.DISCUSSION...
A complex of strong to severe thunderstorms across Eastern
Oklahoma continues to gradually shift east this morning.
Convection to gradually dissipate by daybreak, however not before
possibly moving into McCurtain county.

Ongoing southwest flow aloft to maintain a fairly persistent
weather pattern today characterized by partly to mostly cloudy
skies and isolated showers and thunderstorms in the late afternoon
and evening.

Rain chances to increase on Thursday as an upper-level low moves
from southern California to the Four Corners region. Severe
weather threat will remain just slightly west of the region
mainly concentrated along a dry-line across Texas. However, some
strong storms will be possible mainly across East Texas, Southeast
Oklahoma, and portions of Southwest Arkansas on Thursday and
Friday.

Upper-trough to push east across the region on Saturday allowing
for a continued chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms.
However, upper-ridge to rebuild across the region late in the
weekend bringing warmer and drier conditions through the remainder
of the forecast period.

Temperatures through the weekend to range from highs in the 80s to
lows in the 70s. Could see slightly cooler temperatures on
Thursday and Friday due to higher rain chances. Otherwise, high
temperatures to approach 90 across North Louisiana and Southern
Arkansas by Monday and Tuesday. /05/
