At 10:18 PM...Doppler radars detected scattered showers and
thunderstorms across eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas. The
stronger storms have shifted into east-central and southeast
Oklahoma, as well as far northwest Arkansas, with widespread
showers and isolated thunderstorms occurring north and west.
Movement of this activity was to the northeast at around 40 mph.

Through 12:00 AM...Occasional showers and thunderstorms will
continue across the area, with the stronger storms to affect
locations along and south of a Vernon Oklahoma to Jay Oklahoma
line. Damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes will
remain possible with the stronger storms that occur. In addition,
rainfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour, coupled with training of
storms will increase the potential for flooding across these
areas. Dangerous and frequent cloud to ground lightning can also
be expected in and close to thunderstorms.
