.DISCUSSION...
Light and variable surface winds this morning to become southerly
today as surface high shifts east ahead of an area of low
pressure across the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles. Temperatures
today to climb into the low to mid 70s across the Four State
Region. With an enhanced pressure gradient across much of east and
northeast Texas, wind speeds are forecast to increase to 15 to 20
mph. Latest model guidance, however, keeps wind speeds below Lake
Wind Advisory criteria just shy of 20 mph with strongest winds
lasting only a couple hours around midday.

Isolated to widely scattered showers will be possible across Deep
East Texas and north Louisiana overnight as a cold front moves
across the region. Showers to shift east across north Louisiana
on Wednesday before exiting the region by sunset. Overnight lows
to average in the mid 50s with highs on Wednesday in the 60s.

Mostly clear skies expected on Wednesday night as weak upper-level
ridging becomes established over the region. Temperatures on
Wednesday night to fall into the 30s areawide.

A persistent pattern, characterized by upper-level ridging
allowing for mostly clear to partly cloudy skies and surface
ridging maintaining cool temperatures with highs in the 50s and
lows in the 30s, is expected through the remainder of the
forecast period. Otherwise, light freeze conditions expected
across southern Arkansas and southeast Oklahoma through the
extended forecast period. /05/
