Area Forecast Discussion

.DISCUSSION...
0Z TAF discussion below.

&&

.AVIATION...
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect the
area through the day on Wednesday with the highest chances in
parts of southern Oklahoma and western north Texas. With the
scattered nature and uncertainty of some timing, some TAF sites
don`t have a mention or a limited mention of rain/storms.
otherwise, frontal boundary across the area may move a little so
wind direction could be variable at some TAF sites.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 315 PM CDT TUE MAY 31 2016/

DISCUSSION...
Most of the convection associated with an outflow boundary, has
moved into North Texas this afternoon. Meanwhile, a surface cold
front/boundary has become better defined this afternoon. This
feature may help with the development of widely scattered showers
and storms later this afternoon into the early evening. Brief
heavy rainfall and gusty winds should be the main impacts.

Other thunderstorms are developing on an outflow boundary from
near Abilene to south of Lubbock. It`s possible that storms over
western Texas may organize by late evening and move into
western parts of the forecast area.

Shower and thunderstorm chances will remain rather high through
at least Thursday, especially across southern Oklahoma. Storms
have been very efficient rain producer this morning and afternoon
and this should continue through late week.

By early this weekend, most areas will see dry weather with near
average temperatures for early June.
