severe weather potential during the day is expected to
remain limited. More widespread showers and thunderstorms
are expected Thursday night through Friday, especially
along and north of Interstate 40. Heavy rainfall is
expected across this region, and both flash flooding and
larger river flooding is likely to become a concern by
Friday night. A flood watch has been issued for all of
northeast Oklahoma and most of northwest Arkansas for
later Thursday night into Friday night.

Additionally, the severe weather potential will increase south
of the heaviest rains which will include much of east central
and southeast Oklahoma along with northwest Arkansas. The
severe weather potential will be highest from mid Friday
afternoon through Friday night as a cold front sweeps through
the region.

Much cooler temperatures are expected Saturday with rain ending
from west to east.  Gusty south winds return by early next week.
