EASTERN OKLAHOMA/NORTHWEST ARKANSAS WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TULSA OK
1111 AM CDT MON JUL 25 2016

Partly to mostly cloudy skies expanded across the area during the
morning hours as a thunderstorms complex affected southeast Kansas
and northeast Oklahoma. Showers and thunderstorms developed, and
tracked eastward across the area, bringing heavy rainfall to a few
locations near the Kansas border. Low temperatures this morning
dropped down into the lower 70s, to the lower 80s. At 11am, winds
were light and variable south of Highway 40, but out of the
northeast between 10 and 20 miles per hour, gusting to 30 miles
per hour north of Highway 40. Temperatures ranged from 74 degrees
in Fayetteville, to 90 degrees in Muskogee.

The persistent area of high pressure will begin to break down over
the Central and Southern Plains, and shift westward. This will
allow for shower and thunderstorm development across the area, as
well as a few degrees drop in temperature. Slight chances for
precipitation will continue today, mainly across far eastern
Oklahoma into western Arkansas. Additional chances for rain will
continue through the work week. While temperatures will be a 5 to
10 degrees cooler, highs will still reach into the 90s across much
of the forecast area, with heat indices in the upper 90s to lower
100s.

High temperatures today, will range from the middle 80s across
northwest Arkansas, to the middle 90s across eastern Oklahoma.

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