Mostly clear to partly cloudy skies persisted into the mid
morning hours across eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. A few
scattered rain showers and thunderstorms developed during the
morning hours across northern portions of the area. Low
temperatures this morning dropped down into the middle 60s, to
the lower 70s. At 10am, winds were out of the south, between 5
and 10 miles per hour. Temperatures ranged from 79 degrees in
Fayetteville, to 83 degrees in Tulsa.
Southerly flow will persist across the Southern Plains the next
few days, allowing warm moist air to continue to spread into the
area. Upper level disturbances will also track northeast across
the region adding upper level supports for showers and
thunderstorms to develop, especially during the afternoon hours.
While widespread severe weather is not expected, a few of the
storms could become strong to severe, with strong winds and hail
being the main threats. Cloud to ground lightning and heavy
rainfall will also be a concern. A ridge of high pressure will set
up over the Southern Plains lowering the chance of precipitation
for the end of the week.
High temperatures today, will range from the middle 80s across
northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas, to the lower 90s
across southeast Oklahoma.
Low temperatures tonight, will range from the upper 60s across
northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas, to the lower 70s
