16-17Z...HAVING ALREADY CLIMBED INTO THE LOWER/MID 50S. SFC

NRN SECTIONS OF THE FORECAST AREA THIS AFTERNOON. AN ATTENDENT
COLD FRONT OVER NW TX/CNTRL OK/SW MO WILL CONTINUE TO SHIFT SE
ACROSS OK/WRN AR THIS AFTERNOON...BEFORE ENTERING THE REGION LATER
THIS EVENING.

HAVE UPDATED THE FORECAST TO REFLECT PARTLY CLOUDY CONDITIONS FOR
EXTREME SE OK/SW AR...AND BEEFED UP SKY CONDITIONS SLIGHTLY TO
REFLECT MOSTLY CLEAR CONDITIONS FARTHER S AS THE CIRRUS MAY SHIFT
FARTHER S. HAVE ALSO BUMPED UP MAX TEMPS A COUPLE OF DEGREES PER
CURRENT TRENDS AND THE WARMING SW WINDS...ESPECIALLY OVER E TX/N
LA/SCNTRL AR. OTHERWISE...THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST IS ON
