.DISCUSSION...
FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL REMAIN NEAR THE RED RIVER VALLEY TODAY
ALLOWING PLEASANT EARLY SPRING CONDITIONS...WITH THIS BOUNDARY
WORKING NORTHWARD TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY WITH A NOTICEABLE
INCREASE IN LOW LEVEL MOISTURE. PRECIP CHANCES WILL INCREASE
TUESDAY AS THE AREA IS GLANCED BY A WAVE PASSING ACROSS THE UPPER
MID WEST...HOWEVER MORE WIDESPREAD STORMS WILL LIKELY FOCUS WEST
OF THE AREA NEARER THE DRYLINE. PRECIP CHANCES CONTINUE INTO
WEDNESDAY AS THE UPPER LOW CURRENTLY OFF THE BAJA COAST TRANSLATES
ACROSS THE SOUTHERN PLAINS. CONDITIONS BOTH TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY WILL
OFFER A LIMITED RISK OF SEVERE WEATHER HOWEVER NO PROLONGED PERIOD
OF ORGANIZED SEVERE WEATHER IS EXPECTED.

ONCE THE WEAK UPPER LOW PASSES ON WEDNESDAY THE PATTERN ALOFT BECOMES A
FAST NEAR ZONAL FLOW ACROSS THE PLAINS. AN INITIAL WAVE WILL
BRING A COLD FRONT THROUGH THE CENTRAL PLAINS WEDNESDAY NIGHT WITH
SEVERE WEATHER FOCUSED NORTH OF THE LOCAL AREA. THIS BOUNDARY THEN
LOOKS TO TEMPORARILY STALL AHEAD OF THE NEXT WAVE WHICH WILL
TRANSLATE INTO THE PLAINS LATE THURSDAY / THURSDAY NIGHT. AN
ESTABLISHED WARM SECTOR WILL BE IN PLACE BY THIS POINT WITH A
ROUND OF SEVERE WEATHER LIKELY LATE THURSDAY THROUGH EARLY FRIDAY
MORNING AS THE WAVE PASSES AND THE AFOREMENTIONED FRONTAL BOUNDARY
PUSHES THROUGH THE AREA.

POST FRONTAL CONDITIONS WILL FEATURE COOLER TEMPS AND DRY WEATHER
FOR THE EARLY PART OF THE WEEKEND...WITH PRECIP CHANCES RETURNING
BY EARLY NEXT WEEK.
