Discussion...
upper wave, currently located over western Texas/southwest
Oklahoma will continue to dive southeast overnight. Although area
radars picking up mid level light echos spreading into northeast
Oklahoma, air-mass remains dry in the low levels with precipitation
not reaching the ground given current ceiling heights/latest
surface observations.

Could still see some widely scattered areas of light rain spread
into portions of eastern Oklahoma overnight, generally west of
Highway 75. Precipitation could mix with a few snow flakes
across portion of NE OK, however no significant impacts are
anticipated. Update has been sent to mainly tweak hourly short
term trends, otherwise forecast on track with no significant
changes at this time.
