Partly to mostly cloudy skies developed during the afternoon, as
showers and thunderstorms formed over eastern Oklahoma and

this afternoon reached into the upper 80s to the middle 90s. At
8pm, winds were out of the east, around 5 miles per hour.

more active. Chances for showers and thunderstorms will persist
through the work week, especially during the afternoon and early
evening hour. A couple thunderstorm complexes are forecasted to
develop over the Central Plains and track southeast into the
Southern Plains. This will bring better chances for precipitation
to the area Thursday and Friday. Temperatures will remain warm,

northwest Arkansas, to the middle 70s across eastern and
