Storms Possible Over Wide Area

A cold front across southeast Kansas into northeast Oklahoma will
be the main focus for showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. An
upper level storm system will move across the Texas panhandle
today and provide strong lift which, combined with the front, will
be sufficient for scattered thunderstorms. Although the heaviest
rain is expected north of the Oklahoma/Kansas border, the pattern
will favor storms moving over the same areas, so there is a risk
for localized flash flooding, primarily across portions of
Osage/Pawnee counties.

Other storms may form across southeast Oklahoma into west central
Arkansas by early afternoon. However, these will likely remain
below severe limits. Any storm will pose a threat for dangerous
lightning, gusty wind and heavy downpours, so be prepared to move
indoors if you have outdoor activities and storms approach your
area.


Hot and humid weather will continue on Sunday right through the
middle of the week. A fall-like front is on the horizon by mid to
late week. Above normal temperatures may come to an end by
Thursday as the front pushes through much of the area. High
temperatures could be in the 70s to low 80s by Friday, with
overnight lows closer to average, in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
