Area Forecast Discussion

.DISCUSSION...
Dry and mild conditions today ahead of approaching storm system
which will provide widespread rains across the region Saturday
into Sunday. The recent strong troughs and associated frontal
passages have scoured much of the Gulf of Mexico of quality low
level moisture. Despite a persistent strong low level jet ahead of
the aforementioned storm system, low level moisture will struggle
to increase across the forecast area which will largely limit
available instability. As such widespread showers with embedded
thunderstorms are expected to prevail with a few strong storms
possible Saturday over far SE OK nearer the sfc warm front.
Otherwise, beneficial rains are expected with forecast precip
amounts well below any flooding concerns. Showers end on Sunday
with cloudy and cool conditions prevailing before a return to
nearer normal high temps for early next week.

The next cold front passes Tuesday night into Wednesday with a
chance of showers. The forecast weather pattern continues to
appear rather tranquil compared to typical mid Spring conditions.
