.NOW...

AT 12:48 PM...NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADARS DETECTED
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS...INCREASING IN COVERAGE AND
INTENSITY ACROSS EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN ARKANSAS. ALL OF
THIS ACTIVITY WAS OCCURRING IN RESPONSE TO A POTENT COLD FRONT
PUSHING THROUGH THE REGION. THE SHOWERS AND STORMS WERE MOVING OFF
TO THE NORTHEAST AT AROUND 40 MPH.

THROUGH 2:00 PM...WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED FOR EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN ARKANSAS. THE ACTIVITY
DURING THIS TIME WILL BE MOST CONCENTRATED ACROSS AREAS ALONG AND
NORTH OF A HUGO OKLAHOMA TO MOUNTAIN TOP ARKANSAS LINE. LARGE
HAIL...DAMAGING WINDS AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE THE
PRIMARY THREATS WITH THE STRONGER STORMS THAT OCCUR. HOURLY
RAINFALL RATES IN EXCESS OF ONE INCH PER HOUR WILL POSE A RISK FOR
LOCALIZED FLOODING ISSUES FOR SOME AREAS. FREQUENT LIGHTNING WILL
BE COMMON WITH THUNDERSTORMS.

A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH IS IN EFFECT FOR MUCH OF THE AREA
UNTIL 8 PM CDT THIS EVENING.
