.DISCUSSION...
Steep, mid level ascent will continue to increase through the
morning hours as the mid to upper low approaches from the west.
Latest reflectivity trend is already showing this with some
lightning now present over western north TX. Moderate rainfall
should begin to fill in along the I-44 and I-35 corridor by
sunrise. Most of the rainfall will shift east of I-35 by late
tonight, although a few showers will remain possible on the
backside of the low. Abundant cloud cover and precip will keep
afternoon temps on the chilly side near 50-55 for many locations.
Only a slight warmup is expected Sun since stratus still appears
it will linger over at least northern and central OK during the
day. Skies should generally begin to clear Monday.

The next chance of rain will arrive Tue-Wed with a cold front and
mid level vort max digging southward across the central plains.
Locations along and south of I-40 will have the highest chances
late Tue thru early Wed. More Spring like temps will arrive late
in the week. Additional rainfall will be possible Thu-Fri with a
mid to upper trough and another cold front.
