.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 1041 AM CST Sun Jan 22 2017/

DISCUSSION...
Upper low currently sliding e-se across southern Arkansas this morning.
With the forecast area now on the backside of the upper low...rain
that has remained mostly to the north of Interstate 40 will
continue to diminish in area coverage from wnw-ese into the
afternoon. Have tailored pops accordingly through the rest of the
first period to show less rain chances in time. Western sections
of the forecast area likely to see some sun by mid to late
afternoon...and have tweaked sky grids to reflect that.
Temperatures overall look good for the afternoon...with just minor
adjustments needed based on latest trends.

Updated ZFP/AFM/PFM out shortly.
