DISCUSSION...
NICE SPRING WEATHER THIS AFTERNOON WITH MILD CONDITIONS...LIGHT
WINDS AND MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES. WARMING TREND WILL CONTINUE INTO

FEW STORMS COULD BECOME SURFACE BASED SUNDAY AFTERNOON...HOWEVER
EXPECT MAIN THUNDERSTORM CHANCES TO HOLD OFF UNTIL MONDAY AS UPPER

STRONG THUNDERSTORMS...BUT DEEP LAYER SHEAR WILL NOT BE OVERLY
IMPRESSIVE AND MAINLY CONFINED TO FAR SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA INTO
NORTH TEXAS.

WEAK HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE AREA ON TUESDAY BEHIND
DEPARTING SYSTEM. SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL QUICKLY RETURN BY MID WEEK
WITH WARM/BREEZY CONDITIONS WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY. A STRONG
UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL SHIFT INTO THE NORTHERN/CENTRAL
PLAINS THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY AND PROVIDE AT LEAST A LIMITED
CHANCE FOR SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS. CURRENTLY...STRONGER UPPER LEVEL
DYNAMICS ARE FORECAST TO LIFT NORTH OF THE AREA...BUT OVERALL
PROGRESSION OF SYSTEM WILL NEED TO BE MONITORED INTO NEXT WEEK.
