.DISCUSSION...
Most of eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas will try to squeeze another
dry day in Today. However, a showers and a few thunderstorms could move
into portions of eastern Oklahoma this afternoon, mainly west of highway 75.

An upper level shortwave currently over western Colorado will sweep across
the region tonight along with an associated surface cold front. These
features will produce the lift for the showers and isolated thunderstorms
this afternoon into Tonight. The chances of showers and isolated thunderstorms
will persist into Tuesday as a more pronounced upper level trof moves through the
plains. Severe weather is not anticipated with this activity as instability will
be on the low end. Rainfall amounts of around one-quarter inch will be common
during this time, which should not cause any additional flooding concerns.

Dry weather is expected mid to late week with the area in between storm systems.
The chances of showers and thunderstorms ramp up again Friday night and persist
for a good chunk of the Memorial Day holiday weekend as a series of upper level
shortwaves slowly push a surface boundary across the region. The threat for severe
weather will also increase during this time as will the potential for locally
heavy rain.
