Convection has shifted east of the forecast area this morning with
the advancing cold front currently located across eastern OK. The
front will move slowly eastward today allowing for instability to
again develop across portions of western AR by afternoon. Limited
convergence along the boundary along with meager synoptic lift
is expected to keep any redevelopment along the front isolated.
The front is pushed further southeastward tonight allowing for
lower dewpoints and cooler overnight low temps. Increasing
cloudiness admist the post frontal airmass will keep high temps
cooler Sunday with increasing chances for light precip Sunday
night into Monday.
An amplifed and blocky pattern develops across the CONUS for much
of next week...with the central states beneath ridging aloft yielding
tranquil conditions and average temps slightly below normal. The
pattern will be slow to evolve with precip chances possibily
returning next weekend.
