Discussion...
northerly winds can be expected today...as a cold front moves
into northern and central Texas. Winds will quickly shift back to
the south however late this afternoon and tonight. Meanwhile...
sprinkles may be associated with middle-level clouds this morning...
especially across north central Oklahoma.

A fast moving system will enter the Pacific northwest late
tonight and will be located over the upper Mississippi Valley by
early Sunday. This system will push another cold front through
most of Oklahoma. Thunderstorms may develop along the front in
south central and southeast Oklahoma...as the surface boundary
encounters better moisture.

A trough over the southwest United States and Mexico...is
expected to move across Texas on Tuesday. This will bring an
increase in clouds and storm/shower chances...especially across
the southern half of Oklahoma and North Texas.

A weak front will bring additional chances for showers and storms
mainly over the eastern half of Oklahoma on Thursday...with
perhaps a stronger front arriving Friday.
