NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORMAN OK
1038 AM CDT FRI MAY 9 2003

A WEAK NEARLY STATIONARY FRONT ACROSS NORTHERN OKLAHOMA AND A
DRYLINE JUST WEST OF OKLAHOMA CITY TO WICHITA FALLS WILL MOVE RATHER
LITTLE THROUGH THE DAY. A FEW STORMS WILL PROBABLY CONTINUE TO BE
SCATTERED ACROSS WESTERN NORTH TEXAS THROUGH THE EARLY AFTERNOON.
MORE STORMS SHOULD DEVELOP LATE THIS AFTERNOON... AND COULD BE
ALMOST ANYWHERE WITHIN OUR FORECAST AREA. THE POTENTIAL FOR SEVERE
STORMS IS QUITE HIGH AGAIN TODAY. FOR DETAILS... SEE OUR HAZARDOUS
WEATHER OUTLOOK.

MODEL GUIDANCE GENERALLY SUPPORTS THE GOING FORECAST. AVN MOS HIGHS
ARE A FEW DEGREES LOWER THAN OUR NUMBERS. SINCE THE OBSERVED HIGHS
YESTERDAY WERE A FEW DEGREES WARMER THAN GUIDANCE... THERE SEEMS TO
BE NO REASON YET TO ADJUST OUR TEMPERATURES. OTHER PARAMETERS IN
THE ZFP LOOK OKAY... ALTHOUGH DETAILS ARE BEING ADJUSTED IN THE
GRIDS. THIS WILL ONLY AFFECT THE AFM AND PERHAPS THE FWF... WHICH
WILL BE UPDATED SOON. THE ZFP WILL BE UPDATED TOWARD NOON TO DEAL
WITH TEMPORAL WORDING.

.NOW...
LATE THIS MORNING SATELLITE IMAGERY AND RADIOSONDE DATA INDICATED A
SMALL-SCALE UPPER TROUGH MOVING NORTHEAST ACROSS SOUTHWEST TEXAS.
THIS FEATURE...ASSOCIATED WITH AN INCREASE IN MID-LEVEL WIND
SPEED...IS EXPECTED TO MOVE TOWARD SOUTHWEST OKLAHOMA THROUGH THE
AFTERNOON. THIS WILL ENHANCE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR FAVORABLE FOR
SEVERE STORMS LATER TODAY.

AT THE SURFACE...A DRYLINE WAS NEARLY STATIONARY FROM WEST OF
ABILENE TO FREDERICK AND TO YUKON. A STATIONARY FRONT EXTENDED FROM
PONCA CITY TO EL RENO TO CHEYENNE. EARLY THIS AFTERNOON THE FRONT IS
EXPECTED TO MOVE NORTH TOWARD THE KANSAS BORDER AS A SURFACE LOW
PRESSURE CENTER FORMS IN SOUTHEAST COLORADO. THIS WILL ALLOW THE
DRYLINE TO MOVE WEST INTO WEST CENTRAL AND PART OF NORTHWEST
OKLAHOMA. WHEN THE DRYLINE BEGINS TO MOVE EAST LATER THIS AFTERNOON
IT IS EXPECTED TO BE POSITIONED FARTHER WEST THAN IT WAS YESTERDAY.

OTHER THAN A FEW STORMS IN NORTH TEXAS THIS MORNING...NEW STORMS ARE
EXPECTED TO FORM NEAR THE DRYLINE IN SOUTHWEST OKLAHOMA OR WESTERN
NORTH TEXAS AROUND MID AFTERNOON. STORMS THAT DO FORM WOULD BECOME
QUICKLY SEVERE IN THE HIGHLY UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE. THE
INCREASINGLY FAVORABLE WIND SHEAR WILL RAISE THE PROBABILITY OF
TORNADIC STORMS.

HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORMAN OK
1200 PM CDT FRI MAY 9 2003

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK COVERS NORTHERN...WESTERN...
CENTRAL...AND SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA...AND WESTERN NORTH TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT...

THUNDERSTORM OUTLOOK...
THERE IS A MODERATE RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH TONIGHT
ACROSS MOST OF OKLAHOMA. A SLIGHT RISK AREA SURROUNDS THE MODERATE
RISK AND AFFECTS MUCH OF FAR WESTERN AND SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA... AND
WESTERN NORTH TEXAS.

