AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORMAN OK
350 PM CDT THU SEP 18 2014

.DISCUSSION...
MOST OF THE SHOWERS AND STORMS HAVE ENDED ACROSS OUR REGION THIS
AFTERNOON. A FEW ARE LINGERING NEAR THE OUTFLOW BOUNDARY ACROSS
WESTERN N TX...BUT EXPECT THESE WILL LIKELY DIMINISH OVER THE NEXT
COUPLE OF HOURS. EXPECT LOW CHANCES TO LINGER ACROSS THE EXTREME
SW THROUGH EARLY TOMORROW AM.

RAIN CHANCES WILL THEN START TO INCREASE ACROSS THE WEST THROUGH
FRIDAY AS THE REMNANTS OF ODILE TRAVERSE THE PANHANDLE OF TX.
THERE ARE STILL SOME UNCERTAINTIES REGARDING THE EASTWARD
PROGRESSION OF THE RAIN THROUGH THIS WEEKEND...BUT CONSENSUS
MOISTURE AND OMEGA FIELDS SUGGEST THE HIGHER QPF AMOUNTS WILL
IMPACT THE SW THROUGH EARLY SAT AM...AND THEN SHIFT ESE DURING THE
DAY SATURDAY. CONSIDERED A FLASH FLOOD WATCH FOR OUR WESTERN TX
ZONES AND SW OK ZONES...BUT CONFIDENCE NOT HIGH ENOUGH AT THE
MOMENT. WILL PASS THIS ON TO THE NEXT SHIFT.

A COLD FRONT WILL THEN SLIDE SOUTH DURING THE DAY SUNDAY AND AT
LEAST LOW CHC POPS WILL ACCOMPANY IT. MUCH COOLER AFTERNOON HIGHS
ARE EXPECTED BOTH SAT AND SUN WITH PERSISTENT CLOUD COVER AND RAIN
CHCS PRESENT...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE WEST SAT. THE COOL TREND WILL
CONTINUE THROUGH AT LEAST EARLY NEXT WEEK AS A SFC HIGH SETTLES IN
OVER THE MIDWEST AND EXTENDS THROUGH OUR ENE ZONES. AT LEAST SCHC
POPS WILL RETURN BY TUES AS A SHORTWAVE TROUGH ENTERS KS AND WAA
RETURNS ACROSS THE WNW.
