An active pattern is setting up for the rest of the week here in Oklahoma. A cold front will set up just to our north in Kansas while low-level moisture increases ahead of it through the week. This combined with favorable upper-level flow will set the stage for some fairly high rain chances. 

Currently, parts of Green Country are labeled as "Abnormal Dry" by the U.S. Drought Monitor. This is caused by the lack of rainfall we have received in the past few weeks. This week's rains will likely put a large dent in the drought conditions across northeast Oklahoma. 

The highest rainfall amounts, through this week, will fall across the northern regions of our viewing area with some areas possibly receiving over 2 inches of rain. 

Be sure to check back as we continue to refine our rainfall forecast through the next several days.
