.DISCUSSION...
Showers and thunderstorms are expected to move to the east and
southeast late this afternoon and tonight from southeast Colorado
and northeast New Mexico. Will go ahead and increase the coverage of
expected activity in our area a little to the east and south. Would
not be surprised to see the showers and thunderstorms linger,
especially in the northeast after midnight in association with a
short wave trough passing near this area. Also, the low level jet
should also add to the shear.

Wednesday looks like a dry day for the panhandles as the low levels
dry some behind a surface trough.

On Thursday, a cold front will move into the Oklahoma Panhandle by
early evening and this combined with increasing shear aloft may help
to fire some showers and thunderstorms in the northeast CWA where
the better low level moisture will be located.

Better shower and thunderstorm activity should be found across the
eastern panhandles Friday and Friday night as this area will be
closer to the better low level moisture.

Shower and thunderstorm chances will return to much of the
panhandles this weekend into early next week as the flow aloft
becomes northwest again and mountain convection is allowed to drift
this way.
