At 7:30 PM...Doppler radars detected scattered thunderstorms along
a frontal boundary across far northeast Oklahoma. Additional
showers and thunderstorms were also indicated further south across
parts of eastern Oklahoma and far northwest Arkansas. All of this
activity was racing northeast at 40 to 50 mph.

Through 9:00 PM...Showers and thunderstorms will continue across
the area, with additional development expected along the frontal
boundary north of interstate 44. Additionally, scattered showers
and storms will remain possible south of this line. The stronger
storms will be capable of producing large hail, damaging winds and
isolated tornadoes. In addition, rainfall rates of 1 to 3 inches
per hour, coupled with training of storms, may result in localized
flooding across some areas. Dangerous and frequent cloud to ground
lightning can also be expected with any thunderstorms that occur
this evening.

A tornado watch remains in effect for most of eastern Oklahoma and
northwest Arkansas until midnight.
