DISCUSSION...
UPPER LEVEL LOW OVER THE NORTHERN SOUTH PLAINS WILL CONTINUE TO
MOVE EAST INTO SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA/NORTHERN TEXAS TONIGHT. THE
PANHANDLES WILL REMAIN IN A WRAP AROUND BAND OF SHOWERS FOR MUCH
OF THE NIGHT. SOME LINGERING SHOWERS WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE
SOUTHEAST TEXAS PANHANDLE ON TUESDAY...BUT FOR THE MOST PART THIS
RAIN EVENT WILL BE COMING TO AN END.

POSITIVELY TILTED UPPER RIDGE WILL MOVE SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE ROCKIES
AND PLAINS WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY AND THEN IT WILL SET UP SHOP
OVER THE SOUTHERN HIGH PLAINS SATURDAY AND THEN IT WILL GET
SUPPRESSED BY SUNDAY WHICH WOULD ALLOW A COUPLE OF SHORT WAVE
TROUGHS TO MOVE OVER. THESE WAVES COULD TOUCH OFF A FEW SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS.
