Tonight into Thursday: With some pockets of dense fog remaining at the noon hour, NWS decided to extend the dense fog advisory through noon on Thursday across

the whole area. Some areas may not have dense fog this afternoon, but are expected to redevelop dense fog this evening.

The next upper wave will push across Texas tonight and into Oklahoma with rain expected to develop over the local area late tonight into sunrise Thursday. The upper energy will then lift northeast across the area on Thursday with rain spreading northeast over Missouri. Rainfall amounts with this next event are forecast to be in the quarter inch to three quarters of an inch range. Can`t rule out some localized flooding in low lying areas similar to last nights rainfall with the frozen soils causing a lot of this

to run off. Not expected to get widespread flooding.

Lows tonight will be mild in the upper 30s to mid 40s with highs on Thursday in the mid 40s to low 50s.

Thursday night into Friday morning: The upper level shortwave that moves through on Thursday will shift into the Great Lakes region on Thursday night, while the next upper low starts to push into the southern high plains. Models are suggesting another night with some dense fog developing and we may need to issue another dense fog advisory for Thursday night into Friday morning. A dry period is expected Thursday night into Friday before the next upper low begins to move into the area Friday night into Saturday night.

Friday night - Saturday night: The upper low will meander into the Texas panhandle region by Friday morning and into northeast Oklahoma on Friday night. Rain should spread back into the area with the low on Friday night with rain continuing into Saturday

and Saturday night as the low slowly tracks across the area. We are currently forecasting another quarter to three quarters of an inch of rain with this system. We have a high

confidence in getting rainfall (60-70%).

Temperatures next week: As we head into next week, there is high confidence(80-90%)in temperatures above 50 degrees for highs, especially outside of the 7 day forecast into the middle to later part of next week. By the end of next week, we may see some 60s over the area.
