...UPDATE...

.DISCUSSION...
This evening...surface low pressure was located over Eastern
Colorado to Central Nebraska with a frontal boundary stretched
southwest to northeast from the low and a dryline extending
southward into the Texas Panhandle. Ahead of these features...
Warm...humid and breezy southerly winds remained common across
Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas this evening.

Overnight tonight...breezy southerly winds and dewpoints in the
mid 60s to lower 70s are forecast across the CWA while the dryline
and frontal boundary remain out west and northwest. Also...mostly
clear to partly cloudy high level cloud decks should continue
during the night as the remaining convection near the Red River
looks to remain over Northern Texas and high ceilings from Kansas
approach the region. The result of these conditions will be low
temperatures several degrees warmer compared to this mornings lows
with upper 60s to upper 70s forecast.

Evening update was to add minor tweaks to hourly
temp/dewpoint/sky/wind grids for tonight based on current trends
and observations. The rest of the forecast seems to be handling
well at this time.
