Discussion...

A weak northwest flow persists aloft...with weak surface ridging in place
over the Ozarks. A cold front was dropping south over Nebraska/Iowa and
down into northern Kansas...but this boundary will stall and lift
north before reaching our area. Thus...with the loss of daytime
heating...another tranquil Summer evening is in store over the
region. Removed all mention of precipitation during the evening. Updated
products sent.

Discussion...
scattered showers have persisted across central Oklahoma
this afternoon as a weak upper level disturbance affects
the region. Some of this activity may make into southeast
Oklahoma early this evening before dissipating. Will go with
some low probability of precipitation across a small portion of southeast Oklahoma
for a few hours this evening.

The heat will continue to build on Monday with highs in the middle to
upper 90s expected across much of the area. The highest temperatures
are expected across southeast Oklahoma and the River Valley of
west-central Arkansas. Will see a minor cool down Tuesday and Wednesday
across northern portions of the area with some increased cloud cover
and scattered showers and thunderstorms as a middle-level shortwave skirts
the area to the north.

The chances of showers and thunderstorms continue Thursday night into
Saturday as a frontal boundary slowly sags south across the area. This
boundary may take a little of the edge off the temperatures across the
northern portion of the forecast area.
