.DISCUSSION...
A few showers and storms may form during peak heating this afternoon,
otherwise partly cloudy and humid conditions will prevail into the
evening. A stronger southerly flow has returned to the High Plains
and near surface moisture is improving somewhat. Most models
develop convection during the afternoon over the high terrain of
West Texas. Scattered storms may reach western Oklahoma and
western north Texas during the mid to late evening hours with
perhaps a better chance over southwest Oklahoma and northern
Texas.

Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected to form
by at least Tuesday afternoon as a cold front moves slowly
across northern Oklahoma. The front will continue to push slowly
southward Tuesday night into Wednesday with a continued chance
for scattered to widespread showers and storms. Heavy rainfall
and associated flooding will be a concern, especially Tuesday
afternoon through early Wednesday.

An upper low/trough over the Desert Southwest will move slowly
east Wednesday through Thursday before becoming nearly stationary
over South Texas by Friday/Saturday. Therefore, thunderstorms will
remain in the forecast Thursday and Friday for mainly southern
Oklahoma and northern Texas.
