.DISCUSSION...
The large area of rain over southern Oklahoma is expected to
continue to drift east and dissipate this morning. This afternoon,
thunderstorms are expected to once again form across the Texas
panhandle in association with the dryline and move slowly east or
southeast in weak mid-level flow. These could affect southwest
Oklahoma to a lesser extent than those from yesterday. The main
event for the weak will be the front and pre-frontal rain expected
later Tuesday into Tuesday night as very moist air impinges upon
the front. The front is forecast to remain progressive across the
Red River, but any slowing could lead to flooding rainfalls in
areas that have had recent heavy rainfalls. For now, we`ll hold
off from issuing a flood watch until QPF trends become clearer.
Later in the week a relatively weak upper low drifting east to
west across Texas will bring lower, but persistent chances for
rain to southern Oklahoma and adjacent parts of north Texas while
areas to the north should be rain-free in a drier and milder
airmass.
