Skies were partly cloudy through the afternoon with hot and humid
conditions prevailing. Isolated showers and thunderstorms impacted
portions of the area this afternoon, some of which produced
locally heavy downpours, strong winds, and isolated large hail.
High temperatures today ranged from the lower to upper 90s,
however several locations impacted by the rainfall had cooled down
into the lower 70s this afternoon.
At mid evening, skies remained partly cloudy for most locations. A
few showers and thunderstorms were ongoing across southeast
Oklahoma and west-central Arkansas. Another complex of
thunderstorms was occurring across southern Kansas and moving
southeast toward the region. Mid evening temperatures ranged from
the mid 70s to mid 80s, with light winds common across the area.
Partly cloudy conditions are expected through the evening, with
clouds expected to increase overnight. Shower and thunderstorm
chances will be on the increase through the evening and overnight
as the convection to our north dives south. Additional activity is
expected to develop north and move south overnight as well, and
continue into and through part of the day Friday. Morning lows
tomorrow will vary from the upper 60s to around the mid 70 degree
mark. Mostly cloudy skies early tomorrow will give way to partly
cloudy conditions by afternoon. Shower and thunderstorm chances
will linger through the day Friday, with slightly higher
probabilities for the northern half of the area. High temperatures
on Friday will vary from the mid 80s to lower 90s.
