Area Forecast Discussion

.DISCUSSION...
Current forecast looks good going into the overnight period.
Surface boundary to drift into northeast Oklahoma tomorrow
morning...with heat and humidity to increase across the entire
area on Friday. Despite the approaching boundary...storm chances
tomorrow look slim as the area will be capped.

Better chances will come Saturday...with initiation expected in
the mid to late afternoon hours across central and/or eastern
Oklahoma. A strong cap will be in place again for much of the day
as the environment becomes extremely unstable. Areal coverage of
storms remains a bit uncertain at this time, however conditional
severe chances are expected to be quite high. The timing,
instability, wind shear, and upper support that will be in place
by late in the day Saturday will set the stage for all modes of
severe weather, including the potential for significant severe.
Please continue to monitor the latest updates and forecasts.


No first period update planned at this time.
