UPDATE...
QUICK UPDATE TO PRECIP/WX OVERNIGHT...

DISCUSSION...
SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUE TO DEVELOP ACROSS WRN OK AND WRN
N TX THIS EVENING. THIS ACTIVITY WILL CONTINUE TO EVOLVE THROUGH
THE EVENING... WITH MOST STORMS DEVELOPING AHEAD OF THE DRYLINE
WITHIN THE WARM SECTOR. THROUGH 23Z... THE DRYLINE WAS VISIBLE ON
KFDR REACHING AS FAR AS WRN WILBARGER AND BAYLOR COUNTIES... AND
HAS STARTED TO SHOW SIGNS OF SLOWLY RETREATING WESTWARD. VIS SAT
SHOWS SOME CONTINUAL CU DEVELOPMENT ALONG THIS BOUNDARY AS IT
RETREATS. GIVEN SUPPORT ALOFT FROM THE STOUT UPPER LOW... EXPECT
STORMS TO CONTINUE TO DEVELOP ACROSS TEXOMA. EXPECT INSTABILITY TO
SLOWLY START A DOWNWARD TREND ACROSS THE REGION... WITH CURRENT
CONVECTION SLOWLY FILLING IN ACROSS CENTRAL OK THROUGH 7 TO 8 PM
CDT. MESOSCALE GUIDANCE IS IN DECENT AGREEMENT OF A FAIRLY LONG
LINE FROM THE RED RIVER TO THE OK/KS BORDER DEVELOPING THROUGH 8PM
AND MOVING EASTWARD AS A COMPLEX ACROSS CENTRAL OK OVERNIGHT. THE
TORNADO THREAT WILL CONTINUE TO TREND DOWN THROUGH SUNSET... WITH
THE BEST CHANCE REMAINING IN NW OK... WHERE A WEAK SFC BOUNDARY
CONTINUES TO LINGER RESULTING IN INCREASED LL SHEAR. WITH THAT
SAID... STORMS IN THE NORTH HAVE TRIED THEIR BEST... WITH REPORTS
OF FUNNELS BUT NO TORNADOES. THROUGH SUNSET... HAIL AND WIND WILL
BE THE PRIMARY THREATS AS STORMS DEVELOP INTO A LINE AND GET SOME
SUPPORT FROM A SLIGHT UPTICK IN THE LLJ.

DISCUSSION...
GETTING BUSY... SO THIS WILL BE SHORT.

ANOTHER ROUND OF SEVERE STORMS EXPECTED LATER THIS AFTERNOON
THROUGH THIS EVENING AS UPPER LOW CONT TO SLOWLY MOVE EAST AND
NORTHEAST. THE LOW IS EXPECTED TO OPEN UP AND SHIFT EAST TOMORROW.
AS THIS OCCURS A COLD FRONT WITH GUSTY NORTH WINDS WILL SWEEP
SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE AREA. COULD SEE A FEW SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS
UNDER THE UPPER LOW ACROSS NORTHERN OKLAHOMA ON SUNDAY. WITH COLD
TEMPS ALOFT ASSOCIATED WITH THIS LOW... COULD SEE SOME SMALL HAIL
ASSOCIATED WITH THE STORMS.

WILL THEN SEE A COUPLE OF DRY DAYS BEFORE ANOTHER ACTIVE PERIOD
BEGINNING TUESDAY AND LINGERING REALLY THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF
THE UPCOMING WEEK. NO REAL STRONG SIGNAL FOR SEVERE... BUT IT IS
GETTING TO BE LATE APRIL... SO CAN NOT COMPLETELY RULE IT OUT.
