DISCUSSION...

A MUCH QUIETER NIGHT THAN THE LAST COUPLE HAVE BEEN...AND THIS IS
EXPECTED TO LARGELY CONTINUE. A FEW SMALL ECHOES HAVE STRUGGLED SO
FAR EARLY THIS MORNING ACROSS FAR SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA...AND SIMILAR
CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE THROUGH THE
DAY...WITH ANY ADDITIONAL SHOWERS AND STORMS UNLIKELY TO AMOUNT
TO MUCH.

COOLER AND DRIER AIR WILL CONTINUE TO FILTER INTO EASTERN OKLAHOMA
AND WESTERN ARKANSAS IN THE WAKE OF YESTERDAYS COLD FRONT. SKIES
WILL CLEAR FROM NORTH TO SOUTH AS THE DRIER AIR MOVES IN...WHICH
WILL RESULT IN OVERNIGHT LOWS TONIGHT SEVERAL DEGREES COOLER THAN
THE PAST COUPLE OF NIGHTS. BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED
TO PERSIST THROUGH THIS WEEK.

SMALL THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL RETURN TO MAINLY NORTHERN PARTS OF
THE FORECAST AREA THURSDAY NIGHT AND INTO FRIDAY AS A WEAKNESS
DEVELOPS ON THE NORTHEAST SIDE OF THE UPPER RIDGE BUILDING IN THE
SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES. MOST SPOTS LOOK TO REMAIN DRY
HOWEVER.

IT APPEARS MORE LIKELY THIS MORNING THAT THE RIDGE WILL BUILD INTO
THE CENTRAL UNITED STATES TOWARD NEXT WEEKEND...BRINGING AN UPTICK
IN TEMPERATURES. NEAR TO JUST ABOVE NORMAL VALUES SHOULD ARRIVE BY
SUNDAY AND PERHAPS EVEN SATURDAY.
