SCATTERED SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUED ACROSS MUCH 
OF REGION THIS AFTERNOON AHEAD OF A SLOWLY ADVANCING WARM FRONT THAT 
WAS STALLED ACROSS NORTHERN LOUISIANA. RAINFALL AMOUNTS HAVE 
GENERALLY BEEN LESS THAN AN INCH...ALTHOUGH A FEW ISOLATED 2 TO 3 
INCH AMOUNTS WERE NOTED ACROSS SOUTHERN ARKNASAS. 

THE WIDESPREAD RAINFALL AND OVERCAST SKIES HAVE KEPT TEMPERATURES 
SUPPRESSED TODAY...WITH READINGS ONLY CREEPING INTO THE UPPER 50S TO 
LOWER 60S. 

FOR THIS EVENING AND OVERNIGHT...THE AFOREMENTIONED WARM FRONT WILL 
LIFT NORTH ACROSS THE STATE. THERE WILL BE THE POTENTIAL FOR STRONG 
TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS AS THE FRONT MOVES NORTH...WITH THE BEST
