AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORMAN OK
318 AM CDT SAT MAY 30 2015

.DISCUSSION...
STILL AN OPPORTUNITY FOR RAIN... MAINLY ACROSS SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA
INTO NORTH TEXAS THIS MORNING AS UPPER WAVE MOVES ACROSS AND
SURFACE COLD FRONT PUSHES SOUTH. IT DOES APPEAR THAT HEAVIEST
PRECIP WILL REMAIN SOUTH OF THE AREA. WILL CONT TO TREND BACK ON
THE FLASH FLOOD WATCH. WILL GO AHEAD AND CANCEL THE WATCH ACROSS
MUCH OF CENTRAL AND NORTHERN OKLAHOMA... BUT MAINTAIN IT THROUGH
MIDDAY TODAY ACROSS THE SOUTH. WHAT RAIN DOES OCCUR SHOULD EXIT
THE AREA THIS AFTERNOON WITH DRIER AIR OVERSPREADING THE AREA
BEHIND THE COLD FRONT.

THIS SHOULD MARK THE START OF A DRIER PERIOD FOR THE SOUTHERN
PLAINS AS MODELS DEPICT UPPER RIDGE BUILDING OUT OF THE ROCKIES
INTO THE CENTRAL U.S. THIS MAY LAST THROUGH THE UPCOMING WEEK AND
PERHAPS BEYOND. AS OF RIGHT NOW... NO ADDITIONAL RAIN CHANCES ARE
IN THE FORECAST BEYOND TODAY. TEMPS EXPECTED TO WARM INTO THE 80S
BY EARLY THIS WEEK AND CONT THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. THIS
ALONG WITH A BREEZY SOUTH WIND SHOULD ALLOW MANY AREAS TO BEGIN TO
DRY OUT.
