Eastern Oklahoma/Northwest Arkansas Weather Summary
National Weather Service Tulsa OK
842 AM CDT Sat Apr 29 2017

A warm front lifted north through the area overnight, resulting in
widespread showers and thunderstorms across eastern Oklahoma and
northwest Arkansas. A few severe thunderstorms occurred, as well
as locally heavy rainfall, in association with this northward
moving boundary. A wide range of temperatures was observed across
the area overnight, with lows this morning ranging from the upper
40s to upper 50s north of the warm front, while lower 60s to mid
70s occurred south of the front.

At mid morning, overcast skies and widespread showers and
thunderstorms were ongoing across the area. The warm front
extended through east-central Oklahoma into far northwest
Arkansas. This boundary had become nearly stationary, in response
to an approaching upper level disturbance. Brisk northerly winds
and temperatures ranging from the upper 40s to around 60 degrees
were occurring north of the front, while gusty south winds and
temperatures in the 70s were observed south of the boundary.

Unsettled weather is outlooked throughout the day for eastern
Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas as this system will continue to
affect the region. A second round of severe weather will be
possible this afternoon and evening, especially across southeast
Oklahoma into northwest Arkansas with the passing upper level
feature. The widespread flooding potential will persist for all of
the area through the Sunday, until this system finally shifts east
of the region.
