NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TULSA OK
906 AM CDT THU OCT 2 2014

SKIES WERE MOSTLY CLOUDY OVERNIGHT WITH SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS OCCURRING ACROSS MUCH OF NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA. THIS
CONVECTION WAS IN RESPONSE TO A POTENT COLD FRONT MOVING THROUGH THE
REGION. WARM AND MOIST AIR SURGED NORTHWARD IN ADVANCE OF THIS
SYSTEM...AIDED BY BRISK SOUTH TO SOUTHEAST WINDS WHICH PREVAILED
OVERNIGHT. THE CLOUD COVER AND BREEZY SOUTH WINDS HELPED TO KEEP
TEMPERATURES ELEVATED THROUGH THE NIGHT. MORNING LOWS AT SUNRISE
RANGED FROM THE MID 60S TO MID 70S.

AT MID MORNING...CLOUDY SKIES PERSISTED OVER THE AREA. SCATTERED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WERE ONGOING ACROSS MUCH OF EASTERN
OKLAHOMA AND THE FAR NORTHWEST CORNER OF ARKANSAS. ADDITIONAL
DEVELOPMENT WAS UNDERWAY FURTHER TO THE WEST...CLOSER TO THE
APPROACHING COLD FRONT. MID MORNING TEMPERATURES RANGED FROM THE
LOWER 70S TO AROUND 80 DEGREES. IN CONTRAST...TEMPERATURES BEHIND
THE FRONT IN THE OKLAHOMA PANHANDLE WERE IN THE 40S.

THE OUTLOOK FOR THIS AFTERNOON CALLS FOR ADDITIONAL SHOWER AND
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES FOR EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN ARKANSAS AS
THE FRONT ROLLS THROUGH THE AREA. SOME THUNDERSTORMS THIS MORNING...
AND ESPECIALLY THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING COULD BE SEVERE.
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO WARM INTO THE LOWER 80S TO NEAR 90
DEGREES PRIOR TO THE ARRIVAL OF THE COLDER AIR BEHIND THE FRONT. THE
FRONT SWEEPS THROUGH THE AREA THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING...WITH
RAPIDLY CLEARING CONDITIONS TO OCCUR IN ITS WAKE. PARTLY CLOUDY
SKIES ARE EXPECTED THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT TONIGHT...WITH MUCH COOLER
TEMPERATURES PROJECTED FOR FRIDAY. MORNING LOWS TOMORROW WILL RANGE
