Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Tulsa OK
635 PM CDT SAT AUG 27 2016

VFR conditions are expected at all area TAF sites through the
valid period. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are close enough
to KBVO to include VCTS for a few hours this evening.


.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 240 PM CDT SAT AUG 27 2016/

Isolated/widely scattered convection...mainly in the higher
terrain of southeast OK and west central AR will continue through
the afternoon. Coverage of storms is expected to diminish this
evening once daytime heating is lost. Over the next few
days...little pattern change is expected. A boundary is expected
to stay north of the area and may serve as focus for slightly
higher coverage across northeast Oklahoma. uncapped
atmosphere with high moisture content will remain in place across
the entire area which will merit daily thunderstorms to be kept in
the forecast...with slightly higher coverage most days across the
higher terrain of southeast OK and west central AR. A combination
of the deeper moisture and slow storm movement will offer chances
for locally heavy rainfall with the strongest storms. Towards the
end of the week...mid level height rises appear sufficient enough
to limit storm coverage across the area. THe upper pattern
combined with expected cloud cover will keep afternoon high temps
mainly in the low 90s across much of the area for this upcoming
