.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 930 PM CST TUE NOV 24 2015/
Breezy southerly winds remained common across Eastern Oklahoma and
Northwest Arkansas this evening with gusts in the 15 to around 25
mph range. This flow continued to stream moisture back northward
into Western and Central Oklahoma...with cloud cover spreading
over Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
Overnight tonight...cloud cover should remain over the
region...while the low level moisture makes its way into the CWA.
These conditions combined with southerly winds remaining in the 5
to 15 mph range will help to keep temps much warmer during the
night with expected lows in the 40s to lower 50s.
Also late tonight...as moisture pulls back into the region
underneath an area of warm air advection across the CWA...some
patchy light drizzle could be possible over parts of the CWA. The
greater potential looks like it could be over far Southeast
Oklahoma and will insert some light drizzle over these locations
The evening update will be to adjust hourly wx grids based on the
mentioned above and to also tweak sky/temp/dewpoint/wind grids to
account for current trends and the mentioned above. The rest of
the forecast seems to be handling well at this time.
