It will be a bit cooler across the north today, thanks to clouds and thunderstorm outflow from early morning storms. Farther south, the excessive heat warning remains in effect. Expect heat index values around 105F across the north, with values closer to 110F across the south.
Showers and thunderstorms are developing along an outflow boundary from northwest Arkansas into northeast Oklahoma. The better coverage of storms will be along and south of this boundary, roughly south and east of I-44. The strongest storms will have the potential for locally damaging winds and heavy downpours, which may cause brief flash flooding.
