WEATHER. HOWEVER...THE FOCUS FOR MORE WIDESPREAD SEVERE WEATHER
WILL REMAIN WEST AND NORTH OF THE AREA THROUGH THURSDAY. A
STRONGER STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE THROUGH THE AREA FRIDAY...RAISING
THE POTENTIAL FOR MORE WIDESPREAD SEVERE WEATHER ACROSS EASTERN
OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS. IN ADDITION...AT LEAST LOCALIZED
FLASH FLOODING WILL BE POSSIBLE DUE TO THE HIGH AMOUNTS OF
MOISTURE AVAILABLE.