LOCATION...
THE MODERATE RISK AREA IS EAST OF A LINE FROM ALVA TO ALTUS... AND
NORTH OF A LINE FROM ALTUS TO ARDMORE TO COALGATE. THE SLIGHT RISK
AREA INCLUDES THE REST OF OKLAHOMA... AND WESTERN NORTH TEXAS.

TIMING...
ISOLATED SEVERE STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE EARLY THIS AFTERNOON IN
EXTREME SOUTHWEST OKLAHOMA AND ADJACENT PARTS OF TEXAS. MORE-
SIGNIFICANT STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP BY LATE AFTERNOON AND
CONTINUE WELL INTO THE NIGHT.

IMPACTS...
SOME OF THE THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING HAIL TO THE
SIZE OF BASEBALLS. WIND GUSTS TO 75 MPH AND TORNADOES WILL ALSO BE
POSSIBLE. SIGNIFICANT STRUCTURAL DAMAGE WILL BE POSSIBLE IN THE
STRONGEST STORMS.

RECOMMENDED ACTIONS...
STORM SPOTTER GROUPS AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PERSONNEL ACROSS THE
RISK AREA SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR SEVERE WEATHER OPERATIONS THIS
AFTERNOON THROUGH LATE TONIGHT.

DISCUSSION...
THE MAIN SURFACE FEATURE IS A DRYLINE THAT EXTENDED FROM NEAR ENID
OKLAHOMA TO NEAR VERNON TEXAS LATE THIS MORNING. THE DRYLINE IS
FORECAST TO DRIFT FARTHER WEST DURING THE AFTERNOON... PROBABLY
EXTENDING FROM NORTHWEST OKLAHOMA TO NEAR CHILDRESS BY LATE
AFTERNOON. A MID-LEVEL WAVE OVER SOUTHWEST TEXAS THIS MORNING WILL
ADVANCE TO THE NORTHEAST THIS AFTERNOON... AND WILL LIKELY PROVIDE
ADDITIONAL LIFT IN THE VICINITY OF THE DRYLINE. STORMS ARE EXPECTED
TO BECOME MORE NUMEROUS AND INCREASE IN INTENSITY DURING THE MID- TO
LATE-AFTERNOON HOURS AS THESE FEATURES COME TOGETHER. A CONTINUING
FEED OF LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE OVER THE RISK AREAS... ALONG WITH
FAVORABLE WIND PROFILES... WILL LIKELY SUSTAIN THE STORMS INTO THE
NIGHT.

PROBABILITY TABLE...
VALID THROUGH 700 AM CDT SATURDAY MAY 10.
PROBABILITY OF THUNDERSTORMS OCCURRING IN THE
NWS NORMAN COUNTY WARNING AREA...100 PERCENT.
PROBABILITY OF SEVERE STORMS...NEAR 100 PERCENT.

OTHER HAZARDOUS WEATHER...
NONE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY...

THUNDERSTORM OUTLOOK...
THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE SATURDAY AND THEN EACH DAY FROM MONDAY
THROUGH THURSDAY. THE DAYS WITH THE GREATEST RISK OF SEVERE STORMS
WILL BE NEXT TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY ACROSS THE ENTIRE AREA.

OTHER HAZARDOUS WEATHER...
NONE.

THE NEXT SCHEDULED HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK WILL BE ISSUED AT 7 AM
SATURDAY.

.NOW...
EARLY THIS AFTERNOON A SMALL-SCALE UPPER TROUGH WAS MOVING NORTHEAST
ACROSS SOUTHWEST TEXAS. THIS FEATURE...ASSOCIATED WITH AN INCREASE
IN MID-LEVEL WIND SPEED...IS EXPECTED TO MOVE TOWARD SOUTHWEST
OKLAHOMA THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THIS WILL ENHANCE VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR FAVORABLE FOR SEVERE STORMS LATER TODAY.

THE AREA OF GREATEST SURFACE-BASED INSTABILITY AT NOON EXTENDED FROM
NEAR ARDMORE TO NEAR STILLWATER. ALTHOUGH SOME MINOR SURFACE
CONVERGENCE WAS NOTED JUST WEST OF THIS AREA... IT DOES NOT YET
APPEAR TO BE SUFFICIENT TO OVERCOME THE SLOWLY WEAKENING CAP. THIS
IS LIKELY TO CHANGE DURING THE AFTERNOON AS SURFACE HEATING FURTHER
WEAKENS THE CAP AND THE UPPER TROUGH APPROACHES.

