Discussion...
weak vertical wind shear and a lack of a focusing mechanism will
keep storm chances low (but not zero) this evening and tomorrow.
Temperatures will be a few degrees above average, and humidities
will increase.

Thursday night into Friday, a cold front is still forecast to move
south into Oklahoma. This will bring much higher chances for rain
and thunderstorms. A few severe storms will be possible Thursday
night in northern Oklahoma.

Rain and storms will continue much of the weekend as the front
slowly dissipates over Oklahoma. Rain chances will remain in the
forecast in northern Oklahoma into early next week as upper-level
waves move through the nearly zonal flow over the Central Plains.
