EASTERN OKLAHOMA/NORTHWEST ARKANSAS WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TULSA OK
900 PM CDT MON JUL 6 2015

SKIES WERE MOSTLY CLOUDY OVER EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST
ARKANSAS THIS AFTERNOON...WITH SCATTERED SHOWERS AND ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS IMPACTING SOME LOCATIONS. THE CLOUD COVER MADE FOR
SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES...HOWEVER HIGH HUMIDITIES MADE FOR
ANOTHER DAY OF ELEVATED HEAT INDEX VALUES. DAYTIME HIGHS BY LATE
THIS AFTERNOON HAD PEAKED IN THE RANGE OF LOWER 80S TO LOWER 90S.
BREEZY SOUTH WINDS PREVAILED ACROSS THE AREA THROUGH THE AFTERNOON.

AT MID EVENING...A LINE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WERE MAKING
THEIR WAY INTO NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA. THIS ACTIVITY WAS OCCURRING IN
RESPONSE TO A COLD FRONT DROPPING SOUTH THROUGH THE CENTRAL PLAINS.
THESE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WERE PRODUCING INTENSE RAINFALL...
ALONG WITH GUSTY WINDS. TEMPERATURES THIS EVENING HAD FALLEN INTO
THE UPPER 60S AND MID 70S IN THE RAIN COOLED AIR...WHILE THE REST OF
THE AREA VARIED FROM THE UPPER 70S TO MID 80S.

THE SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY THIS EVENING IS THE START OF A
PERIOD OF UNSETTLED WEATHER FOR THE AREA. WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS ARE OUTLOOKED FOR MUCH OF THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE
AREA OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS...WITH THE SOUTHERN HALF HIGHLY
DEPENDENT ON JUST HOW FAR THE FRONT IS ABLE TO PROGRESS. THIS SYSTEM
WILL BRING WITH IT THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY RAINFALL...ESPECIALLY FOR
NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND THE NORTHWEST CORNER OF ARKANSAS.
TEMPERATURES WILL BE SLIGHTLY COOLER DURING THE PERIOD BEFORE WE
RETURN TO SUMMERTIME HEAT LATE IN THE WEEK.
