...UPDATE...

.DISCUSSION...
Tropical depression Cindy continues to make its way northward
this morning with scattered to overcast low and mid level cloud
decks across Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas. A few areas
of light drizzle had pushed into parts of Southeast Oklahoma and
Western Arkansas though had dissipated fairly quickly.

Through this afternoon...the remnants of Cindy are expected to
begin its northeastward turn and approach Southern Arkansas. This
track should continue to keep the majority of the precip east of
the CWA with small rain and isolated thunder chances mainly over
parts of Southeast Oklahoma into Northwest Arkansas. Severe
weather is not anticipated.

Broken/overcast cloud cover over Southeast Oklahoma and Northwest
Arkansas today should help to keep temps slightly cooler this
afternoon with highs in the mid/upper 80s forecast. More scattered
cloud cover for Northeast Oklahoma will allow for low 90s to be
possible. Low level moisture from Cindy over the region combined
with upper 80/low 90 afternoon temps will create heat indices in
the mid/upper 90s mainly over Northeast Oklahoma.

Overall the ongoing forecast seems to be in good shape at this
time. Have added minor tweaks to temp/dewpoint/sky/wind grids
based on current trends/observations for the morning update.
