.DISCUSSION...
Busy night and going forecast is in overall good shape. Will make
some tweaks to the weekend grids based on trends, but overall, do
not anticipate many changes.

Widespread showers and thunderstorms will continue to impact much
of Oklahoma and western north Texas through this morning. As the
upper low shifts slowly east today, the surface cold front will
begin to make eastward progress, shifting the heaviest precip into
eastern Oklahoma by late today. Before this occurs there will
remain the potential for additional strong to severe storms
Saturday afternoon, mainly along and east of I-35, along with
potential for flash flooding.

Some areas of light to moderate rain may persist into tonight,
but the heaviest rains should shift east of the area. However,
anticipate maintaining flood watch through 12z Sunday at this
point.

As upper low come out late tonight into Sunday morning, there
could be some light snow mix with the rain or perhaps temporarily
change over to all snow across northwest Oklahoma. Still do not
expect any snow accumulations.

Another cold, blustery day Sunday before milder weather early
next week. Models continue to amplify shortwave for mid-week with
another strong cold front for early May. After Wednesday, expect a
more tranquil period for the end of the week into the following
weekend.
