.DISCUSSION...
A cold front that is unusually strong for late June is continuing
to move south across southeast Oklahoma and north Texas this
afternoon. A few thunderstorms have already formed along the front
in south-central Oklahoma, and more are expected into the evening.
It is unclear how much coverage there will be with these storms,
as shear is very weak, but instability is moderately strong. Most
likely, they will remain scattered, with wind gusts and heavy rain
being the main features.

Later tonight, probably around midnight, there is a solid signal
that storms will form near I-40, mainly west of Oklahoma City, and
then merge into a storm cluster by sunrise. This cluster of storms
is then expected to move southeast across the southwest quadrant
of Oklahoma, south-central Oklahoma, and most of our Texas
counties.

After that system moves out, we will be left under northwest flow
aloft, and it appears that rain chances will be mainly confined
to western parts of our area for the rest of the weekend. As the
pattern changes slowly through the week, the highest rain chances
(though not particularly high) will shift to northern Oklahoma,
and finally to eastern Oklahoma by Friday.

Another cold front may bring more rain/storms for next Friday and
the weekend.
