EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
A weak cold front will settle across the region on Friday and
provide a focus for thunderstorm develop Friday evening
and overnight.  Currently it appears that thunderstorm chances
will remain low during this time, however should any storm
develop, severe weather potential would exist.
A more widespread and potentially significant severe weather
event is expected on Saturday.  Storms are likely to develop
near the Oklahoma Kansas border by late afternoon, and continue
to develop southward as a cold front and dryline boundaries
become an increasing focus.  Extreme instability and strong
winds aloft will allow for supercells capable of very large
hail, damaging winds, and tornado potential.  Storms will
spread southeastward Saturday night with a continued
severe weather threat. Dry weather is expected Sunday into
Monday with low thunderstorm chances returning toward the
middle of next week.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PLANNING STATEMENT...
Severe weather watches and warnings should be anticipated Saturday
afternoon through Saturday night.  The holiday weekend will
provide numerous outdoor exposures which will further increase
the potential for a rapid safety response.  Closely monitor the latest
forecasts and updates.
