Hello, Happy Halloween! Should we see what kind of weather is out there?
At 318PM, CT, Jonesboro was reporting a temperature of 58 degrees with overcast skies and a light south wind. An elongated frontal boundary is technically just a stationary front in Atkansas, where temperatures are mostly in the mid to upper 60s, except in Mississippi and Alabama, temperatures are cooler, as they are also n Oklahoma and Kansas. This is a function of a ridge being replaced by an upper level trough with almost no cold air behind it. All of the warm air is directly under the jet.
An upper level vorticity maximum will develop along the Red River Valley, and a more organized surface feature will emerge out of the northern Gulf Coast. Rain found east of the area will depart this evening, however the Gulf low will replace it by tomorrow morning. Jonesboro will see scattered showers throughout the day tomorrow, but the shortness of the wave indicates how quickly it will; shift out of town. There may be an isolated drip of rain before sunrise, but Monday looks like a pretty decent day to begin November.
