.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 927 PM CDT Tue Aug 14 2018/


The hot spot for convection tonight has been along and south of a
boundary extending from northwest Oklahoma through southeast
Kansas. The synoptic cold front is still farther north, across
south central Kansas northeast toward Kansas City. The complex of
storms which has been affecting the OKC metro all night will
likely be sustained by the increase in the low level jet, though
the storms will move southeast and miss most of our eastern
Oklahoma counties.

The upper trough axis will gradually slide to the east overnight,
and the low level jet will be maintained ahead of it, which should
support scattered showers and storms overnight across eastern
Oklahoma. The best chance for storms continues to be after
midnight for most of the area, and even towards early morning
across western Arkansas. Rain may not spread into southeast
Oklahoma much at all, and that is reflected in the current

Updated the low temps, as most areas should stay pretty uniform
as last night, in the low to mid 70s. Severe potential should be
winding down, with the main focus on heavy rain overnight.
