Skies were partly cloudy this afternoon with scattered showers
developing over the higher terrain areas of far southeast Oklahoma
and northwest Arkansas. These terrain and heat induced showers
were generally short lived, and resulted in average rainfall of
around one quarter inch. Some heavier downpours occurred and
resulted in radar estimated amounts near one inch. It was a warmer
than normal day for eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas, with
daytime highs ranging from the upper 80s to upper 90s. The warmest
reading today was observed at Cloudy in far southeast Oklahoma
where the mercury peaked at 97 degrees.

At mid evening, clear to partly cloudy conditions were common
across area skies with a few showers ongoing across far southeast
Oklahoma and west central Arkansas. These showers were on the
downward trend however, as we continue to lose the affects of
daytime heating. Temperatures remain quite warm, having only
cooled down into mid 80s to lower 90s at most locations. There
were a few upper 70s and lower 80s noted, however these were the
result of recent showers across southeast Oklahoma.

A mostly clear sky is expected through the overnight period, along
with light winds. Temperatures will fall into the mid 60s to lower
70s by sunrise on Saturday. For the day tomorrow, partly cloudy
skies will be the rule. A southerly breeze of around 10 mph will
prevail through the afternoon. Daytime highs from the upper 80s to
mid 90s are expected by late afternoon tomorrow, with heat index
values to peak at around 102 degrees. A few afternoon showers and
thunderstorms will be possible again over the higher terrain of
southeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas on Saturday.
