AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORMAN OK
356 AM CDT THU MAR 26 2015

.DISCUSSION...
WIND SPEEDS ARE STARTING TO DECREASE ACROSS THE AREA BEHIND THE
FRONT ALTHOUGH A FEW LOCATIONS ARE STILL GUSTING TO AROUND 35 TO
40 MPH. THE WIND ADVISORY WILL BE ALLOWED TO EXPIRE AT 4 AM. MUCH
COOLER TEMPS TODAY AS THE SFC HIGH MOVES OVER WEST TEXAS WITH
HIGHS IN THE 60S. TEMPS WILL WARM INTO THE 70S ACROSS THE WEST
TOMORROW...BUT A WEAK REINFORCING COLD FRONT MOVING THROUGH MID
DAY WILL KEEP THEM AROUND AVG FOR THE REST OF THE REGION.

BY EARLY SAT...A LEE TROUGH WILL DEEPEN AND LOW LEVEL MOISTURE
WILL BEGIN TO RETURN TO MOST OF THE FA THROUGH SUN AM. THERE IS
BETTER AGREEMENT BETWEEN MOST SOLUTIONS NOW THAT ANOTHER COLD
FRONT WILL ENTER THE FA SUN AND CONTINUE SOUTH INTO NORTH TEXAS.
THE GFS...HOWEVER...STALLS THIS FRONT NEAR THE RED RIVER. IT
APPEARS TO BE THE OUTLIER KEEPING THE ASSOCIATED NORTHERN STREAM
SHORTWAVE FURTHER NORTH AS IT MOVES INTO THE MIDWEST LATE SUN
NIGHT. FOR NOW...WILL GO WITH THE MORE AGGRESSIVE ECM/DGEX/GEM
SOLUTIONS. REGARDLESS...IT APPEARS THERE WILL BE AN OPPORTUNITY
FOR SOME SHOWERS AND STORMS SUN NIGHT MAINLY ACROSS THE SE.
CONFIDENCE IN IN THE FORECAST DROPS OFF A BIT EARLY NEXT WEEK AS
A PACIFIC TROUGH TRAVERSES THE GULF OF CALI AND MOVES INTO WEST
TEXAS SOMETIME TUE. THERE IS DECENT AGREEMENT THAT ANOTHER COLD
FRONT MAY IMPACT AT LEAST OK BY DAY 7 THOUGH...SO WILL CONTINUE
WITH LOW CHCS WED.
