Discussion...
storms will continue to develop through the afternoon and will
become more numerous as better forcing overspreads the Southern
Plains. The risk of severe weather will gradually decrease as
storms move/develop northward into central and northern Oklahoma
and sunset approaches.

Have also issued a Flash Flood Watch through late Monday evening
for a large part of western and central Oklahoma and part of
western North Texas. A little uncertain on convective trends into
this evening across western North Texas and southwest Oklahoma...but
the near term may hold the greatest risk of heavy rain amounts
and flash flooding. Overnight into Monday...several rounds of
rain should result in rises on rivers/streams...especially west
central Oklahoma...where heavy rain has occurred over the past 1
to 2 weeks.

Rain chances...although lower...will continue into Tuesday before
an upper low moves east of Oklahoma.

Generally dry conditions are expected Wednesday into the early
part of the weekend with ridging over the central US. Another
trough will begin to influence our weather next Sunday.
