.DISCUSSION...
LARGE AREA OF RAIN WITH EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TO
SPREAD NORTHEAST FROM WESTERN NORTH TEXAS INTO SOUTHERN AND PARTS
OF CENTRAL OKLAHOMA LATE THIS AFTERNOON. NO SEVERE WEATHER
EXPECTED WITH THIS BATCH OF ELEVATED STORMS. STORMS DEVELOPING
TX PANHANDLE WILL POSE A MARGINAL SEVERE HAIL RISK INTO THE EARLY
EVENING...AS WILL ANY STORMS THAT CAN FORM FARTHER SOUTH TOWARD
LUBBOCK/MIDLAND. PRIMARY AREAS THAT WILL WILL NEED TO MONITOR FOR
THIS POSSIBILITY ARE WESTERN NORTH TEXAS AND THE SOUTHWEST-QUARTER
OF OKLAHOMA.

IF WE CAN GET COMPLEX OF STORMS TO FORM LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND
EVENING JUST OFF TEXAS HIGH PLAINS SHOULD MAINTAIN ITSELF THROUGH
THE NIGHT AS TROUGH PROGRESSES SLOWLY OVER THE REGION. BETTERFLOW
AND MOISTURE WILL RESIDE ACROSS SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA WHICH WILL BE
AREA WITH HIGHEST CHANCES FOR APPRECIABLE RAINFALL...WITH CHANCES
DECREASING AS YOU GO NORTH INTO CENTRAL/NORTHERN OKLAHOMA.

NEXT MAIN CHANCE FOR STRONG AND SEVERE STORMS WILL BE WEDNESDAY.
MODELS AGREE ON DRYLINE EVENT LATE WEDNESDAY ACROSS WESTERN PARTS
OF OKLAHOMA INTO ADJACENT PARTS OF NORTH TEXAS...SPREADING EAST
WEDNESDAY NIGHT OVER MUCH OF REGION AS WEAK FRONT PUSHES THROUGH
OKLAHOMA AND NORTH TEXAS. THIS FRONT PROGD TO RETURN NORTHWARD
LATE THURSDAY AND LINGER OVER OR CLOSE TO THE BODY OF OKLAHOMA
INTO NEXT WEEKEND. ALTHOUGH WE WILL HAVE S/WV RIDGING OVER THE
REGION AHEAD OF NEXT MAIN TROUGH...DIURNALLY DRIVEN SHOWERS AND
STORMS MAY OCCUR. MORE SIGNIFICANT STORM DEVELOPMENT CURRENTLY
APPEARS TO BE NEXT WEEKEND AS HIGH AMPLITUDE TROUGH APPROACHES.
