MUCH OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...LIMITED.
AREA...EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN ARKANSAS.

DISCUSSION...
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THIS
MORNING...WITH A LIMITED THREAT OF DAMAGING WIND GUSTS. THESE
STORMS SHOULD MOVE OUT OF THE AREA LATER THIS MORNING WITH AN
UNSTABLE AIRMASS REMAINING IN PLACE. A STRONG CAP IS EXPECTED TO
REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGHOUT THE DAY AND WILL LIMIT THE POTENTIAL
FOR ADDITIONAL STORMS THIS AFTERNOON. ADDITIONAL SEVERE STORMS MAY
DEVELOP ALONG THE DRY LINE TO OUR WEST AND EVENTUALLY MOVE INTO
THE AREA TONIGHT...THOUGH CONFIDENCE IN THIS HAPPENING REMAINS
LOW. DUE TO THE EXPECTED DEGREE OF INSTABILITY HOWEVER...ANY
STORMS THAT MIGHT OCCUR THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH TONIGHT WILL POSE A
THREAT OF VERY LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WIND GUSTS ALONG WITH
LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
THURSDAY...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL...HIGH WIND POTENTIAL.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
DAILY THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL CONTINUE THIS WEEK INTO EARLY NEXT
WEEK. INSTABILITY WILL REMAIN HIGH ACROSS THE SOUTHERN
PLAINS...SUPPORTING PERIODIC CHANCES FOR AT LEAST ISOLATED SEVERE
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.
