.DISCUSSION...
Widely scattered showers and a few thunderstorms formed late this
morning and early afternoon, with better coverage across western
Oklahoma. Most of the convection will dissipate by mid evening,
but may continue overnight in west central and northwest Oklahoma
as a weak mid-level trough moves across eastern Colorado and
western Kansas. Showers and thunderstorms this afternoon will be
capable of producing torrential downpours and gusty winds.

A weak cold front will move into northern Oklahoma Wednesday into
Thursday, as a trough moves across the Great Lakes and
northeastern United States. The main result will be an increase in
showers and thunderstorms, especially across northern and perhaps
central Oklahoma. Drier air will also filter into most of
Oklahoma by late Thursday into Friday.

Southerly winds will return and increase late Friday into Saturday
as a lee trough develops. This will also coincide with a gradual
increase in near surface moisture. Mainly dry conditions are
expected over the weekend as a mid and upper level ridge will
remain over the southern Plains.

Storm chances will begin to increase around Tuesday of next week
as a strong trough over the Pacific Northwest begins to shift
eastward.