TO THE WEST... A DRYLINE FROM CENTRAL OKLAHOMA INTO WESTERN NORTH
TEXAS... AND A WEAK FRONT OVER NORTHWEST OKLAHOMA... WILL BOTH DRIFT
NORTHWEST DURING THE AFTERNOON. CONVERGENCE ALONG THESE BOUNDARIES
WILL CONTINUE TO GENERATE SCATTERED STORMS DESPITE THE MORE STABLE
ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS IN THOSE AREAS.

CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO BECOME INCREASINGLY FAVORABLE FOR
SUPERCELL THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT AS THE DAY PROGRESSES. STORMS
THAT DEVELOP DURING THE MID TO LATE AFTERNOON WILL HAVE THE
POTENTIAL TO BECOME SEVERE VERY QUICKLY... AND SOME MAY PRODUCE
TORNADOES.

WELL DEFINED S/W TROF EVIDENT IN 12Z UA DATA OVER NEW MEXICO APPEARS
TO BE AMPLIFYING PER BAND 10 WV IMAGERY FROM RAMSDIS OVER FAR WTEX
ATTM. PRESSURE FALLS ARE NOW INCREASING OVER NW OK..AND SFC WINDS
HAVE BACKED 40-60 DEGREES IN THE PAST COUPLE OF HRS OVR SW OK. AS
OF YET..SIGNIFICANT BOUNDARY LAYER MOISTURE HAS NOT WORKED BACK
NWWD..BUT EXPECT SIGNIFICANT AIRMASS DESTABILIZATION DURING THE NEXT
SEVERAL HOURS OVER MUCH OF SW OK/NW TX AS WINDS CONT TO
BACK/INCREASE. FIRST ATTEMPT AT SUSTAINED BL BASED CONVECTION
APPEARS TO HAVE FAILED FOR THE MOMENT TO THE WEST OF KABI..BUT
INCREASING LOW LEVEL VERTICAL VELOCITIES IS EXPECTED TO RESULT IN
RAPID SVR STORM DEVELOPMENT LATE THIS AFTERNOON. OTHER CONCERN FOR
THE OVERNIGHT HOURS IS THE POTENTIAL FOR CONVECTION TO DEVELOP THIS
EVENING ON THE HI PLAINS AND THEN SPREAD EAST/SOUTEAST ALONG AND
NORTH OF WARM FRONTAL ZONE THAT IS EXPECTED TO BECOME BETTER DEFINED
ACROSS NRN OK OR SRN KS.

SFC LOW WILL MOVE TO THE NORTHEAST OF OKLAHOMA RATHER QUICKLY ON
SATURDAY..AND SHUD RESULT IN VEERING LOW LEVEL FLOW. ALTHOUGH
MOISTURE MAY BE SOMEWHAT SLOW TO MIX OUT IN THE SE ZONES..POTENTIAL
FOR STORM INITIATION APPEARS TO BE LIMITED WITHIN THE BOUNDS OF OUR
CWA. DEEP MOISTURE SHUD FINALLY GET PUSHED SWD INTO TEXAS IN WAKE
OF THIS SYSTEM..GIVING A 36-48 HR BREAK IN THUNDERSTORM CHANCES.
HOWEVER..MOISTURE MAY BEGIN TO LEAK BACK NWD ENUF LATE MONDAY TO
ALLOW FOR STORM DEVELOPMENT OVR NW/W TEXAS.

LATEST MEDIUM RANGE MODEL GUIDANCE HINTS THAT A PERIOD OF WNW FLOW
ALOFT MAY BECOME ESTABLISHED OVER THE CENT/SRN PLAINS MID WEEK IN
WAKE OF STRONG GREAT LAKES SYSTEM..AND BEFORE WEST COAST TROF
RELOADS BY LATE IN THE WEEK. CHANCES FOR STORMS WILL INCREASE
TUE/WED AS INSTABILITY AXIS BECOMES RE-ESTABLISHED ONCE AGAIN A BIT
FARTHER NORTH BENEATH AXIS OF STRONGER MID LEVEL FLOW. IF NRLY
COMPONENT TO MID LEVEL FLOW DOES DEVELOP..PATTERN WILL BECOME
FAVORABLE FOR FORWARD PROPAGATING SVR MCS DEVELOPMENT FROM THE HI
PLAINS SEWD INTO THE SRN PLAINS.

