837 PM CDT Sun Mar 26 2017
Most of the Natural State saw dry conditions...and a mostly clear
sky this Sunday so far as high pressure passed over the region.
Temperatures warmed into the 70s to low 80s this afternoon...with
winds becoming southerly. Late this evening...clouds were increasing
across most of the state...with temperatures dropping down into the
upper 50s to mid 60s across the north...and in the mid 60s to low
70s across the south. A cluster of thunderstorms had developed over
central into northeast Oklahoma this evening...and some of this
activity was pushing northeast into far northwest sections of the
state late this evening.
Expect the thunderstorm activity to the west to continue to move
east and northeast through the rest of the evening hours...with
portions of western and northwest Arkansas seeing the best chances
for storms through about midnight. Some severe thunderstorms could
be seen...with the best potential for seeing severe weather across
far western Arkansas late this evening.
After midnight...the complex of thunderstorms will continue to move
east through the state...with all but the southeast third of the
state seeing potential for showers and thunderstorms through Monday
morning. The threat for severe weather will gradually decrease as
the activity moves east through Monday morning.
A cold front will move south through the state late on Monday...with
some additional showers and thunderstorms possible. Drier air will
move into the state by late Monday night and for Tuesday.
However...more chances for showers and thunderstorms return for the
middle to late week time frame. Temperatures should remain above
normal for afternoon highs each day.
