.DAY ONE...Tonight.

THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...Northeast Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
Thunderstorm chances will continue overnight tonight across
Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas as a cold front slowly
pushes across the region. The greater thunderstorm potential looks
to be mainly along and north of Interstate 40. Severe weather is
not anticipated overnight...though with the slow storm
movement...some periods of locally heavy rainfall could be
possible.

Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.
FRIDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Dangerous Heat Potential.
SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...No Hazards.
WEDNESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Thunderstorms may be ongoing Friday morning...with additional
development along the cold front possible during the afternoon.
There could be an isolated threat of severe storms Friday
afternoon across Southeast Oklahoma and West Central Arkansas. Hot
and humid conditions may also persist into Friday across far
southeast Oklahoma...where afternoon heat indices could reach 105
degrees.

Cooler and less humid conditions will overspread the region by the
weekend and persist well into next week. Low thunderstorm chances
may arrive for parts of Eastern Oklahoma by the latter half of
next week in response to a disturbance moving through the Central
and Southern Plains.
