SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.

AREA...EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.
ONSET...THIS AFTERNOON.

DANGEROUS HEAT.
RISK...ELEVATED.
AREA...SOUTHEASTERN OKLAHOMA AND WEST CENTRAL ARKANSAS.

DISCUSSION...
TEMPERATURES IN THE MID 90S TO NEAR 100 COMBINED WITH HIGH HUMIDITY
WILL RESULT IN MAXIMUM HEAT INDEX VALUES FROM 102 TO 106 THIS
AFTERNOON GENERALLY ALONG AND SOUTH OF I-40.

WIDELY SCATTERED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO AFFECT
MUCH OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS TODAY AND TONIGHT DUE
TO THE PROXIMITY OF A WEAK COLD FRONT. A LIMITED THREAT OF SEVERE
WEATHER WILL EXIST THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING WHEN THE ATMOSPHERE IS
MOST UNSTABLE. DAMAGING WIND GUSTS WILL BE THE MOST LIKELY SEVERE
WEATHER THREAT WITH THE STRONGER STORMS THAT FORM.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
LOCAL SPOTTER ACTIVATION MAY BE NEEDED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
FRIDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL.
SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...NO HAZARDS.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
WIDELY SCATTERED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL AGAIN BE POSSIBLE
FRIDAY INTO FRIDAY EVENING AS THE WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY REMAINS OVER
THE REGION. SEVERE WEATHER POTENTIAL IS VERY LOW WITH ANY ACTIVITY
THAT OCCURS.

THE HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM THAT HAS SUPPORTED THE RECENT HOT WEATHER
WILL DRIFT WEST TODAY AND FRIDAY. THE UNSEASONABLY HOT WEATHER WILL
MODERATE SOME THROUGH FRIDAY AS A RESULT. HEAT WILL BEGIN TO INCREASE
AGAIN THIS WEEKEND WITH MOST LOCATIONS SEEING TEMPERATURES RETURNING
TO NEAR OR ABOVE SEASONAL AVERAGES BY MONDAY...CONTINUING INTO THE
MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.
