At 10:15 AM...Doppler radars detected scattered showers and
thunderstorms across portions of eastern Oklahoma and northwest
Arkansas, moving east at around 25 mph.

Through 12:15 PM...Scattered showers and thunderstorms will
continue across the area, mainly to the north of a frontal
boundary draped across far southeast Oklahoma. The stronger storms
that occur will have the potential to produce damaging winds,
large hail, and locally heavy rainfall. Due to the heavy rains
that have already occurred across the area, there is an increased
risk of flash flooding, especially for low lying and flood prone
areas. Dangerous cloud to ground lightning can also be expected in
and close to thunderstorms.

A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for much of eastern
Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas until 3 PM. A flash flood watch is
also in effect through this evening for much of northeast
Oklahoma and far northwest Arkansas.
