Discussion...
dry airmass as high pressure settles over arklamiss tonight.
Temperatures may fall to around freezing over much of SW Arkansas/southeast OK...and
extreme north central la...as winds become near calm and skies
remain clear. Southerly winds to return on Friday...and the moist
Gulf air over the much cooler ground may bring some patchy
fog...in addition to low clouds...Friday night. For now...will
simply increase clouds Friday night. Upper flow to remain mostly
zonal and thus middle levels to remain dry through weekend. Limited middle level
moisture as cold front moves into area Monday...low probability of precipitation for convection.
Models disagree on movement of front after Monday and speed of
upper trough approaching area for later in week./Vii/.
