.DISCUSSION...
Unseasonably warm temps prevail this afternoon with a few record
high temps set. Breezy winds will be slow to diminish this evening
which will impact any ongoing fire suppression efforts. Focus then
turns to a fast moving cold front which is currently through far
northwest KS. The front will enter NE OK late tonight and quickly
pass through western AR by late Sat morning. Persistent cold
advection and a broad region of substantial pressure rises will
produce a period of strong winds with frequent gusts of 35 to 45
mph expected. These winds along with temps some 20 to 30 degrees
cooler than today will make for raw Saturday. A brief period of
light showers may rotate across far NE OK and far NW AR Saturday
morning otherwise the front will pass through dry.

Sunday will be pleasant with sfc high pressure overhead before a
warm up on Monday ahead of the next front. Limited moisture return
along with a lack of significant forcing will make for another dry
frontal passage on Tuesday. Pattern looks to amplify from mid to
late week with ridging west / troughing east which will maintain
a dry northwesterly flow through the Plains. The next cold front
is currently timed toward the end of next week but no impacts to
the upcoming holiday weekend are currently forecast.
