current scattered convective action will gradually
become more isolated this evening and dissipate
overnight.

Dry Sunday and Sunday night with above normal temperature.

Broad trough will push associated cool front into
southeast Kansas Labor Day. Thunderstorms forming
on or near that front may spill into northeast OK
and northwest Arkansas the day Labor Day. Areas south of

Upper flow veers just enough Monday to bring decent
