isolated showers and perhaps a brief weak storm possible through
the morning hours across southern and northern portions of
Oklahoma. With weakening expected next several hours, central
parts of Oklahoma expected to stay dry. Hard to tie showers over
southern Oklahoma to anything other than lingering mid-level moist
layer, with activity over southern Kansas into far northern
Oklahoma an extension of passing wave/speed Max moving around
Great Lakes upper low. Stalled frontal boundary extending
east/west just north of I-40 expected to retreat north this
afternoon and should take primary focus of afternoon convection up
into Kansas.

Developing mesoscale convective vortex associated with southern Texas Panhandle
dissipating mesoscale convective system may have impacts on southwest portions of our County Warning Area
this afternoon allowing higher chances of convection. Pops were
raised a bit across western North Texas but majority of additional
storms should be south of our County Warning Area.

Strong trough still progd to move through northern and Central
Plains Tuesday night and Wednesday, which will support keeping low
pops across far northern Oklahoma. Otherwise, overall warming
trend and dry conditions through the week. Next opportunity for
organized rain activity still appears to be Friday into the
weekend with arrival of another strong cold front. Still some run
to run inconsistencies and overall agreement among medium range
models. Therefore, confidence is still somewhat low on areas of
highest chances for rain. Model trends would suggest mainly
northern/northeast parts of Oklahoma.
