.DISCUSSION...
Dewpoint discontinuity pretty much depicts boundary
location across SE OK and WC AR this afternoon. Widely scattered
showers and thunderstorm remain ongoing across SE OK this
afternoon. Will use a pre first period as coverage at 00z is
expected to be extremely limited to nil across the aforementioned
area. Otherwise...atypically cool high pressure continues to sink
into the southern plains...and will offer settled and below normal
temperatures for the next several days. Tropical depression Harvey
is expected to strengthen as it moves northwest through the
Gulf...and may become a hurricane by Friday as it approaches the
Texas coast. At this time, post landfall impacts from Harvey
appear limited...at least for this forecast cycle. At this
time...will keep low rain chances confined mainly across southeast
Oklahoma and west central Arkansas for this weekend and into next
week. Generally followed guidance temperatures in both the near
term and extended.
