.DISCUSSION...
Morning satellite loops show a good deal of convective debris from
yesterday`s storms in the TX panhandle and western OK. The area of
storms weakened as it moved into NE OK Tuesday aftn and most
sites received 0.10" or less of rain. Today another shortwave will
move toward the area...but associated storms will remain north
and west of the CWA. Frontal zone over KS will remain a focus for
convection this afternoon but will make little southward progress.

Some drier air will work into the area by afternoon with
dewpoints dropping off into the upper 60s. However...it will still
feel hot with high temps in the low/mid 90s with less clouds than
yesterday. We will maintain low pops for areas in NE OK tonight
and Thursday just in case some storms form to the southwest and
make it into NE OK. Continued hot and humid for Thursday as
frontal zone moves into NW OK.

Friday would appear to have a higher chance of storms as
additional impulses move through the confluent SW flow aloft.
