DISCUSSION...  
CURRENTLY MID LEVEL VORT MAXES RESIDE OVER NORTHWESTERN OK AND  
OVER FAR WEST TX WHICH WILL AMALGAMATE OVER THE ARKLATEX REGION  
OVERNIGHT. THE RESULT WILL BE EXPANDING PRECIP ACROSS SE OK  
THROUGH WESTERN AR LATE TONIGHT AND CONTINUING THROUGH THURSDAY  
MORNING BEFORE THE WAVE PUSHES FURTHER EASTWARD AND PRECIP  
FOLLOWS. A BRIEF LULL IN PRECIP CHANCES IS EXPECTED THURSDAY NIGHT  
THROUGH FRIDAY BEFORE A PERIOD OF UNSETTLED WEATHER RESUMES.  
 
DEVELOPING WARM ADVECTION PATTERN WILL SUPPORT A CHANCE OF  
CONVECTION ACROSS NORTHERN AREAS FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY  
MORNING. THE TRAILING COLD FRONT ASSOCIATED WITH THE PASSING WAVE  
WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION ON SATURDAY WITH CONVECTION LIKELY  
CAPPED ALONG THE BOUNDARY THROUGH THE DAY, WITH ANY BOUNDARY  
FOCUSED STORMS HOLDING OFF UNTIL THE EVENING HOURS. FLOW ALOFT  
WILL HAVE TRANSITIONED TO A FAST ZONAL PATTERN ACROSS MUCH OF THE  
CONUS BY EARLY NEXT WEEK, AND THE AFOREMENTIONED BOUNDARY IS SHOWN  
TO LIFT NORTHWARD THOUGH THE EXACT PLACEMENT OF THE BAROCLINIC  
ZONE REMAINS UNCERTAIN. THE PROXIMITY OF THE SFC BOUNDARY AND THE  
INHERENTLY UNSETTLED FLOW WILL SUPPORT CONVECTIVE CHANCES THROUGH  
EARLY NEXT WEEK. A MORE SUBSTANTIAL WAVE CONTINUES TO BE SHOW  
MOVING INTO THE PLAINS DURING THE TUES/WED TIMEFRAME. THROUGHOUT  
THIS PERIOD SUFFICIENT INSTABILITY AND SHEAR WILL SUPPORT A RISK  
OF SEVERE WEATHER WHICH IS CERTAINLY NOT ATYPICAL FOR LATE APRIL.
