concerning taf sites ktul/krvs/kbvo/kmlc/kxna/kfyv/kfsm/krog.
Clearing skies across eastern Oklahoma are expected to continue to
move eastward across northwest Arkansas overnight tonight.
Indications are that IFR/MVFR conditions just east of northwest
Arkansas could still spread back west into northwest Arkansas
early Thursday morning before lifting back to VFR by mid/late
morning. For now will continue with tempo groups for northwest
Arkansas taf sites and also monitor southeast Oklahoma for any
patchy fog potential. During the day Thursday...southeasterly
winds and increasing high level clouds are expected ahead of the
next approaching wave. Precip chances look to become possible for
parts of northeast Oklahoma into far northwest Arkansas Thursday
evening and will introduce prob30 groups for these taf sites.
