At 4:25 am, National Weather Service Doppler radar detected an
arcing north-south band of showers and thunderstorms over
eastern Oklahoma. The activity stretched from Bartlesville and
Tulsa down to Muskogee, McAlester and Hugo. Isolated showers have
developed ahead of the main band over Northwest Arkansas. The
activity is moving north-northeast at 40 miles an hour.

Through 6:30 am...the band of showers and thunderstorms will
gradually shift east over far eastern Oklahoma and should cross
over the state line into western Arkansas. Showers ahead of the
band will lift north over Washington and Benton counties in
Arkansas. Dangerous lightning, brief heavy downpours and gusty
winds will accompany the stronger cells. Rainfall rates between a
tenth to a half inch per hour can be expected.
