.SHORT TERM...Today Through Tuesday Night

Another quiet night was ongoing across the LZK CWA...though warm
and muggy summer conditions were noted...especially in areas that
saw no appreciable rainfall on Sun. Some patchy fog was also
noted...and should see this continue through just after sunrise.

For the rest of this Mon...expect more diurnally driven afternoon
isolated to widely scattered SHRA/TSRA...with a resulting partly
cloudy sky. Temps should be a deg or two cooler than seen on Sun
primarily due to slightly increased cloud cover. May also see a
brief period midday where temps stall their normal warming as the
partial solar eclipse moves over the area. Even so...will still see
temps near or just above normal for late Aug. Heat index values
should also be a bit less oppressive today...though can`t completely
rule out some isolated areas briefly see heat index values over 105.

Another muggy night will be seen tonight..with any convection
becoming more isolated or eventually dissipate with the loss of
daytime heating. A cold front will be approaching from the north on
Tue into Tue night...with POPs increasing from north to south as a
result. Depending on the eventual timing of this front...still think
near or above normal temps will be seen across central/SRN sections
of the state...while cloud cover and increasing precip coverage will
tend to cool off NRN sections of the state. The coverage of
SHRA/TSRA will become more widespread by Tue evening into the
overnight hrs early Wed as the front progresses south.

&&

.LONG TERM...Wednesday Through Sunday

Showers and thunderstorms will continue on Wednesday, as the cold
front moves south. By Thursday, high pressure will push in from the
north, and the front will move south of the state, with rain chances
decreasing. End of the week will be pretty doggone pleasant for late
August, with lows in the 50s north to 60s central and south, and
highs in the upper 70s to mid 80s.

The front that moved through mid-week will stall out to the south of
Arkansas, then move back to the north a bit by Sunday, with rain
chances increasing once again. Temperatures will remain below
seasonal averages
