UPDATE...

HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS OVER THE MIDSOUTH THIS EVENING. A LITTLE BIT
OF CIRRUS IS MOVING THROUGH THE AREA BUT HAS NOT HAD MUCH EFFECT
ON THE TEMPERATURES. TEMPERATURES CURRENTLY RANGE FROM THE MID 50S
TO THE LOWER 60S. EXPECT LOWS TO DROP INTO THE UPPER 40S TO THE
MID 50S. CURRENT FORECAST LOOKS GOOD...NO UPDATES ARE EXPECTED.

DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 222 PM CDT FRI OCT 24 2014/

SKIES ARE MOSTLY SUNNY ACROSS MUCH OF THE FORECAST AREA THIS
AFTERNOON WITH TEMPERATURES RANGING FROM THE UPPER 60S TO THE MID 70S.
HIGH PRESSURE REMAIN IN CONTROL ACROSS MUCH OF THE EASTERN U.S.
AND WILL REMAIN IN PLACE TONIGHT AND FOR MUCH OF THE WEEKEND. AS A
RESULT DRY WEATHER WILL CONTINUE THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT. TEMPERATURES
WILL BE SEVERAL DEGREES WARMER OVER THE WEEKEND WITH HIGHS AROUND
80 ON SATURDAY AND IN THE LOW TO MID 80S ON SUNDAY.

BY MONDAY...A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE INTO THE CENTRAL PLAINS.
MOISTURE WILL SLOWLY INCREASE ACROSS THE REGION AHEAD OF THE FRONT
BUT WILL REMAIN LIMITED SO DRY WEATHER SHOULD CONTINUE FOR MONDAY
AND MONDAY NIGHT.

BY TUESDAY THE COLD FRONT WILL ENTER WESTERN ARKANSAS AND MOISTURE
WILL BECOME SUFFICIENT THAT SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD
DEVELOP ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA. WITH MORE CLOUDS IN THE AREA
TEMPERATURES SHOULD BE COOLER WITH HIGHS MAINLY IN THE 70S. AS THE
COLD FRONT MOVES INTO THE FORECAST AREA TUESDAY NIGHT...THE CHANCE
OF THUNDERSTORMS WILL INCREASE.

BY WEDNESDAY...THE COLD FRONT WILL STALL OUT JUST SOUTH OF THE
FORECAST AREA SO THERE WILL STILL BE A CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS FOR
BOTH WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY. COOLER AIR WILL START MOVING INTO THE
REGION BEHIND THE FRONT SO TEMPERATURES BE AT OR SLIGHT BELOW
NORMAL LEVELS.

BY THURSDAY NIGHT...THE FRONT WILL HAVE MOVED FAR ENOUGH AWAY FROM
THE FORECAST AREA TO END THE THREAT OF RAIN. HIGH PRESSURE WILL
BECOME MORE ESTABLISHED OVER THE CENTRAL U.S. BY NEXT FRIDAY
MAKING THINGS DRY AND COOL.
