.DISCUSSION...
WEAK COLD FRONT CURRENTLY PUSHING INTO SE KS WITH ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS HAVING RECENTLY DEVELOPED ON THE BOUNDARY. PRECEDING
AIRMASS IS MODERATELY UNSTABLE WITH A DEEPLY MIXED SUB CLOUD LAYER
AND 30-40KTS DEEP LAYER SHEAR. THIS WILL SUPPORT POTENTIAL
DOWNBURST WINDS FROM ANY STRONGER STORMS. OVERALL COVERAGE IS
EXPECTED TO BE LIMITED DUE TO ONLY A BRIEF PERIOD OF STRONGER
FORCING COUPLED WITH A RATHER QUICK STRENGTHENING OF INHIBITION
AROUND SUNSET.

THE BOUNDARY PUSHES TO NEAR THE INTERSTATE 40 CORRIDOR BY MONDAY
AFTERNOON AND FOCUSING AN AXIS OF MODERATE INSTABILITY. ISOLATED
TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL LIKELY AGAIN DEVELOP PRIMARILY FOR
SE OK THROUGH WESTERN AR. GIVEN THE DEGREE OF INSTABILITY A FEW
SEVERE STORMS ARE POSSIBLE. TEMPS WILL CONTINUE TO TREND UPWARD
DESPITE THE PRESENCE OF THE WEAK BOUNDARY.

UPPER RIDGING / WARMING PROFILES SPREAD EASTWARD TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY WITH TEMPS RESPONDING ACCORDINGLY. ANY CONVECTION WILL
BE PUSHED TO THE EASTERN PERIPHERY OF THE FORECAST AREA AROUND THE
PERIPHERY OF THE WARMEST MID LEVEL TEMPS. A STRONG WAVE LOOKS TO
SUPPRESS THE UPPER RIDGE THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY WITH THE ASSOCIATED
FRONTAL ZONE PUSHING INTO NE OK DURING THIS PERIOD. AHEAD OF THE
FRONT TEMPS WILL LIKELY REMAIN ABOVE NORMAL...HOWEVER CONVECTION
IS EXPECTED TO BECOME RATHER WIDESPREAD FRIDAY THROUGH NEXT
WEEKEND WHICH WILL REDUCE THE HEAT AND GIVE MOST PLACES A GOOD
SHOT AT PRECIP SOMETIME BETWEEN FRIDAY AND NEXT MONDAY.
