.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 259 AM CDT FRI APR 18 2014/

DISCUSSION...

THIS MORNING IS STARTING OFF ON A CHILLY NOTE...BUT A LATE RETURN
TO SOUTHERLY WINDS AND UPPER LEVEL RIDGING BUILDING INTO THE
SOUTHERN PLAINS WILL LEAD TO NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES THIS
AFTERNOON FOR MUCH OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN ARKANSAS. EVEN
WARMER TEMPERATURES WILL ARRIVE TOMORROW...SIGNALLING THE
BEGINNING OF AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR
THE REGION THAT WILL PERSIST WELL INTO NEXT WEEK. ALTHOUGH THE
SPRING GREENUP IS BEGINNING TO OCCUR...GUSTY SOUTH WINDS WILL
INCREASE THE FIRE DANGER TOMORROW IN ANY AREAS WITH STILL CURED
FUELS...PRIMARILY ACROSS NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA.

THE WEATHER PATTERN WILL REMAIN FAIRLY ACTIVE...WITH STORM SYSTEMS
MOVING THROUGH THE AREA EVERY COUPLE OF DAYS. DESPITE THIS...THERE
REALLY ARE NOT ANY SLAM DUNK DAYS FOR ANY ONE LOCATION TO RECEIVE
ANY MUCH NEEDED RAINFALL...BUT OVERALL...IT APPEARS THAT SUNDAY
NIGHT AND INTO MONDAY WILL BRING THE BEST CHANCE FOR THE NEXT WEEK
OR SO. THURSDAY AND THURSDAY NIGHT WOULD BE THE NEXT CHANCE FOR
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS AFTER THIS WEEKEND. INSTABILITY IS
DEFINITELY SUFFICIENT FOR THUNDERSTORMS SUNDAY AND INTO
MONDAY...BUT DEEP LAYER SHEAR IS SOMEWHAT LACKING...LIMITING ANY
WIDESPREAD OR SIGNIFICANT SEVERE WEATHER POTENTIAL. THE SEVERE
WEATHER POTENTIAL CURRENTLY LOOKS TO BE HIGHER TOWARD THE END OF
NEXT WEEK...ALTHOUGH SOME DIFFERENCES IN THE MEDIUM RANGE MODEL
SUITE LEAVE DETAILS ON THE POTENTIAL UNCERTAIN AT THIS POINT.