.NOW...
AT 215 PM... A SURFACE BOUNDARY WAS OVER WESTERN NORTH TEXAS... FROM
WICHITA FALLS TO NEAR BENJAMIN. A FEW TOWERING CUMULUS CLOUDS WERE
EVIDENT ON SATELLITE IMAGERY ALONG THE BOUNDARY. AS MORE LOW-LEVEL
MOISTURE ARRIVES FROM THE SOUTH... INSTABILITY IS EXPECTED TO
INCREASE RAPIDLY IN THIS AREA. STORMS ARE LIKELY TO DEVELOP BY 330
PM AND MAY BECOME SEVERE VERY QUICKLY.

AN AXIS OF STRONG INSTABILITY REMAINS ACROSS SOUTH-CENTRAL AND
CENTRAL OKLAHOMA... ESPECIALLY FROM SEMINOLE TO SULPHUR TO WAURIKA.
AT THIS TIME... THERE DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE SUFFICIENT LOW-LEVEL
CONVERGENCE TO OVERCOME THE CAP IN THIS AREA. THIS SITUATION IS
LIKELY TO CHANGE LATER THIS AFTERNOON AS SURFACE HEATING FURTHER
WEAKENS THE CAP. IN ADDITION... IF THUNDERSTORMS DO DEVELOP OVER
NORTH TEXAS... THEIR OUTFLOW WILL LIKELY BE SUFFICIENT TO GENERATE
NEW STORMS FARTHER TO THE NORTHEAST.

A FEW HIGH-BASED STORMS FROM CENTRAL INTO SOUTHWEST OKLAHOMA WILL
CONTINUE THROUGH MID AFTERNOON. THESE STORMS MAY PRODUCE MARGINALLY
SEVERE HAIL AT TIMES.

.NOW...
AT 315 PM... A LOW-LEVEL BOUNDARY EXTENDED FROM NEAR SHAWNEE TO
NORMAN TO LAWTON AND INTO TEXAS NEAR VERNON. THIS BOUNDARY WAS VERY
NEAR THE DRYLINE IN SOUTHWEST OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN NORTH TEXAS...

PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WFO NORMAN OK
355 PM CDT FRI MAY 9 2003

...PRELIMINARY DAMAGE SURVEY RESULTS FROM THURSDAY'S TORNADO IN THE
MOORE AREA...

DAMAGE FROM THE TORNADO THAT STRUCK PARTS OF OKLAHOMA CITY AND MOORE
LATE THURSDAY AFTERNOON HAS BEEN SURVEYED BY THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE IN NORMAN. TWO DAMAGE SURVEY TEAMS WERE DISPATCHED EARLY
THIS MORNING. THIS PRELIMINARY REPORT COVERS THAT PART OF THE DAMAGE
TRACK IN CLEVELAND COUNTY...FROM SOUTH OKLAHOMA CITY NORTHEAST
THROUGH MOORE TO 89TH STREET. MAXIMUM DAMAGE INTENSITY IN THIS
SEGMENT OF THE DAMAGE TRACK WAS RATED F3...WITH A MAXIMUM WIDTH OF
1/4 MILE.

SPORADIC MINOR DAMAGE...MOSTLY IN THE FORM OF UPROOTED SHRUBS AND
BROKEN TREE BRANCHES...WAS FIRST OBSERVED IN SOUTH OKLAHOMA CITY IN
THE AREA OF BLACKWELDER AVENUE BETWEEN SW 149TH AND SW 134TH STREET.
THIS DAMAGE CONTINUED NORTHEAST ACROSS SW 134TH STREET /ALSO S 4TH
IN MOORE...AND HIGHWAY 37/ BETWEEN WESTERN AND SANTA FE. SEVERAL
HIGH-PROFILE POWER LINES WERE DOWNED ALONG THIS STRETCH OF 134TH
STREET. MINOR INTERMITTENT DAMAGE CONTINUED INTO RESIDENTIAL AREAS
JUST NORTHWEST OF 134TH AND SANTA FE...WITH STRUCTURAL DAMAGE
LIMITED MOSTLY TO DOWNED STOCKADE FENCES AND MINOR ROOF DAMAGE.

