.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 325 AM CDT Sun Oct 21 2018/

DISCUSSION...
The mild and dry airmass will remain in place into early next
week while a short-wave upper ridge passes over the central and
southern plains. On Tuesday, a larger-scale upper trough
approaches Oklahoma from the southwest and is forecast to become
more progressive into mid-week. This will bring lift sufficient
for some light rain late Tuesday and Wednesday. Amounts have
trended lighter over recent model runs. Northern Oklahoma may see
around 0.1 inch while areas south of the Red River are expecting
around a half inch or a bit more. This wave will pass east of
Oklahoma late Wednesday with drier air and northwesterly flow. A
front from the north is expected Saturday, but as with the
previous front, no cold air is set to enter the southern plains in
its wake. Mild weather is expected through next week.
