A gradual warming trend will continue as southerly flow returns to
the area...with some of the southwest counties reaching highs in the
100s by Friday. An upper level ridge positioned over Texas will
keep the area free of precipitation for the most part.
However...if there is any chance for rain it will be
across northern Oklahoma for any
lingering convection moving south out of Kansas over the next few
days. These chances will be the greatest on Friday going into
Saturday as a shortwave trough approaches.
The center of a mid and upper ridge will remain nearly stationary
over north Texas this weekend into early next week. This will
provide mainly dry and hot weather conditions. Farther north... a
surface boundary will be close to the Kansas/Oklahoma border
around Saturday and will gradually lift northward by Sunday into
Monday. A rather strong system is expected
to move across south central Canada around Wednesday of next week.
This system may push a rather decent cold front into the southern
plains around Wednesday or Thursday. Showers and storms will also
be possible with the frontal passage, if it gets this far south.
