.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 351 PM CDT Thu May 17 2018/

DISCUSSION...
Isolated storms will still be possible this evening, but the main
precipitation chances will begin this evening as the developing
storms near the Texas-New Mexico border move east toward the area.
There is a pretty good signal for a complex of storms to move into
the area with the highest coverage expected to be in the
southwest. These will likely weaken overnight as they move east
with the coverage decreasing and will keep the highest POPs this
evening. What is left of these storms will dissipate and/or move
out of the area Friday morning, with the next potential round of
storms tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow evening as another
shortwave approaches.

As has been advertised, the main wave ejects into the central
Plains Saturday and with it will be the highest precipitation
chances Saturday night, and the arrival of a cold front bringing
temperatures down from hot to seasonable for early next week. Any
lull after this wave moves out will be relatively brief as
precipitation chances return Sunday evening or Sunday night. And
we will remain under a general southwest flow aloft with various
shortwaves moving over the Plains with associated storm chances.
