.DISCUSSION...
Fire danger continues to be the main forecast concern in the
short term. The current red flag warning will continue until 9 pm
this evening, and we will also issue a fire weather watch for
parts of northeast Oklahoma for Wednesday afternoon and evening.
Gusty northwest winds and a much drier airmass will overspread the
area behind a cold front that will move through overnight
tonight. Fire weather conditions will worsen during the day
Wednesday across a larger area than seen today as a result.

Some much needed rain appears to be on the way for the weekend as
a storm system moves into the southern Plains. This system will be
taking a southerly track, so the severe weather threat appears
quite minimal, but beneficial rains should occur in many
locations. Temperatures will be below normal after today through
the weekend.

Drier and warmer weather will return early next week, with
temperatures near the seasonal normals.

Stayed close to guidance temperatures the next couple days.
