ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
An area of patchy light fog has developed overnight across
portions of northeast Oklahoma. Fog should linger into the morning
hours before burning off by late morning.

Attention then turns towards the potential for severe storms
to fire along a dryline that will advance east across central
Oklahoma this afternoon. The associated upper level low will move
out onto the High Plains today with surface deepening across
western Oklahoma. As surface low and dryline move east, storms
will quickly become severe with large hail and damaging winds the
primary concern; however, several isolated tornadoes cannot be
ruled out, especially across the southeast quadrant of the state.

By evening, the storms are expected to merge into a line with
large hail and damaging winds still a concern. Tornado threat will
decrease as the line moves into far east Oklahoma and western
Arkansas. A few severe storms will also be possible as the surface
low moves across northern Oklahoma and southern Kansas.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Activation of the Regional Spotter Network Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
MONDAY and TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
WEDNESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
THURSDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
FRIDAY and SATURDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
A series of systems will work their way across the country over
the next week as the weather pattern remains quite active. After
a brief respite Monday, the next system will impact the Plains
Tuesday and Wednesday with the possibility of heavy rain and
severe thunderstorms. Another trough will eject out onto the
Southern Plains for the weekend.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PLANNING STATEMENT...
Emergency management and first responders should follow forecast
updates closely today.
