Discussion...
satellite imagery suggests the possibility of a few isolated
showers late this afternoon, most likely over our far western
counties. Minimal coverage is expected.

Otherwise, the next couple of days should be warm, with little or
no rainfall.

Beginning Thursday, moisture and lift will begin to increase
across the region in advance of a large western U.S. Trough. Waves
along the eastern edge of the trough will bring periodic chances
for showers and thunderstorms across Oklahoma and North Texas into
next week. Rainfall will likely be enhanced, particularly in
southeast Oklahoma, as the remains of tropical storm Imelda move
into that area about Friday.
