concerning taf sites ktul/krvs/kbvo/kmlc/kxna/kfyv/kfsm/krog.
MVFR to VFR conditions currently will give way to worsening flying
conditions on Saturday as MVFR to IFR conditions become more common
as a middle-level shortwave brings a large shield of showers and thunderstorms
to the area.

Discussion...
area of showers with embedded thunder across
southeast OK is showing some signs of decreasing in
coverage this evening. Still expect scattered
activity to linger through the night and expand
into a larger portion of NE OK and perhaps northwest
Arkansas under a persistent 25-30 knots southwesterly low-level jet.

Have tweaked probability of precipitation a bit for the rest of the night
otherwise few changes where made.
