AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORMAN OK
416 AM CDT TUE SEP 23 2014

.DISCUSSION...
RADAR SHOWS SOME VIRGA AND PERHAPS A FEW LIGHT SHOWERS EARLY THIS
MORNING OVER SOUTH-CENTRAL KANSAS...AND INTO NORTHERN OKLAHOMA. IT
APPEARS TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH AN UPPER-LEVEL WAVE OVER SOUTH
DAKOTA...AND A MOISTURE PLUME THAT EXTENDS SOUTH FROM THERE.

THE WAVE OVER SOUTH DAKOTA IS FORECAST TO MEANDER OVER THE CENTRAL
PLAINS OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS...THEN JOIN FORCES WITH ANOTHER
WAVE THAT IS FORECAST TO MOVE NORTH FROM COAHUILA AND TEXAS. WITH
DRY AIR AT LOW LEVELS...AND ONLY MODEST AMOUNTS OF MOISTURE AT
HIGHER LEVELS...RAINFALL AMOUNTS SHOULD BE GENERALLY LIGHT.
TONIGHT MAY BE AN EXCEPTION...AS MORE ROBUST CONVECTION IS
POSSIBLE OVER KANSAS...AND HAS A GOOD CHANCE OF EXPANDING SOUTH
INTO THE NORTHERN PARTS OF OKLAHOMA.

CONFIDENCE IN THE FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY PART OF THE FORECAST IS
RELATIVELY LOW...AS THE MODEL SOLUTIONS BECOME INCREASINGLY
DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER...AND TEMPORAL STABILITY DECREASES.

ONLY A FEW MINOR MODIFICATIONS WERE MADE TO THE PREVIOUS
FORECAST.
