.DISCUSSION...
Convection continues this afternoon with one shortwave moving east
through the area. Some additional development has been occurring
south with residual weak convective boundaries. The southern
convection will likely diminish with loss of diurnal heating while
the northern showers/storms will continue to move east. Attention
then turns back to the high plains with expected convective
development that will likely evolve into a storm cluster or
complex. The strongest signal is that most of these storms will
remain to the north in Kansas, but it is still worth having at
least some low pops in northern Oklahoma.

Another wave moves toward the area Saturday night and Sunday with
a frontal boundary moving into at least northwestern Oklahoma.
This will give us the best chance of storms across the area over
the next week, with the highest chances across the north.

Upper ridge builds more into the area next week, so it looks like
we will be warming up again. Triple digit temperatures will return
to the typical climatologically warm areas.
