.DISCUSSION...
A FEW ISOLATED SHOWERS HAVE DEVELOPED ACROSS FAR EASTERN OKLAHOMA
AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS THIS AFTERNOON WITH STRONG SURFACE HEATING.
OVERALL PRECIPITATION COVERAGE WILL REMAIN VERY LIMITED AND ANY
SHOWER/THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY WILL DISSIPATE BY LATE AFTERNOON/
EARLY EVENING.

UPPER RIDGE WILL BEGIN TO SLOWLY BREAK DOWN OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS
WITH TEMPERATURES TRENDING BACK TOWARDS NORMAL. UPPER TROUGH WILL
MOVE OUT OF THE CENTRAL ROCKIES THURSDAY...SHIFTING EAST INTO THE
CENTRAL/SOUTHERN PLAINS INTO FRIDAY. SHOWER/THUNDERSTORM CHANCES
WILL BEGIN TO INCREASE FRIDAY THROUGH THE EARLY PART OF THE
WEEKEND AS UPPER TROUGH AXIS MOVES INTO THE REGION. INCREASED
CLOUD COVER/PRECIPITATION SHOULD ALSO ALLOW A BRIEF BREAK FROM
THE HEAT DURING THIS TIME WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES ONLY IN THE
MID/UPPER 80S ON SATURDAY. A SLOW WARMING TREND WILL ONCE AGAIN
DEVELOP INTO THE EARLY PART OF NEXT WEEK AS UPPER RIDGE BEGINS TO
BUILD BACK INTO THE REGION.
