An active pattern will remain across the area with additional
rounds of shower and thunderstorm activity possible. This will
result in more potential flooding and flash flooding into the
early part of the weekend, with the highest amounts expected across
southeast Oklahoma into western Arkansas. Conditions may also favor
strong thunderstorms on Saturday afternoon and evening.
Windy and drier conditions behind the front will raise fire
weather concerns on Saturday afternoon.
