Eastern Oklahoma/Northwest Arkansas Weather Summary
National Weather Service Tulsa OK

Mostly clear skies persisted into the evening hours across
eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. High temperatures this
afternoon reached into the upper 70s, to the lower 90s. At 8pm,
winds were light and variable. Temperatures ranged from 75
degrees in Bartlesville, to 84 degrees in Fort Smith.

Weather conditions this evening will remain quiet and dry, with
light winds and mainly clear skies. A complex of showers and
storms is expected to develop across western Oklahoma and
southwest Kansas tonight, and track eastward toward our area early

system could bring an increase in cloud cover for Friday morning,
and perhaps a few remaining light rain showers. A second stronger
complex is forecast to develop over south central Kansas and north
central Oklahoma Friday afternoon, and spread southeast across the
area through Friday evening. This system will bring possible
strong to severe storms to the area. The main threats will be
strong damaging winds and very heavy rainfall. Slight chances for
precipitation will persist into the weekend.

northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas, to the middle 70s
across southeast Oklahoma and west central Arkansas.
