UPDATE: 9:50 p.m.
The forecast remains the same, except that I've bumped up Friday's highs a couple of degrees; expected compressional heating ahead of a slow-moving front is the reason for the change.

Hot, Humid Pattern Continues; Weekend Rain Potential
5 p.m. Tue 2 September 2014
A thunderstorm complex moved from northern Oklahoma southeastward into eastern Oklahoma last night and this morning; only a few Texoma locations received any significant rain, but the system generated a large batch of rain-cooled air that moved in during the day. Gusty winds of about 30 mph were measured behind the outflow boundary along with a delightful drop in temperatures as it moved southward during the day. Western portions of Texoma did not benefit from this air mass change with Heat Indexes at mid-afternoon still around 100 along I-35.
The winds will settle down this evening but pick up again tomorrow into the 20 mph range.
It will be hot and humid Wed-Fri with daily highs in the low to mid 90s.
A mid-level trough moves across the Rockies while a cold front pushes southward through the Plains late this week, bringing an increasing chance of rain. The various models do not agree on the timing or intensity of the event, but they do on the general pattern; expect some showers around this weekend.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Mostly Clear….Lows 71 to 75
Wednesday: Mostly Sunny, Breezy …..Highs 93 to 97
Thursday: Mostly Sunny …..75/95
Friday: 10% Showers…..75/95
Saturday: 30% Thunderstorms …..74/91
Sunday: 30% Thunderstorms …..70/88
Monday: 10% Showers …..71/92
Tuesday: Partly Cloudy, Windy and Hot…..73/93
May You Have a Terrific Wednesday!
