.DISCUSSION...
Precipitation continues to dwindle over our area. Some lightning
is still being observed over SE OK but this too should dissipate
by sunrise. Cloud cover and continued rain chances throughout the
day under an upper low should keep it unseasonably cool this
afternoon, especially across NW OK. Expect the highest
thunderstorm chances near the Red River by late this afternoon and
evening, and then as far north as I-40 tonight.

Rain chances will decrease for most of the area by Monday under a
mid to upper shortwave ridge, although high plains moist
convection will move eastward during the overnight hours into Tue
morning with a mid level shortwave trough. Localized flooding will
be the main threat today through early Tue, although a few strong
to severe storms may produce strong wind gusts as well.

At least low chances of rainfall will continue through late Wed
night thanks to yet another mid to upper shortwave traversing the
plains trough within WNW flow. Solutions diverge a bit by next
weekend with the synoptic pattern but generally have an upper
ridge present over the ESE CONUS and zonal to WSW flow aloft over
the Southern Plains. Max temps will peak on Friday afternoon with
fairly stout SSW 850 mb flow present under higher heights. Some
locations across SW OK and western north TX will likely near or
exceed the triple digits. The GFS then suggests a cold front
stalling somewhere over our region Saturday but confidence is low
right now so only included mostly SChc PoPs. If it is correct,
flooding rains will again be possible by next weekend.
