.DISCUSSION...
Easterly low level fetch today will continue to pull moisture
into the area from the Gulf of Mexico around the south side of
weak mid-level ridge over the southeast U.S. This along with parts
of the area under the influence of the upper low to our west
likely to result in scattered showers and thunderstorms again
today. Although much of this activity will be diurnal in nature,
northwest Oklahoma will likely see activity linger through the
overnight period.

Similar situation for Tuesday, before eastern longer wave
trough takes shape, which will allow a weak surface front to drop
south through the area Wednesday and Wednesday night. This may
result in a bit higher chances of rain across much of the area
before drier air works into the area Thursday. This should then
limit precip chances to mainly far western/southwestern parts of
the area, at least temporarily.

Models then develop longwave trough across the western conus by
the weekend with southerly low level flow returning. Some low
chances of rain may linger, but could also see temperatures climb
back to more seasonal readings or even a bit above.
