A deepening trough located across the Gulf of California allowed a
plentiful fetch of moisture into the region today. As a result,
light rain showers and cloudy skies continued through the
day...gradually tapering off this evening. Winds were generally
out of the east at about 5 to 10 miles per hour. High temperatures
for the day occurred earlier this morning, dropping several
degrees by this afternoon.
A few scattered light rain showers and drizzle continue this
evening with the bulk of precipitation occurring across central
Arkansas and Kansas. Winds will remain light and variable
overnight becoming more northwesterly by Sunday morning. Another
round of scattered showers may develop overnight across northern
Oklahoma as an upper shortwave trough moves through.
Rain chances will taper off through Sunday morning with
temperatures dropping into the upper 30s and low 40s. Skies will
begin to clear from west to east through the afternoon. High
temperatures on Sunday will remain cool with most locations seeing
temperatures reaching the upper 40s to low 50s.
