.DISCUSSION...
Much more pleasant conditions have been seen today across eastern
Oklahoma and western Arkansas in the wake of yesterday`s cold
front, with this trend likely to continue through much of this
week. Surface high pressure sitting just to our northwest this
afternoon will move across the area overnight, allowing
temperatures to drop into the 40s tonight for most of the region.
Temperatures will be a couple of degrees warmer tomorrow and
Wednesday, as winds return to a light southerly direction once the
surface high moves through. A backdoor cold front remains on track
for late Wednesday into early Thursday, bringing another shot of
cooler and drier air for the latter part of the week.

Upper level ridging overhead for much of this week will slowly
break down toward the latter part of the weekend and into early
next week as a trough approaches from the west. This will bring
a warmer and more moist airmass back into Oklahoma and Arkansas,
leading to increasing shower and thunderstorm chances just beyond
this forecast.
