AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE Tulsa OK
845 PM CDT FRI APR 29 2016
Line of thunderstorms currently extends from near Coffeyville
to McAlester and then south to near Durant. This activity is
expected to clear much of eastern Oklahoma by 06z and the remainder
of the forecast area by 10z. Have been seeing wind gusts of 40
to 50 behind the storms across northeast Oklahoma as a wake low has
developed behind the squall line. Still a threat for severe storms
across extreme southeast Oklahoma over the next couple of hours as
conditions remain favorable in the vicinity of the warm front near
the red river. These storms would be capable of producing large hail,
damaging winds and possibly a tornado. Heavy rain is also possible
in a short period of time with the stronger storms. This could lead
to flash flooding. Have made some adjustments to the pops for tonight
to account for the latest timing of the line of thunderstorms.
OK...Flash Flood Watch until 7 AM CDT Saturday for OKZ049-053-070>076.
AR...Flash Flood Watch until 7 AM CDT Saturday for ARZ029.
