.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 326 PM CDT Mon Jun 26 2017/

DISCUSSION...
Moderate instability covers much of the western half of Oklahoma
and western north Texas. Without low-level convergence and without
significant vertical wind shear, if any storms form, they will not
be able to organize. The HRRRX shows isolated storms through the
evening over this area, and satellite imagery shows a large field
of cumulus clouds. However, the latest of the satellite images
does not show any significant cumulus growth, so it seems that low
or very low PoPs are justified for this evening.

As the surface high moves away, the pressure gradient tightens
tomorrow, which will strengthen the southerly low-level flow.
This, in turn, will help nudge temperatures upward over the next
several days...along with dewpoint temperatures.

Strong capping should prevent any significant precipitation until
a cold front moves into northern Oklahoma on Friday. Much higher
chances for rain will arrive with this front, and will continue
through the weekend. Since the front will not move much during
the weekend, it is possible that some locations may receive quite
substantial rainfall amounts.
