DISCUSSION...
COOL AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL TODAY / TONIGHT AS SFC HIGH
PRESSURE SETTLES OVER THE REGION. THE WAVE CURRENTLY APPROACHING
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WILL CONTINUE ACROSS THE SOUTHWESTERN STATES
AND SPREAD LIGHT PRECIP INTO PORTIONS OF THE AREA WEDNESDAY
AFTERNOON. MORE WIDESPREAD PRECIP IS EXPECTED DURING THE WED NIGHT
TIME FRAME WITH LOCATIONS ACROSS SE OK INTO WESTERN AR STANDING THE
BETTER SHOT OF HEAVIER RAINFALL AMOUNTS. PRECIP CHANCES WILL
REMAIN RATHER HIGH FURTHER NORTH ACROSS NE OK / FAR NW AR HOWEVER
PRECIP AMOUNTS IN THIS REGION LOOK TO BE NOTICEABLY LESS.

THE NEXT WAVE ALOFT WILL QUICKLY FOLLOW AND BEGIN TO INFLUENCE THE
REGION FROM THURS NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT. THIS WAVE CONTINUES
TO BE FORECAST WITH A MORE SOUTHERN TRACK COMPARED TO THE MID WEEK
WAVE...WITH THE ASSOCIATED HEAVIER PRECIP ALSO FOCUSING ACROSS THE
SOUTHERN PORTION OF THE FORECAST AREA AND EVEN MORE SOUTH FOR
POINTS FURTHER SOUTH AND EAST. OVERALL TEMPS TODAY THROUGH NEXT
WEEKEND LOOK TO REMAIN NEAR TO SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL GIVEN THE
EXPECTED CLOUD COVER AND PERIODIC RAIN CHANCES...HOWEVER THE
POTENTIAL FOR ANY MEANINGFUL WINTRY PRECIP CONTINUES TO LOOK
MINIMAL.
