Area Forecast Discussion

.DISCUSSION...
Shortwave trough across eastern Oklahoma is beginning to fill this
morning with an area of showers and thunderstorms advancing farther
east into western Arkansas. Meanwhile, upper level ridge along the
Gulf coast continues to build farther west. The influence of the
ridge will help to shunt the shortwave a bit farther north, but
still think our northern and eastern areas will have a better
chance for showers and thunderstorms later today. So have kept the
previous pop forecast but have raised high temperatures for this
afternoon for much of east Texas where less cloud cover and lower
pops will be found. Also adjusted sky cover based on the latest
observations and trends. Updated text products have already been
sent. /19/
