.DISCUSSION...
Temperatures have approached near record highs across many
locations this afternoon. Light showers beginning to show up on
radar across the Arklatex along and ahead of a frontal boundary
stretching from central Arkansas to Northeast Texas. Areas south
of the front under partly to mostly cloudy skies with south winds
around 10 mph while much of McCurtain county north of the frontal
boundary experiencing light north winds and temperatures in the
mid 60s.

Frontal boundary to linger across Arkansas and North Texas through
the weekend maintaining a chance of showers each day. Zonal flow
aloft to become southerly as an upper-level low digs south across
the Baja Peninsula. As upper-low approaches the region,
instability to increase allowing for showers and thunderstorms
late in the weekend through the early part of next week.

Upper-flow to become parallel to surface front in a NE/SW axis by
Tuesday allowing for widespread rainfall with some training storms
possible. At this time model solutions are generating rainfall
totals through Tuesday around two to three inches mainly across
McCurtain county, with lesser amounts southward. Drier conditions
expected on Wednesday as upper-trough and surface boundary exit
the region to the east.

Otherwise, high temperatures to average in the 60s and 70s and
lows in the 40s and 50s lows through the weekend into next week.
