concerning taf sites ktul/krvs/kbvo/kmlc/kxna/kfyv/kfsm/krog.
Scattered middle and high clouds are expected again today across most
of eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas. A few patchy areas of
some fog/lower visible could be possible for a couple hours this
morning...though should quickly burn off with warming temperatures and
southerly winds. VFR conditions should persist through the taf
period...with maybe a brief period of MVFR visible within any patchy
fog this morning.

Discussion...
drier air-mass has settled over much of the area this morning
allowing temperatures to drop off into the 60s across far eastern
Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas. Could still see a few isolated
showers/thunderstorms develop this afternoon and again on Sunday
west of Highway 75 where deeper moisture will persist. Otherwise...
high temperatures are expected to remain near normal through the
weekend.

Stronger upper wave will move out of The Rockies and into the
Central Plains Tuesday into Wednesday with increasing chances for
showers/thunderstorms across northeast Oklahoma and northwest
Arkansas. A slow warming trend is expected to develop by late
next week as upper ridge over the Desert Southwest begins to
build back into the region. Afternoon heat indices may also begin
to push just over the century mark in a few areas around this
time.
