Synopsis.......<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Helvetica","sans-serif";color:#333333">

<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Helvetica","sans-serif";color:#333333">  

<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Helvetica","sans-serif";color:#333333">As expected only a few showers today as our atmosphere remains capped (warm air aloft that suppresses storm development)

<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Helvetica","sans-serif";color:#333333">and best dynamics remain well to our north. Severe weather on going across Arkansas and northern Louisiana. As discussed

<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Helvetica","sans-serif";color:#333333">Saturday may see a little better chance Monday as cap weakens some and surface trough pushes east a little closer to the area.

<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Helvetica","sans-serif";color:#333333">Best chances of severe weather remain to our north but any storms that manage to develop can produce strong winds. Moisture

<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Helvetica","sans-serif";color:#333333">levels drop off Monday night ahead of Tuesday's cold front so looks like a dry frontal passage Tuesday.
