Ongoing showers and thunderstorms across far eastern Oklahoma into northwest Arkansas will continue to produce areas of locally heavy rainfall, gusty winds and small hail through daybreak. Additional areas of thunderstorms across northwest Oklahoma will move east into northeast Oklahoma early this morning. An isolated brief tornado along the leading edge of the storms can`t be ruled out, although the main threat early this morning will be from damaging winds. Thunderstorms will gradually strengthen later this morning and into the afternoon as they track across southeast Oklahoma into northwest Arkansas. Damaging winds and large hail be the main concern, along with isolated tornadoes this afternoon mainly across parts of southeast Oklahoma. Areas of heavy rainfall can be expected through the day, with much of the region expected to receive an additional 2 to 4 inches of rain. This will lead to areas of flooding and possible flash flooding. A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for all of eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas through tonight.
