.DISCUSSION...
A weak front will drift slowly south tonight across parts of
northern and central Oklahoma. It will do little more than cause
erratic winds. A reinforcing front will sweep south tomorrow, and
will catch up with the weaker front over southern/central Oklahoma
in the morning, then continue south into Texas. This will bring
cooler (though still far warmer than the seasonal average)
weather to all but southeastern Oklahoma tomorrow.

Meager moisture/lift will result in low rain chances beginning
Tuesday night, as low-level winds begin to turn back to southerly.
A much stronger system will arrive late Thursday, bringing some
chance for storms to western Oklahoma/western north Texas in the
evening/overnight. It appears that this storm system will be
centered over Oklahoma during the day on Friday, which should
limit the chance of severe storms to eastern Oklahoma, mainly east
of our forecast area.

After a day of somewhat cooler/drier weather on Saturday, the
ECMWF (and now the GFS is working in that direction) shows a stout
little storm moving northeast across the region on Sunday.
Depending on how much moisture returns by the time that system
arrives, Sunday could be a severe-weather day.
