Ares of rain will continue to overspread eastern Oklahoma
and northwest Arkansas this morning and continue through the
afternoon. Some brief heavier rainfall will be possible across
southeast Oklahoma today.
Coverage of showers and thunderstorms will increase Friday
as an upper level system and cold front move through the
area. Severe potential will be in place later in the day and
Friday night as a few storms near the front will be capable
of producing large hail. Widespread one to two inch rainfall
amounts are likely across much of the area Friday and Friday
night, with locally higher amounts possible.
Showers and storms will shift east on Saturday as the front clears
the area. Gusty southwest winds developing during the day will
bring much drier air into the area, and fire weather concerns will
increase for at least parts of eastern Oklahoma. Gusty winds will
continue into Sunday, however settled weather conditions will
persist into the next work week.
