GUSTING TO 30 MPH DEVELOP AND RELATIVE HUMIDITIES DROP INTO THE 25

AS THE FRONT MOVES INTO SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND WEST CENTRAL
ARKANSAS THIS EVENING...ISOLATED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL
BE POSSIBLE TO THE SOUTH OF A LINE FROM MCALESTER TO POTEAU.

THE REGION. DRIER WEATHER LOOKS TO ARRIVE FOR THE EARLY PART OF
NEXT WEEKEND AS HIGH PRESSURE MOVES IN BEHIND A COLD FRONT FRIDAY.
