most likely to affect the northeast Oklahoma sites from mid
afternoon through early evening. MVFR ceilings will likely develop
late tonight and linger through most of Saturday morning.
.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 1107 AM CDT FRI MAY 27 2016/
Showers and thunderstorms have mostly dissipated as they have
moved north into our area this morning. The exception has been
across far southeast Oklahoma, but even there, rainfall amounts
have been on the light side.
Scattered convection is likely to develop this afternoon along
residual outflow boundaries and also on differential heating
boundaries. In addition, at least scattered storms will fire along
the dryline to our west and may move east into our area late this
afternoon and evening. Have adjusted pops down a bit in most
places this afternoon and also adjusted temperatures up slightly.
Also lowered sky cover a bit in most places with clearing
approaching the far western part of our forecast area. Will need
to monitor this clearing trend over the next few hours for
possible further adjustments to sky and temperatures if it
progresses too far to the east.
Update on the way.
