Fairly quiet but hot weather resumes today. A weak area of low pressure sparked a few thunderstorms Monday afternoon but has moved more into the Atlantic. You care about that because we're on it's western side now; the dry side. A few thunderstorms are still possible today but your rain chance is very low. Meanwhile, highs will get back into the low and middle 90s with a manageable amount of humidity. Yes, it'll be a little sticky, but I wouldn't label it as oppressive. We'll stick with a isolated to scattered chance at afternoon storms Wednesday and Thursday as a weakening cold front slides through the region. Midweek highs will remain around 90° with overnight lows, very warm & muggy near 70°. Friday, we'll see the front move east of us leading to substantial drying by Friday afternoon and all of Memorial Day Weekend. It'll take humidity and rain chances way down but leave the heat, which is what you want on Memorial Day right? Highs will stay around 90° with lows falling into the low 60s Saturday to Monday. It doesn't sound like much but it'll be a noticeable drop in mugginess.

Be safe, have a great Tuesday and carry Oklahoma in your hearts today.
