.DISCUSSION...
Unseasonably cool conditions this afternoon behind a strong cold
front which has now pushed well south into the northern Gulf of
Mexico. Extensive cloud cover has kept high temperatures in
check, currently running 10 to 15 degrees below normal for this
time year. Low clouds will slowly clear from west to east overnight.
Could still see a few lingering low clouds across far northwest
Arkansas Tuesday morning.

Surface high pressure settles over the region during the day
Tuesday with light winds and mostly sunny skies. Relatively quiet
weather pattern for the next several days, especially for early
May. Another weak boundary/wind shift will move through on
Wednesday however temperatures are still expected to warm into the
upper 70s over much of the area with dry/down-slope flow. Warming
trend continues through the latter part of the work week as
strong upper ridge builds over the central/southern plains.

Upper ridge begins to break down over the weekend as large upper
low shifts northeast into the intermountain west. Shower/thunderstorm
chances return Saturday night into Sunday as initial short wave
ejects ahead of main upper low.
