.UPDATE...
All is quiet across the Four State Region attm and those
conditions should prevail through the overnight hours. Just some
thin cirrus was noted on IR imagery this evening and it should
continue to thin through the night as well. A complex of storms
across Northern Arkansas is associated with a weak disturbance
moving from northwest to southeast across the Southern Plains/
Lower Miss Valley. These storms may hold together as they move
southeast but every available prog suggests that these storms will
remain north and east of our region overnight. Did keep slight
chance pops across our extreme northeast zones overnight but
removed pop mention for the remainder of the region.

Temp, dewpoint and wind grids are in good shape so no additional
changes are expected attm.

Updated zone package out shortly...13.

AVIATION...
For the 19/00Z TAF period, VFR conditions will dominate much of
the period aside from a brief period of patchy fog near daybreak
at a few sites. High cirrus clouds will linger this evening with
cu field dissipating with the setting sun. Expect some additional
mid level clouds to gradually work into the region overnight with
cu returning during the daytime hours on Saturday. Convection is
expected to be very isolated once again so no mention has been
included in the current TAF issuance. Winds will be lgt/vrbl for
the overnight period, trending S/SW again on Saturday at 5-10 kts.
