreme temperatures, and lack of rainfall I’m keeping temperatures near 100F through the week. We hit 105F today, seemingly without trouble. A pattern shift should be in the offering soon but not this week.
Ernesto is now a non-issue as it moves while south of the US.by
