Discussion...
main forecast issue this morning is possible convection spreading
south into northern portions of the forecast area from the
weakening complex in southeast Kansas. Increased probability of precipitation across the
northeast to slight chance. Should the complex hold
together...this will affect temperatures across this area...so may
need to adjust the coverage of the heat advisory. Additional
scattered showers and storms are also expected over far east OK and
west Arkansas. Some storms could become severe...with main threat being
strong winds.
