.DISCUSSION...
Quiet tonight with light winds and lows in the mid 40s to lower 50s.
Rain chances will return to the W/NW parts of the fa during the day
Tuesday as a shortwave approaches the region. This wave will move
SE/S across the northern/central Plains into Oklahoma by Wednesday
night. This wave will also cause a cold front to move across the
region Tuesday afternoon and night. Rain chances will continue
Tuesday night into Wednesday due to the shortwave and cold front. A
few of the storms may become strong to marginally severe Tuesday
afternoon/early evening.

Models show another wave quickly moving into the area behind the
above mentioned shortwave which could bring another brief chance for
showers and storms Thursday night along with another cold front.
After that models then begin to differ on how the upper pattern will
evolve over the weekend into early next week. Right now, it looks
like there may be a low chance for some showers and storms Sunday or
Monday as another storm system approaches the area but with the
uncertainties this will likely change and so kept any PoPs low.

Warmer temperatures are expected in most areas Tuesday before
another cool day on Wednesday. Clouds, rain, and cool air behind the
front will likely lead to highs in the mid/upper 50s to low 60s
across much of the area Wednesday. Temperatures are then expected to
warm through the end of the week and over the weekend.
