Two approaching storm systems will combine to bring rain and thunderstorm chances to Oklahoma through Wednesday.

A big, slow-moving low pressure system is over the Rockies Sunday, and will nudge a cold front into the state Monday.  Also, the remnants of the Pacific Hurricane Norbert are moving northeast toward west Texas Sunday.  The Pacific moisture will stream into Texas and Oklahoma ahead of the approaching cold front.

These two features could lead to heavy rainfall and thunderstorms, beginning in the Panhandles today, then spreading southeast through the state with the cold front on Monday and Tuesday. 

Much cooler air will filter into the state behind the cold front, ushering in a Fall-like feel for teh rest of this week.
