Discussion...
areas of dense fog have developed across portions of northeast
Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas this morning...mainly in areas
that saw rain yesterday morning. Have already issued a dense fog
advisory for the affected area until mid-morning. May need to
extend the advisory a little further south. However...a deck of
clouds at 4 to 6 thousand feet is keeping the fog in check for
the time being.

Otherwise...another couple of unseasonably warm days are on tap
for today and Wednesday as high pressure prevails at the surface
and aloft.

The next chance of showers and a few thunderstorms will come
Wednesday night into Thursday as a middle-level shortwave moves
across the plains.

High pressure will reign supreme at the surface and aloft
Friday and over the weekend with even warmer temperatures
expected. The chance of showers and thunderstorms will come
Monday night as cold front moves into the area.
