At 10:05 PM...Doppler radars detected scattered showers and
thunderstorms expanding in coverage across eastern Oklahoma, as a
cold front advances southeast through the region.

Through 11:45 PM...Showers and thunderstorms will continue to
spread south and east across eastern Oklahoma into northwest
Arkansas, ahead of the advancing cold front. The stronger storms
that occur will have the potential to produce large hail and
damaging winds, along with isolated tornadoes. Locally heavy
rainfall and dangerous cloud to ground lightning can also be
expected. Rainfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour will be
possible with the strongest storms that occur, and may result in
localized flooding for some areas.

A tornado watch remains in effect for much of eastern Oklahoma
until 2 AM CDT Sunday.
