Discussion...
fast moving minor wave passing this morning may produce scattered
light rain primarily over far northwest Arkansas...otherwise warmer temperatures will
be realized as surface high shifts eastward and southerly flow
returns. The next cold front passes through the area Sunday /
Sunday evening with an axis of higher instability developing along
the boundary across southeast OK into western Arkansas. Inhibition is forecast
to remain rather strong with any storm development likely waiting
until Sunday evening and most likely across far southeast OK and points
further south.

The aforementioned boundary becomes stationary before working
slowly back north Monday night into Tuesday while providing focus
for a passing upper wave. The result will be increasing precipitation
chances late Monday through Wednesday.

The upper pattern is much less amplified by late week with a
stronger storm system currently timed through the plains by
Friday. Temperatures for much of the upcoming week will be above
normal.
