.AVIATION...
CONCERNING TAF SITES KTUL/KRVS/KBVO/KMLC/KXNA/KFYV/KFSM/KROG.
MVFR ceilings are expected to persist at all sites at least
through early evening, with the possible exception of KMLC which
is on the edge of the stratus deck. There are some breaks in the
low clouds across eastern Oklahoma per latest vis imagery, so
there may be temporary holes that develop within the low cloud
deck with afternoon mixing. MVFR ceilings may break up across
northeast Oklahoma tonight but they will likely remain across
northwest Arkansas through most of the forecast period.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 1124 AM CDT Thu Mar 30 2017/

DISCUSSION...
It will be a slow warmup today, with widespread wrap around
clouds/cyclonic flow associated with the departing upper low. Some
light returns are showing up on area radars as well, so any light
rain/drizzle is making it feel even more unpleasant this morning.

Expect clouds to hang around for much of the day, with possible
clearing from the southwest late. There will be little change in
temperature from current values. We should clear out tonight with
a much nicer day on tap for tomorrow with highs in the upper 60s
and 70s. Next chance for storms arrives late Saturday into Sunday.
