.NOW...
At 5:55 PM, National Weather Service radars continued to detect
thunderstorms and rainshowers over most of eastern Oklahoma and
northwest Arkansas. The strongest storms were located from near
Tenkiller Lake south to Savanna in Pittsburg county. Movement was
to the east at 45 miles an hour.

Through 8 PM, strong to severe thunderstorms will move across the
eastern one quarter of Oklahoma into western Arkansas. South of
Interstate 40, tornadoes, large hail, winds to 70 miles an hour,
intense rainfall, and dangerous cloud to ground lightning are a
possibility. Hourly rainfall rates up to one inch per hour can
also be expected with the strongest storms. Widespread showers and
a few thunderstorms are also developing to the west, and will move
into northeast Oklahoma.

Dangerous flooding can also be expected as more rain moves over
already rain soaked areas. Some areas from Creek to Rogers county
have received over 4 inches of rain the past 24 hours.
