...

Short term...
clouds are streaming across the area form the northwest. Between
that and the expected increase in wind during the night...feel the
overnight lows are very reasonable. Bvo and fyv dropped very fast
after sunset...but bvo has recovered a little and clouds are now
reaching fyv. The Standard trend in nighttime temperatures will not hold
tonight. Temperatures could potentially fall and rise from one hour to
the next all night.

Latest indications are the surface pressure gradient will tighten
considerably by around midnight. By about 5 am...the cold
front...now in northwest Kansas...should push into Osage County and
extend into southwest OK. The front will continue quickly to the
southeast...and should be well into Arkansas and northeast Texas
by late morning.
