Discussion...
a cold front is slicing through eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas
this afternoon and is currently near a kfyv-kmlc line. Even with the
front moving through the area, temperatures managed to rise a few
degrees above normal this afternoon. The front is expected to exit the
area as we move into the evening hours.

The aforementioned cold front will help to knock temperatures to below
normal levels for the next several days as surface high pressure builds
into the region from the north. High pressure at the surface and aloft
will prevail into early next week.

The next chance of showers and thunderstorms will come next Tuesday into
Wednesday and possibly lingering into Thursday as a the next storm system
moves out of The Rockies and across the plains.
