.AVIATION...
CONCERNING TAF SITES KTUL/KRVS/KBVO/KMLC/KXNA/KFYV/KFSM/KROG.
VFR conditions expected over the next 24 hours. Still a slim chance
of patchy fog in a few spots, but confidence still too low to
mention in TAFs.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 932 PM CDT Mon Apr 23 2018/

..UPDATE...

DISCUSSION...
Skies continued to clear across Western Arkansas this evening as
the low pressure system...now centered over Western
Tennessee...was slowly progressing eastward. Across Eastern
Oklahoma...mostly clear skies underneath weak high pressure
filtering into the region were observed.

Overnight tonight...skies are expected to continue to become
mostly clear over the CWA with light winds as weak high pressure
pushes across the region. These conditions could possibly create
some patchy areas of reduced visibilities...mainly where skies are
the last to clear in Western Arkansas. However...with latest
model soundings...confidence remains on the low side of potential
and will continue to hold off for now on mentioning in the
forecast update.

Temperatures with the clearing skies and light winds should be
able to get down into the 40s for most locations. Current forecast
has a handle on this and the evening update will be to add minor
tweaks to hourly temp/dewpoint/sky grids based on current trends
and observations.