THE SURVEY TEAM CONCLUDED THAT DAMAGE UP TO THIS POINT WAS NOT
TORNADIC. IT MORE LIKELY WAS THE RESULT OF A PHENOMENON KNOWN AS A
REAR FLANK DOWNDRAFT...STRONG GENERALLY STRAIGHT LINE WINDS
RESULTING FROM A CONCENTRATED DOWNDRAFT OF AIR WHICH OCCURS ON THE
BACK SIDE OF A DEVELOPING STORM-SCALE CIRCULATION /OR MESOCYCLONE/.
RESEARCH SUGGESTS THAT THE REAR FLANK DOWNDRAFT OFTEN PLAYS A VITAL
ROLE IN THE FORMATION OF TORNADOES WITHIN A MESOCYCLONE.

IN THIS CASE...THE DAMAGE SURVEY ALSO SUGGESTS THIS.

TORNADIC DAMAGE BEGAN ALMOST PRECISELY AT THE INTERSECTION OF N 5TH
STREET AND SANTA FE IN MOORE...NEAR THE CHURCH OF LATTER DAY SAINTS.
THE TORNADO INITIALLY WAS QUITE NARROW BUT STRENGTHENED QUICKLY AS
IT MOVED EAST ALONG 5TH STREET...ACHIEVING F3 INTENSITY BRIEFLY
JUST EAST OF SANTA FE.

THE TORNADO THEN WIDENED AND TURNED NORTHEAST AS IT MOVED THROUGH
NORTHWEST MOORE...GENERALLY ALONG AND JUST NORTH OF 5TH STREET. IT
WIDENED TO APPROXIMATELY 1/4 MILE WIDE FROM MARKWELL AVE
NORTHEASTWARD...BUT FOR MOST OF THIS SEGMENT MAXIMUM DAMAGE WAS
RATED F2. THE NUMBER OF HOMES DESTROYED OR HEAVILY DAMAGED IS
DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE PRECISELY...BUT IS ESTIMATED TO BE BETWEEN
100 AND 200.

THE TORNADO INTENSIFIED TO F3 INTENSITY AGAIN SHORTLY AFTER CROSSING
JANEWAY AVENUE JUST SOUTH OF 12TH STREET. IT CROSSED 12TH STREET
BETWEEN JANEWAY AND INTERSTATE 35...CAUSING LOCAL F3 DAMAGE IN THE
CENTER OF THE 1/4 MILE-WIDE DAMAGE TRACK.

THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE IN MOORE OCCURRED NORTH OF 12TH STREET
AND WEST OF I-35...WHERE SEVERAL BUSINESSES WERE COMPLETELY
DESTROYED. DAMAGE IN THIS AREA WAS RATED STRONG F3...BASED ON THE
EXTENT OF SEVERE DAMAGE TO TWO HOTELS...THE FIRST CHRISTIAN
CHURCH...THE YOUNG CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER...A HEADSTART
PROGRAM BUILDING...SEVERAL RESTAURANTS... AND AN OFFICE BUILDING.
THE CHURCH...CHILD CARE CENTER...AND OFFICE BUILDING WERE LEVELED.

CROSSING I-35 BETWEEN 12TH STREET AND THE I-35 SHIELDS
JUNCTION...THE TORNADO APPEARED TO WEAKEN WHILE CONTINUING
NORTHEAST. SPORADIC F2 DAMAGE WAS FOUND FROM BROADWAY AVENUE
NORTHEASTWARD INTO THE SOUTHEAST PART OF THE HIGHLAND PARK ADDITION.
THIS SUBDIVISION ALSO WAS DAMAGED SEVERELY BY THE MAY 3RD 1999
TORNADO...BUT DAMAGE THIS TIME OCCURRED ABOUT TWO BLOCKS FARTHER
SOUTH.

THE TORNADO CONTINUED NORTHEAST ACROSS NE 27TH STREET NEAR AND JUST
EAST OF POLE ROAD...CROSSING MOSTLY OPEN AREA AROUND EASTERN AVENUE
AND THE LAKESIDE GOLF COURSE. DAMAGE IN THIS AREA WAS RATED
F1...MAINLY DUE TO THE RELATIVE LACK OF MAN-MADE STRUCTURES. BUT AS
THE TORNADO CONTINUED NORTHEAST TOWARD SE 89TH STREET IT CLIPPED A
RESIDENTIAL AREA JUST WEST OF 89TH AND BRYANT...CAUSING F2 DAMAGE IN
THE NORTHWEST PART OF THE AREA.

