DECREASE IN COVERAGE AND COME TO AN END. HOWEVER...AN UPPER LEVEL
LOW CURRENTLY OVER THE WESTERN PANHANDLE OF OKLAHOMA IS FORECAST
TO SLOWLY DRIFT EAST WHICH WILL PROLONG RAINFALL ACROSS PORTIONS
OF THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PLAINS. ADDITIONAL RAINFALL TOTALS
THROUGH FRIDAY ARE FORECAST TO RANGE FROM TWO TO FOUR INCHES
ACROSS CENTRAL KANSAS AND OKLAHOMA WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS.

THE NEXT STORM SUMMARY WILL BE ISSUED BY THE HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL
