..UPDATE...

DISCUSSION...
The cold front has quickly traversed the forecast area this
morning and is generally located along a line from eastern
Missouri to northcentral Arkansas and extending down into Texas.
Strong northwesterly winds followed the front with gusts of 30 to
40 mph common for eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. After a
rather mild overnight period with temperatures generally in the
upper 60s and low 70s, a 20-25 degree drop quickly followed the
passage of the front.

A few light rain showers have developed post-frontal but any
accumulation will be light and will not do much to tamp down fire
threats across the region. The combination of gusty winds and a
drier airmass working in through the day will result in continued
fire weather concerns later today. Clouds are expected to clear from
northwest to southeast later this afternoon and evening.
