.DISCUSSION...
Areas of light rain starting to spread north into the region this
morning in response to amplifying upper trough over the desert
southwest and corresponding upper low over northern Baja.
Widespread areas of rain will likely continue today as stronger
warm advection/isentropic upglide develops in association with
strengthening low level jet. Lingering areas of light
precipitation will remain tonight before ending Sunday morning.

Rain chances will return late Sunday night into Monday as upper
low moves northeast out of northern Mexico and into the ARKLATX
region Monday night. Initial cold front will push through the area
Monday night into Tuesday morning as low pressure system lifts
into the Ohio river valley.

A much stronger surge of arctic air will move into the region on
Wednesday as upper trough swings through the northern/central
plains. Still a few differences in the operations models concerning
timing of front, but rain is expected to transition to light snow
before precipitation shifts east Wednesday night.

Very cold conditions expected into Thursday morning with wind
chills in the single digits as brisk northwest winds persist.
Arctic high pressure will settle over the area Thursday night into
Friday morning with lows in teens over much of northeast Oklahoma
and northwest Arkansas.
