FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The River Valley will see scattered showers along and south of Interstate 40 early Thursday morning.
Any northward expansion of precipitation will be offset by a deepening layer of dry air to the north
through the day. This will likely result in further decrease in precipitation across eastern Oklahoma during the day.
Lack of precipitation will allow temperatures to warm above those observed Wednesday in northeast Oklahoma despite considerable clouds. The rest of the area will finally see cooler temperatures.
This stretch of pleasant weather will continue into the weekend with a modest warming trend ensuing as winds return to a southerly direction.
Next week will bring a return to well-above normal temperatures for several days in all likelihood. Any precipitation chances should remain to our north for a while.
