Evening convection is likely to remain west of eastern Oklahoma
sites given stabilized conditions from earlier convection. Frontal
boundary will approach NE OK tomorrow afternoon with an uptick in

Discussion...
showers and thunderstorms that were across eastern Oklahoma earlier
today have pretty well dissipated and should be completely gone by
00z. So, will not mention in evening portion of the upcoming zones.
Could see some late night showers and storms across portions of northeast
Oklahoma again tonight as a cold front advances into central Kansas.
Shower and thunderstorm chances increase Friday night into Saturday
morning as the cold front advances into the area and a mid-level shortwave
sweeps across the plains and into the Mississippi Valley.

For the remainder of the forecast period...high pressure is expected to
prevail at the surface and aloft. This will bring rather benign weather
to the area with temperatures near normal for this time of year.
