Eastern Oklahoma/Northwest Arkansas Weather Summary
National Weather Service Tulsa OK
833 PM CDT Thu May 25 2017

Mostly clear skies during the afternoon, turned to partly
cloudy by evening as clouds spread into the area from the west.
High temperatures this afternoon were warmer, reaching into the upper
70s, to the middle 80s. At 8pm, winds were out of the southeast,
between 5 and 10 miles per hour, gusting to 15 miles per hour.
Temperatures ranged from 74 degrees in Fayetteville, to 82 degrees
in McAlester.

Weather conditions this evening and overnight will remain quiet
and dry, with partly cloudy skies and a steady southerly breeze. A
weak low pressure system will pass over the area Friday, keeping
skies partly to mostly cloudy. A few scattered rain showers or
thunderstorms may develop during the late afternoon or evening,
mainly across northeast Oklahoma and western Arkansas. While a few
of the storms could become strong, widespread severe weather is
not expected Friday. A second round of showers and storms will
develop Saturday as a cold front pushes into the region. The best
time frame for storms looks to be from late Saturday afternoon
into Saturday night. Strong to severe storms are expected from
this second round, with very large hail, strong damaging winds,
and isolated tornadoes all possible. With many people enjoying a
long holiday weekend, and spending time outside, this could catch
people off guard. Stay weather aware Saturday, especially during
the afternoon and evening. Have a way to receive severe weather
warnings if out and about. The threat for severe weather should
end Sunday morning, as cooler and more stable air spreads into the
region.

Low temperatures tonight, will range from the lower 60s across
northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas, to the lower 70s across
southeast Oklahoma.

High temperatures Friday, will range from the lower 80s across
northwest Arkansas, to the lower 90s across southeast Oklahoma
and west central Arkansas.
