DISCUSSION...
Deformation zone on the back side of departing upper level storm
system may continue to help touch off some snow showers over the
western Oklahoma Panhandle and the northwest Texas Panhandle
overnight. So have added some low end chance pops for this area. Very
little if any accumulations are expected.

Upper level storm moves away from the panhandles by Tuesday, but
another storm system approaches us from the southwest. This system
may bring some rain showers to the southeast Texas Panhandle by
Tuesday night, so have inserted some slight chance pops there. Upper
level heights will rise behind this departing system and high
temperatures will be back above normal for Wednesday through Friday.

Another upper level low moves east across the southern Rockies and
into the southern high plains Saturday. This system may bring some
rain showers to the area on Saturday. Then we may see some snow
showers on the back side of this system on Saturday night.
Surprisingly the GFS and ECMWF models are in fairly good agreement
with the track of this system. Sunday should be dry again as this
system moves off the the east.
