EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
AN UNSETTLED WEATHER PATTERN WILL REMAIN ACROSS THE PLAINS
THROUGH THE UPCOMING WEEK WITH DAILY THUNDERSTORM CHANCES.
INSTABILITY WILL ALSO INCREASE AS WARMER TEMPERATURES AND
INCREASING MOISTURE OVERSPREAD THE REGION.  THIS WILL
SUPPORT SOME POTENTIAL FOR SEVERE WEATHER...HOWEVER THE MORE
WIDESPREAD SEVERE WEATHER IS LIKELY TO REMAIN WEST AND NORTH
OF THE AREA THROUGH MID WEEK.  THE SEVERE WEATHER POTENTIAL
MAY TREND UPWARD BY LATE WEEK INTO NEXT WEEKEND.
