Discussion...
will continue to see some bands of rain affect mainly eastern two-
thirds of the area late today into this evening. With tropical
airmass in place we are receiving higher rainfall rates than would
otherwise be anticipated with this type of activity. Will
therefore keep the Flash Flood Watch for current area through 12z
Monday morning.

There remains a low chance for a few isolated storms across far
western sections of the area late today... would be mainly a hail
threat along with isolated heavy rain.

Another upper shortwave will approach from the southwest on Monday
afternoon with a few more showers and thunderstorms. However much of
the more widespread heavy rainfall is expected to remain south of
the Red River.

With modest middle level flow will continue to see minor ripples move
through porviding at least some opportunity for showers and
thunderstorms through the middle part of the upcoming week. More
substantial storm system may impact the Southern Plains by the end
of the week.
