EASTERN OKLAHOMA/NORTHWEST ARKANSAS WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TULSA OK
851 PM CDT THU APR 28 2016

Skies were mostly sunny this afternoon, and after a chilly start,
temperatures rebounded nicely, with high temperatures by late
afternoon peaking in the lower 70s to lower 80s. Light winds were
common across all of the area through the afternoon.

At mid evening, upper level cirrus cloudy were spreading east over
the area in response to convection taking place across western
Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle. A light northeast to east wind
was observed around the area this evening, along with temperatures
ranging from the upper 50s to around 70 degrees.

Clouds are expected to gradually increase over the area through
the evening, with shower and thunderstorm chance to also increase
after midnight. This is in response to a warm front which will be
lifting back to the north and into the region. Morning lows on
Friday will vary from the lower 50s to lower 60s. Shower and
thunderstorm chances will persist through the day Friday, with the
potential for some severe storms as well as locally heavy
rainfall. The cloud cover and anticipated rainfall will certainly
impact temperatures, with highs to only warm into the upper 60s to
mid 70s through the day.
