.DISCUSSION...
A large storm system over the western United States will move
slowly east over the next several days. The southern part of the
large mid/upper-level trough will break off during the weekend,
and become a cutoff low over Arizona for several days.

At the surface, a strong cold front will arrive in the southern
Plains this weekend, bringing much cooler weather after its
passage. It is not entirely clear exactly how far south this front
will reach before stalling, and slowly returning back north next
week.

There will be plenty of moisture around to make it a very soggyweekend.
We have elected not to issue any flood watches at this time, but
the expected conditions are close enough that we did consider the
possibility. Most of our forecast area should see quite a bit of
rain from Saturday into early next week, with the highest rainfall
amounts mainly aligned with I-44. While large- scale or major
flooding appears to be unlikely, minor/localized flooding is
quite likely.
