There is an elevated risk of severe storms this afternoon and
evening, mainly across Osage and Pawnee counties in northeast
Oklahoma. Large hail to 2 inches in diameter, damaging winds to
70 mph and an isolated tornado are possible. A limited risk of
severe storms exists southeast of the elevated risk area, and
includes areas to the north of the I-44 corridor in northeast
Oklahoma. Hail to the size of golf balls and damaging winds to 60
mph are possible in the limited risk area. A marginal severe risk
lies along and to the southeast of the I-44 corridor across
east central and northeast Oklahoma and far northwest Arkansas for
tonight.

Storms are expected to develop from southwest into north central
Oklahoma and southeast Kansas this afternoon along a boundary. This
activity will gradually migrate into northeast Oklahoma during the
late afternoon and evening hours. The storm potential will
gradually spread east during the overnight as the boundary sinks
southeast into the region, though severe potential is expected to
wane during this time. Locally heavy rainfall is possible if
storms can train over the same areas tonight.


Isolated to scattered storms remain possible mainly during the
daytime hours Sunday thru Tuesday across western Arkansas and
southeast Oklahoma. Daytime thunderstorms will be possible across
all of eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas Wednesday thru
Friday. While isolated severe storms can`t be ruled out, a more
widespread organized severe event is not expected due to weak flow
aloft.
