DISCUSSION...
A fast moving shortwave trough will move across the northern
Plains through tonight. This feature will help push a weak
surface boundary through part of the area on Sunday. The main
result will be a wind shift to a light northerly direction for
most areas.

A trough/low over Baja, will move slowly east through early next
week, as another trough moves across the western U.S. As this
occurs, mid and high clouds will increase and thickening across
much of Oklahoma and north Texas. By Tuesday night and Wednesday,
widely scattered rain showers may form as the trough moves across
the southern Plains. Better rain chances appear to be across the
eastern half of Oklahoma.

After the trough moves east on Wednesday, a breezy, northwest,
surface wind will develop. Meanwhile, the flow over the western
U.S. will amplify with northwest flow aloft prevailing. Typically
this pattern will usher in much colder air in December, but the
main result will be near average temperatures for the rest of the
work week.
