Discussion...
weak upglide will result in areas of light rain and drizzle
in central Oklahoma through middle morning. This area of lift should
gradually shift southward this morning. Elsewhere...scattered
showers continue to form along the Red River near a middle-level
trough axis. This axis will shift southward during the morning.

A decrease in cloud cover is expected across west
central/southwest Oklahoma and western North Texas this morning
and afternoon. Clouds should linger from central to southeast
Oklahoma. Most of the measurable rain should end by this evening
with additional clearing possible. Surface/low level winds will
become rather light this evening. This combined with the recent
rainfall may result in areas of fog...perhaps dense by Friday
morning.

With a light easterly flow early Friday (most areas)...low clouds
and fog that forms may be hard to erode during the morning.

Mainly dry and very warm weather is expected over the weekend into
early next week. Another frontal boundary is forecast to move into
the Southern Plains around Wednesday of next week. This will bring
another opportunity for rain and storms.
