.DISCUSSION...
A COLD FRONT CURRENTLY EXTENDS FROM NEAR HOBART TO EL RENO AND
RED ROCK...AND IS MOVING AROUND 15-20 MPH. THIS SHOULD BRING THE
FRONT THROUGH DOWNTOWN OKC AROUND 5 PM. MOST MODELS INDICATE SOME
POTENTIAL FOR MAINLY ELEVATED SHOWERS/STORMS LATER THIS EVENING. NORTH
CENTRAL/CENTRAL OKLAHOMA WILL HAVE THE BEST CHANCE FROM MID TO
LATE EVENING WITH BETTER CHANCES IN SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA DURING THE
OVERNIGHT HOURS.

THE MAIN RESULT OF THE FRONT WILL BE A RETURN TO NEAR AVERAGE
TEMPERATURES FOR LATE OCTOBER.  CLEAR SKIES AND LIGHT WINDS MAY
ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO COOL TO NEAR FREEZING BY WEDNESDAY MORNING
IN NORTHWEST/WEST CENTRAL OKLAHOMA.

A SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL MOVE FROM THE NORTHERN ROCKIES INTO THE
MID AND SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI VALLEY WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO THURSDAY.
AN ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT WILL PUSH INTO NORTHERN OKLAHOMA EARLY
THURSDAY.

ON SATURDAY...SURFACE WINDS WILL SHIFT BACK TO A SOUTHERLY
DIRECTION...AS A RATHER STRONG SYSTEM MOVES ACROSS THE PACIFIC
NORTHWEST. AROUND MONDAY OF NEXT WEEK...RAIN AND STORM CHANCES
WILL INCREASE...AS ANOTHER FRONT MOVES ACROSS THE SOUTHERN
PLAINS.
