Weak surface boundary continues to push south to southeast through eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas early this morning with surface high pressure filtering into the region in its wake.
In response, clear skies and light variable winds were common over the CWA. These conditions should continue through the day today with parts of northeast Oklahoma beginning to switch back to a light southerly wind by this evening.
Temperatures this afternoon should be close to yesterdays highs with locations over northwest
Arkansas possibly being slightly warmer than yesterday due to a full day of sun.
Southerly winds and a warming trend return to the CWA Wednesday and Thursday ahead of a shortwave and associated cold front forecast to push through the region Friday.
Winds of 5 to 15 MPH each day will aid in afternoon temperatures warming back into the mid 50s to lower 60s across the CWA.
A shortwave currently moving onto the Baja of California is expected to push across central/southern Texas Wednesday which could bring some scattered high clouds across mainly southeast Oklahoma Wednesday.
Otherwise, mostly clear conditions will be possible elsewhere over the CWA.
Rain chances become possible across northeast Oklahoma late Thursday night and increase over the CWA Friday as the shortwave and frontal boundary shift eastward across the central/southern
The greater rain potential looks to be during the morning hours ahead of the boundary and mid/upper level trof axis. These features look to move through the cwa Friday afternoon and exit
Friday evening with the rain chances shifting off to the east by Friday evening as well.
