.DISCUSSION...
Storm system that has brought ice, rain and storms to Oklahoma
and north Texas will finally lift northeast of the area today.
Could still see some light rain across northern Oklahoma,
possibly mixed with snow in the northwest, this morning. Maybe a
lingering shower in the far southeast early today as well,
otherwise mainly dry with some morning fog before gradually
clearing skies. Parts of northern Oklahoma may continue to see
cloudy skies through the day as wrap-around moisture lingers. Even
with the possibility of some light snow in the northwest, will
allow winter weather headlines to expire this morning. Temps
should rebound across most of the area into the 40s and 50s,
perhaps approaching 60 degrees near the Red River.

Will see a very weak surface front move through tonight, which
will take a few degrees off of highs for Tuesday outside of
northern Oklahoma where they will be a few degrees warmer, aiding
in melting the ice.

Another closed low currently taking shape over northern Mexico
will eject a piece of energy northeast toward the Southern Plains
by late Tuesday. May be sufficient moisture make it far enough
north to allow for a few showers across southern Oklahoma and
north Texas Tuesday night.

Otherwise, should see much warmer temperatures across the area
by the middle and continuing into the latter part of the week.
Another storm system may bring a chance of rain to the area next
weekend.
