.UPDATE...
Updated temperatures, dew point, and wind forecast for tonight.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Southerly winds have kept temperature from cooling off too
quickly once again this evening. Higher dew points--generally in
the mid-40Fs--are advecting northward as well.

Isentropic ascent associated with the moisture return has
resulted in stratus at 2000-3000 ft AGL across southeast Oklahoma.
Most short-term guidance indicates the low clouds will continue
to expand north and west tonight into central and north central
Oklahoma.

There will likely be a west to east gradient in low temperatures
as the low clouds are not expected to affect western Oklahoma and
adjacent parts of north Texas. Low temperatures across the west
are forecast to fall into the low 30Fs, while mid-40Fs are
expected farther east.
