Eastern Oklahoma/Northwest Arkansas Weather Summary
National Weather Service Tulsa OK
900 PM CDT FRI JUL 29 2016

Skies were mostly cloudy this afternoon, with just a few scattered
showers impacting parts of the area before exiting the region by
mid afternoon. Cooler temperatures were observed across most of the
area today, with high temperatures ranging from the mid 80s to mid
90s. A late surge in temperatures occurred as skies began to
gradually clear during the mid to late afternoon hours. Scattered
showers and thunderstorms reformed during the late afternoon over
far southeast Oklahoma, which resulted in locally heavy rainfall
and brief gusty winds.

At mid evening, most of eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas
were experiencing clear to partly cloudy skies. Scattered showers
and thunderstorms were ongoing over far southeast Oklahoma, with
debris cloudiness from this activity resulting in mostly cloudy
skies over that area and portions of northwest Arkansas. Mid
evening temperatures varied from the lower 70s to mid 80s, with
light winds common prevailing.

The ongoing shower and thunderstorm activity will gradually shift
south and east of the area, with partly cloudy skies expected
through the late evening. Variably cloudy conditions will
eventually prevail overnight. Shower and thunderstorm chances will
be on the increase after midnight, as the potential exists for
another convective complex to develop to our northwest and move
into the area overnight and into the morning hours on Saturday.
Low temperatures tomorrow will range from the upper 60s to lower
70s. Partly to mostly cloudy skies early, with a chance of showers
and thunderstorms, will give way to partly cloudy skies by
afternoon on Saturday. A slight chance for showers and
thunderstorms will continue through the afternoon and into the
evening hours on Saturday. High temperatures tomorrow will vary
from the upper 80s to mid 90s.
