.NOW...
AT 12:25 PM...DOPPLER RADARS DETECTED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
INCREASING IN COVERAGE ACROSS EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST
ARKANSAS. THIS ACTIVITY WAS OCCURRING IN RESPONSE TO SURFACE
HEATING AND A SURFACE BOUNDARY DRAPED ACROSS THE AREA...AND WAS
EXHIBITING LITTLE MOVEMENT.

THROUGH 2:00 PM...WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL
CONTINUE ACROSS THE AREA...WITH ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT EXPECTED IN
RESPONSE TO ONGOING SURFACE HEATING...A WEAK SURFACE BOUNDARY AND
RESULTANT OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES FROM PRODUCED BY ONGOING CONVECTION.
THE STRONGER STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCALLY HEAVY
DOWNPOURS...GUSTY WINDS AND DANGEROUS CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING.
THE SLOW MOVEMENT OF THIS ACTIVITY WILL ALSO INCREASE THE
POTENTIAL FOR LOCALIZED FLOODING...ESPECIALLY FOR LOW LYING AND
POOR DRAINAGE AREAS.
