A NARROW BAND OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS HAVE CONTINUED TO MOVE
OVER THE SAME AREAS...BEGINNING THIS MORNING AND CONTINUING THIS
AFTERNOON. THE NARROW BAND OF HEAVIEST RAINFALL HAS OCCURRED
ACROSS MUCH OF WASHINGTON...AND PARTS OF TULSA COUNTIES IN
NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL LIKELY BE
CONFINED TO THESE SAME AREAS FOR MOST OF THE AFTERNOON. WHILE AN
OVERALL WEAKENING TREND AND A LESS AREAL COVERAGE IS
ANTICIPATED...LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL MAY COMPOUND ALREADY
SATURATED GROUNDS FROM THIS MORNINGS RAIN...AND LEAD TO ADDITIONAL
FLASH FLOODING THIS AFTERNOON. A LIMITED SEVERE POTENTIAL ALSO
EXISTS...WHERE MARGINALLY SEVERE HAIL WOULD BE THE MAIN THREAT.

ADDITIONALLY...AN OUTFLOW BOUNDARY HAS PUSHED OUT OF THE
STORMS...AND MAY PRODUCE A BRIEF WIND GUST BETWEEN 20 AND 25 MILES
AN HOUR.

LATER TONIGHT...THUNDERSTORMS IN ADVANCE OF A COLD FRONT MAY
APPROACH AREAS NORTHWEST OF INTERSTATE 44. SEVERE WEATHER IS NOT
EXPECTED WITH THESE STORMS.

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

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

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
A FEW THUNDERSTORMS MAY BE ONGOING FRIDAY MORNING ACROSS AREAS
NEAR THE KANSAS BORDER. SCATTERED ADDITIONAL THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED TO DEVELOP FRIDAY NIGHT AND INTO SATURDAY MORNING AS THE
FRONT PASSES THROUGH EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN ARKANSAS. THE
SEVERE WEATHER POTENTIAL WILL REMAIN LOW.

DRY AND WARMER WEATHER WILL PREVAIL FROM LATE IN THE WEEKEND INTO
NEXT WEEK AS AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE BUILDS INTO THE CENTRAL UNITED
STATES.
