concerning taf sites ktul/krvs/kbvo/kmlc/kxna/kfyv/kfsm.
Band of MVFR conditions will precede the frontal boundary as it
continues southward today along with isolated convection. This
is most likely to briefly impact northwest Arkansas and southeast OK sites. Otherwise
drier Post frontal air will clear skies and return all sites to
VFR conditions once the front passes.

Discussion...
initial outflow boundary from overnight thunderstorms has surged
into southeast OK while sparking isolated convection along its path.
Recently the focus for renewed convection has turned to the true
cold frontal boundary generally along the Interstate 44 corridor.
This boundary will continue southward during the day and given the
axis of deep moisture along the frontal zone...a chance of precipitation
will accompany the front despite the lack of convergence. Temperatures
ahead of the front and south of the thicker cloud cover have
warmed quickly...while a bit of recovery is expected across the
northern locations once the clouds clear. Forecast will be updated
as precipitation and temperature trends change through the early afternoon.
