At 7:55 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
Checotah to Clayton. Movement was to the east at 30 miles an hour.

Through 10 PM, strong to severe thunderstorms will remain likely
south of Interstate 40. Large hail, damaging thunderstorm winds,
intense rainfall, dangerous cloud to ground lightning, and even
isolated tornadoes are possible. North of Interstate 40,
thunderstorms containing brief heavy rainfall will occur. Rainfall
associated with any of the strongest storms could produce rainfall
rates of three quarters of an inch per hour.

Any rains that fall over previously water logged areas could
produce flash flooding.
