WEATHER SETUP

High pressure continues to build across the southern Plains, canceling storm chances and bringing up the heat and humidity.

EXPLAIN

Some relief may arrive by Saturday and Sunday. A cold front will be moving south however it is still questionable how far south it will be able to trek. If it parks just north of Arkansas, the heat will continue. If it's able to swing through, cooler temperatures will be likely by the weekend.
