No big changes to the previous grids and forecast this forecast
package. An upper ridge will continue to build east in over the
Panhandles by Thursday and Friday. Isolated convection this afternoon
mainly across the northern and eastern Panhandles should dissipate by
late this evening with additional convection tracking southeast
across the northern and eastern Panhandles again by Wednesday
afternoon and evening. A frontal boundary stretching across southwest
Kansas will remain quasi-stationary through Wednesday will push
south into the forecast area during the latter half of the week and
into the weekend. Chances for convection will increase by late this
week and this weekend as the front pushes into the Panhandles. A few
storms could become strong to marginally severe with strong and gusty
winds along with locally heavy rainfall being the primary threats.
