.DISCUSSION...
Sfc high to pass across the region tonight through Wed w/ return
southerly flow developing Wed night and increasing Thursday.
Wind speeds may approach advisory criteria Thurs afternoon across
NE OK with seasonably warm temperatures expected. The axis of
deepest dry air will also extend into NE OK by Thur afternoon
ensuring afternoon dewpoints experience little to no recovery. The
combined effects will likely lead to heightened fire weather
potential for NE OK Thursday and later forecasts may require
associated headlines.

Weak wave currently over the southwest U.S. will pass late Thurs
but have minimal influence given the dry air in place. More
meaningful moisture return arrives Friday ahead of stronger wave
which will pass over the region Fri night through Saturday. Rain
chances will increase during this time frame before ending from
west to east on Saturday. Temps behind this wave are likely to
remain above seasonal normals through next weekend.
