UPDATE...

UPDATED THE FORECAST TO REFLECT SLIGHTLY COOLER HIGHS TODAY...AND
TO ACCOUNT FOR TRENDS WITH WINDS. CLOUD COVER IS PRETTY THICK THIS
MORNING AND EVEN SOME LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS HAVE BEEN SEEN IN WESTERN
ARKANSAS. LOWERED EXPECTED AFTERNOON HIGHS BY A TAD TO ACCOUNT
FOR THIS. ALSO LOWERED WINDS A BIT. MUCH LIKE YESTERDAY...CLOUD
COVER HAS SLOWED THE MIXING DOWN OF HIGHER WINDS. SOME ELEVATED
LOCATIONS IN THE NORTH ARE CLOSE TO ADVISORY CRITERIA...AS ARE
SOME DELTA LOCATIONS IN THE NORTHEAST. WILL LEAVE THE LAKE WIND
ADVISORY AS IS FOR NOW BUT MAY HAVE TO READDRESS THIS IN THE
AFTERNOON PACKAGE IF WINDS DO NOT PICK UP.
