Discussion...
warm/dry weather anticipated over the next couple of days ahead
of next upper disturbance....which is forecast to shift out of The
Rockies and into the Central Plains on Tuesday. Scattered
showers/thunderstorms will be possible across northeast Oklahoma
and northwest Arkansas in association with aforementioned system
Tuesday/Tuesday night.

Slow warming trend will continue through the middle of next week
as upper ridge over the Desert Southwest drifts slowly eastward.
Lingering precipitation chances expected Wednesday/Thursday with
the potential for a few weak upper level impulses to move across
in northwest flow aloft.

Models in general agreement with pushing a cold front through the
area late next week as stronger long wave trough becomes
established over the northeast Continental U.S.. showers/thunderstorms will
be possible along the front as boundary moves through on Friday
with cooler conditions anticipated into next weekend.
