.DISCUSSION...
TODAY WILL BE ANOTHER VERY WARM DAY WHEN MOISTURE CONTINUES TO
INCREASE THROUGH MOST LEVELS. AN UPPER TROUGH APPROACHES TONIGHT
FROM THE WEST AND WILL BRING SUFFICIENT LIFT FOR SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS SUNDAY. BEST CHANCES FOR RAIN AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL
BE IN NORTHERN OKLAHOMA, BUT CHANCES FOR FEWER BUT STRONGER
THUNDERSTORMS WILL LIKELY BE ACROSS SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA AND ADJACENT
PARTS OF TEXAS. THIS TROUGH, BEING SOMEWHAT DISCONNECTED FROM THE
MAIN BELT OF WESTERLIES TO THE NORTH, WILL MOVE SLOWLY EAST AND
KEEP RAIN CHANCES AROUND FOR MONDAY ALSO. A WEAK FRONT WITH ONLY
SLIGHTLY COOLER AIR WILL FOLLOW LATER MONDAY. BY WEDNESDAY, A
DRYLINE WILL EXIST OVER THE TX/OK PANHANDLES AND MAY ENTER WESTERN
OKLAHOMA. ON THURSDAY THERE IS A MUCH BETTER CHANCE THAT THE
DRYLINE WILL MOVE INTO WESTERN OKLAHOMA. VERY HOT AND DRY
CONDITIONS WILL CAUSE THURSDAY TO BE THE DAY TO WATCH FOR THE
SPREAD OF WILDFIRES. AN UPPER LOW MOVING THROUGH THE NORTHERN
PLAINS AT THE TIME WILL BRING A TROUGH THROUGH OKLAHOMA AND GIVE A
CHANCE FOR RAIN THUNDERSTORMS. THIS WILL BE FOLLOWED BY A FRONT ON
FRIDAY THAT WILL TAKE THE HEAT OF MID-WEEK BACK TO MORE NORMAL
TEMPERATURES INTO THE WEEKEND.
