.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 330 AM CDT FRI APR 18 2014/

DISCUSSION...
SUNNY AND WARMER WEATHER RETURNS TODAY. AN UPPER TROUGH WILL
APPROACH LATE SATURDAY AND BRING CLOUDS AND A CHANCE FOR RAIN
SUNDAY. INSTABILITY AND WIND SHEAR WILL PROBABLY BE SUFFICIENT
FOR THE POTENTIAL FOR SOME SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS, BUT THE DRYLINE
WILL LIKELY REMAIN IN THE PANHANDLES. A FRONT MONDAY FOLLOWS THE
TROUGH AND BRINGS DRIER AIR. SOUTH WINDS AND TEMPERATURES INCREASE
MID-WEEK WHICH MAY LEAD TO HEIGHTENED WILDFIRE POTENTIAL WEDNESDAY
AND MORE LIKELY THURSDAY. ON THURSDAY AN UPPER TROUGH IS EXPECTED
TO APPROACH FROM THE SOUTHWEST AND PUSH THE DRYLINE INTO OKLAHOMA.
THURSDAY IS LIKELY TO BE THE DAY WITH THE HIGHEST WILDFIRE
POTENTIAL OF THE WEEK. THUNDERSTORMS ARE ALSO EXPECTED WITH THIS
SYSTEM ALONG THE DRYLINE AND THE FRONT THAT WILL PASS THROUGH
OKLAHOMA THURSDAY NIGHT.
