Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Norman OK
504 PM CST Sun Feb 25 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Discussion for the 00Z TAFs follows.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions to continue through the forecast. A weak cold front
will work south through the the area this evening with a shift of
the surface winds to the north overnight. A few light showers may
occur, but chances remain too low to mention in the TAFs. South
winds return during the day Monday with some gusts over 20kts
across west by afternoon.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 350 PM CST Sun Feb 25 2018/

DISCUSSION...
A fairly strong mid/upper-level wave will pass over Oklahoma this
evening. With very little moisture available, there is only a very
slight chance of sprinkles or very light (or brief) rain showers.

Moisture will return in force early Tuesday. There may be some
light rain, drizzle, or elevated showers (or a combination) as the
moisture surges north from Texas. The next mid/upper wave will
approach Oklahoma/north Texas by Wednesday, bringing increasing
chances for rain and thunderstorms. While most of Oklahoma and
western north Texas will be too capped or otherwise incapacitated
(for storm development, that is), south-central and southeast
Oklahoma may see a few severe storms both Tuesday and Wednesday.

After the mid-week storm system moves off to the east, Thursday
through Saturday should be mild and dry.
