.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 406 AM CDT TUE JUL 7 2015/

DISCUSSION...
A FEW MODIFICATIONS WERE MADE TO THE FLASH FLOOD WATCH...
WHICH INCLUDE...ADDING A FEW SOUTH CENTRAL/SOUTHEAST COUNTIES
WHILE REMOVING A FEW COUNTIES IN FAR NORTHWEST OKLAHOMA.

RAIN COVERAGE HAS DECREASED SINCE MIDNIGHT AND CURRENT ACTIVITY
SEEMS TO BE CLOSELY RELATED TO POSITION OF 8H FRONT PER
SPC MESO ANALYSIS PAGE. MEANWHILE...HIGHER RAINFALL RATES
ARE BEGINNING TO SHIFT EASTWARD INTO KNOX COUNTY WHERE LOW LEVEL
FLOW IS STRONGER AND MORE SOUTHERLY.

LATER THIS MORNING INTO THE AFTERNOON...THE FLOW SHOULD BACK AS
A VORT MAX MOVES SLOWLY EAST ACROSS WEST TEXAS AND INTO OKLAHOMA.
AS THIS OCCURS...SHOWERS AND STORMS SHOULD BECOME MORE NUMEROUS
ESPECIALLY OVER THE SOUTHERN HALF OF OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN NORTH
TEXAS. AS A LOW LEVEL JET INCREASES THIS EVENING INTO THE
OVERNIGHT...THE RISK OF FLASH FLOODING WILL INCREASE...ESPECIALLY
ALONG AND SOUTHEAST OF I-44.

FOR NOW WILL LEAVE NORTH CENTRAL IN THE FLOOD WATCH AS THE
LATEST NAM12 IS FARTHER NORTH WITH THE HEAVY RAIN AXIS THIS
EVENING AND OVERNIGHT.

RAIN AND STORM CHANCES WILL GRADUALLY SHIFT EASTWARD DURING THE
DAY WEDNESDAY. HOWEVER...NORTHERN OKLAHOMA MAY SEE ADDITIONAL
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS AS SOUTHERLY WINDS RETURN AND A WARM
FRONT DEVELOPS/LIFTS INTO NORTHERN OKLAHOMA AND SOUTHERN
KANSAS.

BY FRIDAY...THE CENTER OF AN UPPER RIDGE OVER THE SOUTHEASTERN
US...WILL BUILD ACROSS THE SOUTHERN PLAINS. THIS WILL BRING
DRY...HOT AND HUMID WEATHER FOR THE WEEKEND.
