.DISCUSSION...
Strong to severe thunderstorms continue to develop across mainly
western north Texas this afternoon. Other widely scattered
showers and a few storms are developing mainly north of a cold
front in northwest Oklahoma. Anvil debris and other light
showers are keeping parts of central and southern Oklahoma
relatively cool this afternoon.

Part of an outflow boundary that pushed well into north Texas has
been lifting slowly northward this afternoon. This boundary may
lift slowly into far southern Oklahoma later this afternoon,
however, western north Texas convection may keep this boundary
just south of the Red River.

Overall the risk of strong to severe storms will continue into
the evening, perhaps overnight, before a cold front sweeps across
southern Oklahoma by early Saturday morning.

Will continue the current Flood Watch through early Saturday
morning. It does appear that western north Texas and southern
Oklahoma will have the best opportunity for widespread showers
and thunderstorms through late this evening/early Saturday
morning.

Overall most of the weekend will be dry with below average
temperatures.

Another trough will approach the southern Plains around Monday of
next week. This will bring another opportunity for showers and
thunderstorms, especially across southern Oklahoma and western
north Texas.
