.UPDATE...

Convection remaining well north of our region this evening and
with weak ridging in place, done see much chance on any of this
convection making it town into our area overnight. Outflow
boundary from SE OK convection has made it down into northwest
McCurtain County but should lose its momentum as we go through the
night. Did not totally remove pops for the remainder of the night
but did lower them to slight chance variety and trimmed them back
to only encompass our extreme northern zones. 

A quick check of 02z temps shows that we are running very near
the temperatures we were seeing this time last night. Overnight
forecast min temps are in the ballpark such that no changes were
necessary to hourly temp or dewpoint grids. 

Update out shortly...13.
