.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Monday)
Issued at 206 PM CDT Sun Jun 18 2017

Scattered showers remained for locations along and south of
Interstate 44 this afternoon as a shortwave trough moves through.
A cold front has pushed down into Arkansas with northerly winds
occuring in the low levels. Drier air will slowly move in from the
north Tonight, ending precip chances and diminishing cloud cover.
Low temps will be more comfortable than previous nights, in the
50s. With winds becoming light, clear skies and wet ground, can`t
rule some light patchy fog but confidence in this is rather low
and really don`t expect much from it. Monday looks very nice and
sunny with highs in the lower 80s.
