EASTERN OKLAHOMA/NORTHWEST ARKANSAS WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TULSA OK
1022 AM CDT FRI APR 29 2016

Mostly cloudy skies early this morning persisted into the morning
hours across eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. Scattered rain
showers with isolated thunderstorms also continued to develop and
spread northeast across the area. Low temperatures this morning
dropped down into the lower 50s, to the lower 60s. At 10am, winds
were out of the east, between 5 and 15 miles per hour, gusting to
25 miles per hour. Temperatures ranged from 54 degrees in
Fayetteville, to 62 degrees in McAlester.

With a surface low pressure system over northwest Texas, and the
associated warm front extended eastward along the Red River,
scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to develop ahead
of this system and lift northeast across the region. Some of the
storms could become strong to severe later this afternoon as the
system moves over the area. The main threats will be large hail
and strong winds, especially along and south of highway 40. There
is also an isolated tornado threat,a mainly near the warm front
across far south central and southeast Oklahoma. As the system
tracks northeast across the region today, the associated cold
front will push through the area early Saturday morning.
Additional showers and thunderstorms will develop along and ahead
of this frontal boundary affecting much of eastern Oklahoma and
western Arkansas. The precipitation should come to an end mid day
Saturday as cooler and more stable air spreads into the region
from the north.

High temperatures today, will range from the middle 60s across
northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas, to the mid 70s across
southeast Oklahoma.

Low temperatures tonight, will range from the lower 50s across
north central Oklahoma, to the middle 60s across southeast
Oklahoma and west central Arkansas.
