.NOW...
AT 9:29 PM...DOPPLER RADARS DETECTED SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS PARTS OF OSAGE AND PAWNEE COUNTIES. ISOLATED
ACTIVITY WAS ALSO NOTED ALONG THE CRAIG AND OTTAWA COUNTY LINES. A
MUCH LARGE AREA OF STORMS WAS MOVING OUT OF CENTRAL OKLAHOMA AND
APPROACHING WESTERN CREEK...OKFUSKEE AND CHOCTAW COUNTIES. ALL OF
THIS ACTIVITY WAS MOVING RAPIDLY NORTHEAST.

THROUGH 10:45 PM...SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TO
GRADUALLY INCREASE IN COVERAGE ACROSS EASTERN OKLAHOMA. LOCATIONS
LIKELY TO BE AFFECTED DURING THIS TIME INCLUDE THOSE WEST OF A
SOPER TO COPAN LINE. STRONG WINDS AND LARGE HAIL WILL BE THE
PRIMARY IMPACTS WITH THE STRONGER STORMS THAT OCCUR, HOWEVER
ISOLATED TORNADOES WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY ALONG THE
LEADING EDGE OF THE LINE OF STORMS. LOCALLY HEAVY DOWNPOURS AND
FREQUENT CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING CAN ALSO BE EXPECTED WITH
THUNDERSTORMS.

A TORNADO WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR A LARGE PORTION OF EASTERN
OKLAHOMA UNTIL MIDNIGHT.
