Eastern Oklahoma/Northwest Arkansas Weather Summary
National Weather Service Tulsa OK
1033 AM CDT Thu Apr 27 2017

Mostly clear to partly cloudy skies continued through the morning
hours across eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. Low
temperatures this morning were chilly, dropping down into the
middle 30s, to the middle 40s. At 10 am, winds were light and
variable. Temperatures ranged from 49 degrees in Fayetteville, to
58 degrees in Riverside.

Dry and quiet conditions will persist today, with partly cloudy
skies and warmer temperatures. Winds will increase out of the
south this afternoon, as a trough approaches from the west. A few
scattered showers and thunderstorms could develop tonight
associated with this system, mainly across northeast Oklahoma into
northwest Arkansas. Precipitation will be limited and severe
weather is not expected. A much stronger system will move into the
region late Friday and affect the area through Sunday. Initially,
strong to severe storms will be possible late Friday into
Saturday, but then the system will transition into a heavy rain
and flooding event. Between 2 and 8 inches of rainfall are
forecast by Sunday afternoon, with the higher amounts expected
across far eastern Oklahoma into northwest Arkansas. This amount
of rainfall will lead to flooding issues across the area, as well
as river flooding on many of the local rivers and streams. Use
caution if out and about this weekend and never drive your vehicle
into a flooded roadway. The water may be deeper than it appears or
the road could be washed out. Most weather related deaths occur
due to flooding.

Low temperatures tonight, will range from the lower 50s across
northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas, to near 60 degrees
across southeast Oklahoma and west central Arkansas.

High temperatures Friday, will range from the lower 70s across
northwest Arkansas, to the lower 80s across southeast Oklahoma.
