Eastern Oklahoma/Northwest Arkansas Weather Summary
National Weather Service Tulsa OK
922 AM CST Mon Feb 27 2017
Mostly clear skies were common across Northeast Oklahoma and much
of Northwest Arkansas overnight while mostly cloudy conditions
were observed across Southeast Oklahoma. These clouds were
associated with a warm frontal boundary lifting northward into the
region. A few showers and isolated thunderstorms along and near
the front had also lifted into far southeast Oklahoma with
rainfall mainly around a tenth of an inch and less. Low
temperatures for Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas ranged
from the upper 40s near 50 degrees in Southeast Oklahoma to the
upper 20s and 30s for Northeast Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
By mid morning...a broken line of showers and thunderstorms were
moving northeast around 25 mph across East Central Oklahoma into
Northwest Arkansas. The warm front was located across Southeast
Oklahoma with mostly cloudy skies over Eastern Oklahoma and
partly cloudy skies for parts of Northwest Arkansas. Temperatures
had warmed into the lower 40s to mid 50s from north to south.
Winds were out of the east to southeast at 5 to 15 mph.
For the rest of today...partly to mostly cloudy skies will
continue across the region as the warm front continues to lift
northward. Ongoing showers and thunderstorms will also continue to
push northeast through the region...with a slight chance of
additional showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening.
There looks to be a marginal potential of strong to marginally
severe storms through this evening. High temperatures today are
forecast to warm into the mid to upper 60s for most locations with
southeast winds of 10 to 15 mph. Overnight tonight...warm
conditions should persist behind the warm front with lows in the
50s to near 60 degrees with mostly cloudy skies.
