DISCUSSION...
LOW-MID 50S DEWPOINTS HAVE FILTERED INTO NE OK AND NW AR THIS
MORNING...AND THIS DRIER AIR WILL WORK S TODAY UNDER SURFACE
RIDGING CONDITIONS. COULD SEE A FEW SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS NEAR
THE RED RIVER WHERE BETTER LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE LINGERS...BUT
OVERALL CHANCES ARE QUITE SLIM. OTHERWISE...EXPECT A VERY PLEASANT
AFTERNOON WITH HIGHS MAINLY IN THE 80S.

MOSTLY DRY NWLY FLOW ALOFT WILL PERSIST FOR THE NEXT FEW
DAYS...WITH TEMPERATURES GRADUALLY MODERATING AS THE UPPER
RIDGE/HIGHER MID-LEVEL HEIGHTS EDGES E.

AN UPPER WAVE IS FORECAST TO MOVE THROUGH THE CENTRAL PLAINS
TOWARD THE END OF THE WEEK...DRIVING A FRONTAL BOUNDARY TOWARD
THE AREA. MOISTURE RETURN LOOKS RATHER MEAGER AHEAD OF THIS
SYSTEM...SO HAVE KEPT PRECIPITATION CHANCES ON THE LOW-END FOR
THURSDAY NIGHT INTO FRIDAY NIGHT.

SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPS EXPECTED FOR THE COMING WEEKEND AS THE FRONT
CLEARS THE AREA. TEMPS WILL LIKELY MODERATE AGAIN EARLY NEXT WEEK
AS THE UPPER RIDGE BUILDS ONCE AGAIN.
