.DISCUSSION...
With this forecast we say good-bye to the triple-digit temperatures
which have been observed over the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles (in
at least one or more observation sites) since July 9.  Relief can be
attributed to effects of outflow-enhanced cold front and expected
cloud cover.

The other good news is that good chances for rain remain in the
forecast for the next several days, owing to abundant low- and mid-
level moisture which has made its return.  Very weak flow aloft will
offer little in the way of dynamics, but nocturnal development of
low-level jet will provide support for thunderstorm development.
Presence of outflow boundaries will provide low-level focus for
development, with daily favored areas yet to be determined.  Forecast
soundings reveal tall skinny CAPEs which could support heavy rains.
Current forecast has pops in all sections all periods through
Saturday, with drying commencing Saturday night. 03

.FIRE WEATHER...
No elevated or critical fire weather conditions are expected for the
next seven days as relative humidity values remain well above 20
percent and wetting rains moisten fuels.  03
