Update...
with little in the way of radar activity over Oklahoma and West
Texas this evening...opted to reduce probability of precipitation for the overnight
period. Still expect at last scattered shower activity to affect
parts of far southwestern Oklahoma and western North Texas toward
Saturday morning. With the remnants of Odile more or less stalling
over West Texas...the threat of heavy rainfall has diminished
substantially. Still...some locally heavy rain may occur over
mainly western North Texas. The only other modification to the
forecast was to add patchy fog...as low level moisture remains
high...and winds are expected to become calm Saturday morning.
