Moisture increases from the Gulf continued over extreme southeast
Kansas and the Missouri Ozarks today. This pattern will set the
stage for another widespread rainfall event as we progress into
Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving weekend.

The frontal system is expected to stall somewhere across
Arkansas, but will be close enough for post frontal showers
through the weekend.

morning, shifting all precipitation east of the area by Sunday

We are officially forecasting widespread rainfall amounts ranging
from 2 - 5 inches.

Frontal system will slowly push southward through the period with
a southwesterly flow aloft. Will retain the good low level
warm/moist advection into the region and should see ceilings
gradually diminish through the nighttime hours. Have kept in MVFR
through much of the night, but dip into IFR towards morning. With
fairly strong low level flow, will likely see some decent low
