.DISCUSSION...
Mid-level wave has resulted in a rather large area of
precipitation across OK this afternoon...with some embedded
thunder along the southern periphery. This activity was remained
well below severe limits...and has also held temps well down in
the 70s.

Stronger convection has developed over the past 1-2 hours near and
just north of the synoptic front across northern TX. Latest NAM
along with various hi-res models suggests this activity will
organize into one or more complexes...with storms tracking
generally east along the Red River this evening and overnight.
Some severe weather will be possible...although locally heavy
rainfall may be the bigger concern given PWs running around 2
inches. Hopefully this activity will remain rather
progressive...but have gone ahead with a flash flood watch tonight
for far southeast OK. Showers/storms should be exiting southeast
OK/western AR tomorrow morning...with some linger low PoPs
expected into the afternoon.

Upper pattern remains quite active into early next week...with the
frontal boundary eventually lifting north through the area Monday
into Tuesday. Focus for additional rainfall should shift mostly
north of the area later in the week...with more seasonal
temperatures returning.
