.DISCUSSION...
Skies are expected to cont to gradually clear across much of
the area late today into this evening. This trend may turn the
other way late tonight into Monday as closed upper low begins to
lift northeast toward central Texas. In addition to the increase
in cloudcover overnight, patchy fog may also develop in areas
where skies clear to go along with light winds and wet ground
from recent rains. Have added some fog wording and may have to
watch for some isolated dense fog as well.

As we get into Monday, expect rain to increase across the south
and southeast as the upper low cont to track northeast toward
the Arklatex region. Rain should end by late in the day tomorrow
as upper low shifts east of the area.

Attention then turns to the colder air to the north and its
arrival. Initial surge will drop south on the backside of the
upper low on Tuesday. However, much colder airmass will slide
south as an upper trough swings out of the central Rockies and
into the plains on Wednesday. Some light snow still expected
across the northern half of Oklahoma, with perhaps some light
accumulations across northern Oklahoma near the Kansas border.
Other component will be the very cold wind chills by Wednesday
afternoon and night. Wind chills will be in the single digits and
teens most locations by late Wednesday and especially Wed night.

Temperatures will not get out of the 30s across the area
on Thursday even with mostly sunny skies. A modest warm up is
then anticipated as we go into next weekend.
