.DISCUSSION...
TS Cindy near landfall as expected this morning close to LA/TX
border, with anticipated track over the next 24-48 keeping
significant impacts well east of the forecast area. Radar trends
over past few hours do show outermost precip bands moving toward
southeast OK and thus a few showers will remain in the forecast
through tonight across western AR into far eastern OK. Increased
clod cover will bring a modest cool down for these areas with one
more day of slightly above normal temps for areas generally
northwest of I-44.

Shortwave energy rotating around base of Canadian upper trough
will drive cold front toward the area Friday, which will offer at
least some chance of showers and thunderstorms through the day
with high temps several degrees cooler across northern areas.
Current forecast timing does suggest that parts of southeast OK
may warm well into the 90s before front arrives. Beyond this
scenario, details regarding precip chances become less clear, but
overall best chances may become more focused to our southwest
through early next week. Regardless, we will get a nice cool down
to postpone the inevitable march toward the oppressive heat of
summer for at a few more days at least. Upper level pattern
evolution remains uncertain for the mid to late part of next week
so forecast of trending temps back closer to normal with minimal
precip chances will be maintained.
