.DISCUSSION...
Little change to going forecast - high pressure ridge to continue
across the region into the weekend. Some hope for convection this
evening across the western Oklahoma Panhandle and extreme northwest
Texas Panhandle with a weak trough as triggering mechanism. Main
threat from activity will be strong gusty winds.

Otherwise, repeat forecast of hot and dry for much of the week.
Models are in agreement with shortwaves riding across the northern
edge of the ridge and that next best chance for precipitation will
again be across the northwest sections of the forecast area on Friday
evening. Chances may be a little more widespread across the Oklahoma
Panhandle and northern sections of the Texas Panhandle Saturday night.
