Discussion...
with light winds and mostly clear skies...some patchy fog
possible this morning...mainly in areas which saw precipitation
yesterday. Any fog that does develop should burn off quickly this
morning. Showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible...mainly
over the southeast today as upper level trough gradually exits the
region. Dry weather then expected tonight and Sunday.

Thunderstorm chances return to northern Oklahoma Sunday night as another
upper level trough moves from the central/northern rockies into the
plains with the associated cold front sagging southward into far
northern Oklahoma. Thunderstorm chances persist over northern
parts of the region through Tuesday night as the frontal boundary
lingers in the area and additional disturbances move through the
Central Plains.

Dry weather returns by Wednesday as the upper trough slides off
to the east and ridge begins to build over the region. Warm and
dry weather then expected to persist through the remainder of the
forecast period as upper ridge dominates the southern U.S.
