.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 321 PM CDT TUE AUG 26 2014/

DISCUSSION...
CURRENTLY...A FEW SHOWERS AND STORMS ARE SHOWING UP ON RADAR IN
NORTHWEST OKLAHOMA THIS AFTERNOON DUE TO DAYTIME HEATING. THIS
ISOLATED CONVECTION CAN BE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE UNTIL ABOUT SUNSET.

TOMORROW IS OUR LAST HOT AND DRY DAY BEFORE A TROUGH AND ITS
ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT MOVE IN. THIS SLOW MOVING FRONT WILL BRING A
GRADUAL COOL OFF AND SOME MUCH NEEDED RAIN. MODELS HAVE COME INTO
MUCH BETTER AGREEMENT AS FAR AS TIMING OF THIS SYSTEM. NUMEROUS
SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE WEEKEND WITH FRIDAY
BEING THE BEST CHANCE FOR WIDESPREAD RAINFALL. RIGHT NOW IT LOOKS
LIKE NORTHWEST OKLAHOMA WILL SEE THE HIGHER AMOUNTS...ALONG A MID
LEVEL MOISTURE AXIS.

THE FORECAST DRIES BACK OUT ON SUNDAY AS OUR TROUGH MOVES OUT.
TEMPERATURES WILL CLIMB BACK UP INTO THE 90S.
