.DISCUSSION...
Drier air across southern Arkansas and north Louisiana preventing
low to mid-level cloud deck from prevailing across these areas.
However, as southerly flow of moisture increases overnight ahead
of a weak upper-level shortwave, clouds are forecast to become
widespread across the entire Arklatex with drizzle and light rain
possible across southeast Oklahoma and northeast Texas after
midnight. Under mostly cloudy skies, low temperatures forecast to
fall into the lower to mid 40s.

Showers to increase in coverage across the region on Sunday ahead
of an approaching cold front across the Red River valley. Front
should gradually shift south and east allowing for a chance for
showers through Monday evening. High temperatures on Sunday to
climb into the lower 60s with lows Sunday night mainly in the 50s.

High pressure to build behind the front on Tuesday. However, with
the center of the surface high forecast to be positioned across
the upper midwest, temperatures will remain relatively mild across
the Arklatex through the middle of the work week. Low temperatures
on Tuesday night forecast to range from the lower 40s across the
Interstate 30 corridor to the mid 50s south of Interstate 20. High
temperatures on Wednesday forecast to average in the 50s and 60s.

Could see a slight chance of showers on Wednesday into Wednesday
evening ahead a replacement airmass that will bring a
reinforcement of cool air to the region on Thursday into Friday.
High temperatures on Thursday to average in the 40s and 50s with
lows in the 30s and 40s. /05/
