.DISCUSSION...
Gusty southerly winds will continue overnight in advance of the
approaching storm system from the west. Scattered showers and
possibly weak thunderstorms will likely begin to develop across
parts of eastern Oklahoma towards sunrise, with this activity
slowly increasing through the morning hours Friday as it advances
east. The best chance for severe storms Friday will be across far
southeast and eastern Oklahoma into northwest Arkansas from about
midday through the afternoon hours, with damaging winds being the
main threat. A secondary severe hail threat will exist very late
Friday afternoon and evening across mainly northeast Oklahoma as
cold temperatures aloft spread into this area in association with
the center of the upper low. The current forecast has this
scenario well in hand, and no update is planned at this time.
