Partly to mostly cloudy skies persisted into the mid morning
hours across eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. Scattered
rain showers also developed during the early morning hours across
far eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. Low temperatures this
morning dropped down into the middle 60s, to the lower 70s. At
10am, winds were light and variable. Temperatures ranged from 77
degrees in Fayetteville, to 82 degrees in Tulsa.
A stalled frontal boundary will remain stretched across northeast
Oklahoma, serving as a trigger for scattered showers and storms to
develop. Upper level disturbances will also track northeast across
the region adding upper level supports for additional
precipitation development. This active weather pattern will
persist through the weekend. Some of the storms could become
strong to severe, with strong winds and hail being the main
threats. Cloud to ground lightning and heavy rainfall will also
be a concern.
High temperatures today, will range from the lower 80s across
northwest Arkansas, to the lower 90s across northeast Oklahoma.
Low temperatures tonight, will range from the upper 60s across
northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas, to the lower 70s