IT IS WORTH NOTING THAT THE DAMAGE TRACK BETWEEN NE 27TH IN
MOORE...AND SE 89TH IN OKLAHOMA CITY...COINCIDES EXACTLY AND
PRECISELY WITH THE DAMAGE TRACK FROM THE MAY 3RD 1999 TORNADO. IN
FACT...THE MAY 3RD TORNADO ALSO STRUCK THE LAKESIDE GOLF COURSE
DIRECTLY...AND THE NORTHWEST PART OF THE RESIDENTIAL AREA JUST WEST
OF 89TH AND BRYANT.

FINAL NUMBERS ON THIS TORNADO...INCLUDING TOTAL PATH LENGTH...
OVERALL MAXIMUM WIDTH...AND F-SCALE...WILL BE DETERMINED ONCE DAMAGE
SURVEY RESULTS FROM OKLAHOMA COUNTY ARE EXAMINED. A SUMMARY OF
DAMAGE FROM THAT PART OF THE TRACK WILL BE ISSUED LATER THIS
AFTERNOON.

147 PM CDT FRI MAY 9 2003

WELL DEFINED S/W TROF EVIDENT IN 12Z UA DATA OVER NEW MEXICO APPEARS
TO BE AMPLIFYING PER BAND 10 WV IMAGERY FROM RAMSDIS OVER FAR WTEX
ATTM. PRESSURE FALLS ARE NOW INCREASING OVER NW OK..AND SFC WINDS
HAVE BACKED 40-60 DEGREES IN THE PAST COUPLE OF HRS OVR SW OK. AS
OF YET..SIGNIFICANT BOUNDARY LAYER MOISTURE HAS NOT WORKED BACK
NWWD..BUT EXPECT SIGNIFICANT AIRMASS DESTABILIZATION DURING THE NEXT
SEVERAL HOURS OVER MUCH OF SW OK/NW TX AS WINDS CONT TO
BACK/INCREASE. FIRST ATTEMPT AT SUSTAINED BL BASED CONVECTION
APPEARS TO HAVE FAILED FOR THE MOMENT TO THE WEST OF KABI..BUT
INCREASING LOW LEVEL VERTICAL VELOCITIES IS EXPECTED TO RESULT IN
RAPID SVR STORM DEVELOPMENT LATE THIS AFTERNOON. OTHER CONCERN FOR
THE OVERNIGHT HOURS IS THE POTENTIAL FOR CONVECTION TO DEVELOP THIS
EVENING ON THE HI PLAINS AND THEN SPREAD EAST/SOUTEAST ALONG AND
NORTH OF WARM FRONTAL ZONE THAT IS EXPECTED TO BECOME BETTER DEFINED
ACROSS NRN OK OR SRN KS.

SFC LOW WILL MOVE TO THE NORTHEAST OF OKLAHOMA RATHER QUICKLY ON
SATURDAY..AND SHUD RESULT IN VEERING LOW LEVEL FLOW. ALTHOUGH
MOISTURE MAY BE SOMEWHAT SLOW TO MIX OUT IN THE SE ZONES..POTENTIAL
FOR STORM INITIATION APPEARS TO BE LIMITED WITHIN THE BOUNDS OF OUR
CWA. DEEP MOISTURE SHUD FINALLY GET PUSHED SWD INTO TEXAS IN WAKE
OF THIS SYSTEM..GIVING A 36-48 HR BREAK IN THUNDERSTORM CHANCES.
HOWEVER..MOISTURE MAY BEGIN TO LEAK BACK NWD ENUF LATE MONDAY TO
ALLOW FOR STORM DEVELOPMENT OVR NW/W TEXAS.

LATEST MEDIUM RANGE MODEL GUIDANCE HINTS THAT A PERIOD OF WNW FLOW
ALOFT MAY BECOME ESTABLISHED OVER THE CENT/SRN PLAINS MID WEEK IN
WAKE OF STRONG GREAT LAKES SYSTEM..AND BEFORE WEST COAST TROF
RELOADS BY LATE IN THE WEEK. CHANCES FOR STORMS WILL INCREASE
TUE/WED AS INSTABILITY AXIS BECOMES RE-ESTABLISHED ONCE AGAIN A BIT
FARTHER NORTH BENEATH AXIS OF STRONGER MID LEVEL FLOW. IF NRLY
COMPONENT TO MID LEVEL FLOW DOES DEVELOP..PATTERN WILL BECOME
FAVORABLE FOR FORWARD PROPAGATING SVR MCS DEVELOPMENT FROM THE HI
PLAINS SEWD INTO THE SRN PLAINS.
