.DISCUSSION...
A thunderstorm complex across southern Oklahoma contributing to
high clouds across the region this morning. High clouds should
dissipate later this morning with temperatures forecast to climb
into the mid 80s areawide.

Southwest flow aloft will provide for increased moisture across
the region through the work week. Partly to mostly cloudy skies to
prevail with a chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms each day.
There is a marginal risk of strong to severe thunderstorms today
mainly across East Texas, Southeast Oklahoma, portions of
Southwest Arkansas and portions of Northwest Louisiana as weak
impulses translate northeast along mean flow.

An upper-trough across the west coast will swing east and deepen
into a closed low across the desert southwest by midweek. The low
will shift east across the Texas Panhandle on Thursday night
allowing for increased instability across the Arklatex on Friday.
With sufficient moisture in place, some storms could become severe
on Friday.

Afternoon showers and thunderstorms to continue on Saturday and
Sunday.

Otherwise...light south to southeast winds to prevail through the
forecast period with high temperatures ranging from highs in the
80s to lows around 70 each day.
