AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE Tulsa OK

.DISCUSSION...
Dry and mild conditions today ahead of the fast moving wave
currently moving into the Texas Panhandle. This feature will
spread light precipitation into eastern Oklahoma tonight. Limited
low level moisture will hamper measurable precip chances. Low
level temps also look to remain generally too warm for any snow
however a few flakes may be realized given the cold temps aloft.

Saturday will remain dry and mild as the pattern across the CONUS
amplifies with ridging west / troughing east. The upper low
developing into the eastern trough will push a cold front through
the area on Sunday with gusty north winds following. The coldest
air looks to remain well north and east of the forecast
area...while above normal temps remain to our west. The result is
temperatures near to slightly above normal temps through late next
week. Several frontal passages are likely within the prevailing
northwesterly flow aloft...however limited moisture will keep any
frontal passage dry.
