a breezy northwest wind will diminish during the late afternoon/early
evening and will become light southwest to west overnight. With a
mainly clear sky this evening, temperatures will cool rather
quickly as sunset approaches.

After a rather warm day Monday, Tuesday will bring changes in the
form of a breezy south wind and higher humidity. Most of this
will occur during the second half of the day. A nearly stationary
low west of baja, will open and lift northeast late Tuesday into
Wednesday. By Wednesday afternoon, lift associated with this
feature will bring a decent chance of rain to parts of Oklahoma
and western North Texas. Meanwhile, a northern stream trough will
help drive cooler/colder air into northern Oklahoma by late
Wednesday/early Thursday. The front is expected to clear most of
Oklahoma and North Texas, but will stall within southwest flow
aloft.

With a frontal boundary close to southern Oklahoma, precipitation
chances will increase again by late Thursday into Friday as another
trough/low to our west approaches. How quickly east the next
system moves is somewhat uncertain, but the main influence should
be east of Oklahoma by late Saturday.
