.DISCUSSION...
Diurnal moist convection continues to develop across portions of
central OK and western north TX this afternoon. Other storms where
located across the northern TX panhandle. Most of the activity
over central OK and W N TX will come to an end after sunset.
However, a subtle mid level shortwave trough, currently supporting
the activity across the panhandles, will move near NW OK so expect
low chance PoPs to continue there late tonight. A few showers and
storms may also continue across SE OK near a mid to upper shear
axis associated with the mid to upper low near east TX.

Over the next several days, at least some diurnal convection is
expected as we remain on the fringe of the upper ridge and a mid
to upper trough to our west only slowly progresses east out of
the southern Rockies. The highest PoPs will remain west of I35 and
mainly across NW OK in association with this feature. By late in
the week, chances will decrease as the ridge tries to move over
the Southern Plains but with abundant moisture remaining in place
and our region remaining near the northern fringe of the ridge,
suspect at least SCHC PoPs each afternoon for a portion of our
CWA. Overall, it appears temperatures will remain near or below
average through the forecast period.
