DISCUSSION...
Unseasonably warm afternoon on tap for all the area,
with the warmest readings expected across northeast Oklahoma,
to north of I-40 where less cloud cover will be. Overall forecast
is on track with the only adjustments coming in the form of
temperatures raising temps slightly across southeast Oklahoma and
increasing winds a some across northeast Oklahoma. Current fire
danger statement is representative, will leave that and remaining
first period elements as they are.

Strong front to move through the area tonight with chances for
rain along the boundary. Most of Friday will be dry, albeit
considerably colder. A second upper wave will move through Friday
night and into Saturday, which will bring highest rain chances
south of Interstate 40.

Updated ZFP/PFM/AFM out shortly.
