Eastern Oklahoma/Northwest Arkansas Weather Summary
National Weather Service Tulsa OK
1006 AM CST Fri Jan 19 2018

Mostly clear skies persisted through the mid morning hours across
eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. Low temperatures this
morning dropped down into the middle teens, to the lower 30s. At
10am, winds were out of the south, between 5 and 15 miles per
hour, gusting to 25 miles per hour. Temperatures ranged from 34
degrees in Fort Smith, to 42 degrees in McAlester.

Surface high pressure will continue to shift off to the east, as
an upper level ridge builds over the Southern Plains. These two
features will promote warmer and dry weather across the region for
the next couple of days. High temperatures over the weekend will
reach into the 60s and even lower 70s. The next chance for
precipitation will develop Sunday afternoon into early Monday
morning as a low pressure system deepens over the Southern
Rockies and tracks eastward across the area. Some of the storms
with this system could become strong.

High temperatures today, will range from the lower 50s across
portions of northwest Arkansas and southeast Oklahoma, to the
upper 50s across east central Oklahoma.

Low temperatures tonight, will range from the upper 30s, to the
middle 40s area wide.
