AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION

334 AM CDT MON APR 21 2014

.DISCUSSION...
RAIN AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL GRADUALLY SHIFT EAST TODAY ACROSS
SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA AS NEW AREAS DEVELOP IN A MORE ISOLATED FASHION
TO THE WEST. THE UPPER TROUGH PROVIDING THE LIFT WILL MOVE SLOWLY
ACROSS OK TODAY. BY THE AFTERNOON AREAS EAST OF I-35 HAVE THE
BETTER CHANCE FOR RAIN. THUNDER WILL BE NEARLY CONFINED TO THE
SOUTHERN HALF OF OKLAHOMA WHERE INSTABILITY IS MODERATE. THIS
SYSTEM WILL CLEAR BY MONDAY EVENING. VERY WARM CONDITIONS ARE
EXPECTED FROM WEDNESDAY INTO THE WEEKEND. THE NEXT CHANCE FOR RAIN
COMES LATE WEDNESDAY OR EARLY THURSDAY WITH AN UPPER TROUGH
CONNECTED TO A LOW MOVING ACROSS THE NORTHERN PLAINS. A DRYLINE
WILL PROVIDE THE FOCUS FOR THUNDERSTORMS IN THE EASTERN PANHANDLES
OR WESTERN OKLAHOMA LATE WEDNESDAY. THIS WILL LIKELY SPREAD INTO
CENTRAL OKLAHOMA EARLY THURSDAY. A FRONT WILL FOLLOW THURSDAY WITH
ONLY SLIGHTLY COOLER AIR. AN UPPER LOW APPROACHING FROM THE
SOUTHWEST LATE IN THE WEEK MAY BRING RAIN CHANCES AS EARLY AS
FRIDAY WHEN WINDS BRING MOISTURE NORTH OVER THE SURFACE FRONT.
LIFT FROM THIS SYSTEM WILL STRENGTHEN OVER OK IN THE WEEKEND.
SUNDAY APPEARS THAT IT COULD BE THE MORE ACTIVE DAY WITH BOTH THE
DRYLINE AND A FRONT MOVING INTO OK.
