some showers/storms will be possible the rest of this evening into
across parts of southern OK and western North Texas. Rain chances
will continue for southeast parts of the forecast area for at least part of the
overnight/early Sunday morning hours. With this in mind added
probability of precipitation/weather for the rest of the evening and after 6z period. Adjusted
sky cover to account for the current clouds across southern parts
of the forecast area. Otherwise rest of forecast looks good. Updates out

determining rain chances through this evening over southern
Oklahoma and North Texas is the main challenge of the day.
Through 10 PM this evening...think there may be enough
instability...surface heating...and convergence along the weak
cold front to produce isolated storms near and south of a Quanah
Texas to Waurika to Atoka line. Severe storms seem unlikely...
though they may produce gusty winds and local downpours as they
will be slow movers. Kept 20 percent chance in these areas. Storm
coverage will be sparse at best and may not occur at all as
capping is rather strong.
After 10 PM tonight...generally quiet conditions with clearing
skies are expected. Some patchy fog may form across parts of the
area...mainly east of an Alva to Waurika line...but did not
mention due to low confidence.
Sunday through next Saturday...dry weather and mainly above
average temperatures are forecast as a middle/upper ridge will
generally be in control. Rain chances appear to be too low to
