Thunderstorm coverage expected to be a little further west this
afternoon...possibly impacting the southeast OK and northwest Arkansas sites. Will
carry vcts from mid afternoon through early eve. Thundertorm
chances will increase across the NE OK and northwest Arkansas site late in the
period as a cold front approaches from the north. Scattered
convection along the front would impact the NE OK and northwest Arkansas sites
after 12z...possibly kbvo between 06z-12z. Otherwise...VFR taf
elements should prevail...except for brief MVFR vsbys where
thundertorms occur tonight/tomorrow.

Discussion...
current forecast in good shape heading into the afternoon. A little
more sky cover to contend with than at this time yesterday...but
dont think it will hamper temperatures. Thunderstorm coverage this
afternoon should be a little further west than yesterday as the
upper ridge loses its hold just a little bit. Current pops for the
afternoon look good as well...along with remaining first period
elements.

No update planned at this time. Will refresh the npw before
1600z.
