A FEW SHOWERS AND STORMS REMAIN OVER SOUTHWESTERN KS AND THE  
EASTERN PANHANDLES EARLY THIS MORNING. THIS ACTIVITY WILL CONTINUE  
TO WANE APPROACHING SUNRISE, AS FORCING REMAINS VERY LIMITED UNDER  
THE RIDGE. SOME CLOUD DEBRIS WILL LINGER OVER THIS AREA THROUGH  
THE LATE MORNING KEEPING TEMPS FROM RISING TOO QUICKLY BUT BY THIS  
AFTERNOON, LITTLE WILL REMAIN. PREFRONTAL WARMING SHOULD RESULT IN  
SLIGHTLY WARMER MAX TEMPS THIS AFTERNOON, ESPECIALLY ALONG I44.  
MOST SOLUTIONS CONTINUE TO REDUCE THEIR QPF OUTPUT THROUGH  
TOMORROW WITH THE COLD FRONT LIKELY DUE TO LOW MID TO UPPER  
MOISTURE AND BROAD SCALE ASCENT. THE EXCEPTION MAY BE ACROSS  
NORTHERN AND EASTERN OK THROUGH EARLY MON AFTERNOON BUT EVEN THIS  
AREA IS BEGINNING TO LOOK BLEAK. DECIDED TO KEEP HIGH CHANCES EAST  
OF I-35 DURING THIS TIME BUT WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED IF THEY'RE  
REDUCED WITH THE AFTERNOON PACKAGE.  
 
THE COLD FRONT WILL BE NEAR THE RED RIVER BY MON 18Z AND MUCH  
DRIER AIR WILL FOLLOW IT. TEMPS WILL DROP WELL BELOW AVERAGE  
DURING THE FIRST HALF OF THE WEEK, AND NEAR RECORD LOWS (UPPER 50S  
TO LOW 60S) ARE EXPECTED AREA WIDE BY WED MORNING UNDER THE  
SURFACE RIDGE. THE TREND THROUGH THE LAST HALF OF THE WEEK WILL BE  
WARMING TEMPS, ALTHOUGH LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL BE SLOWER TO  
RETURN WITH THE GULF "SHUT-OFF" FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME SO  
DO NOT ANTICIPATE ANY HEAT HEADLINES FOR QUITE SOME TIME. A  
SHORTWAVE TROUGH IS THEN EXPECTED TO ROTATE AROUND THE EASTERN  
FRINGE OF THE UPPER RIDGE SOMETIME NEXT WEEKEND. RIGHT NOW, SCHC  
POPS HAVE LIMITED TO NW OK FOR SUN MORNING AS CONFIDENCE IS VERY  
LOW WITH THIS FEATURE.
