ACROSS MUCH OF NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS TODAY.
THEREFORE... THE CHANCES OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS MOVING EASTWARD
INTO PARTS OF NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS REMAIN
QUITE LIMITED THROUGH TONIGHT.

FOR THE POTENTIAL OF SEVERE WEATHER. AFTER THIS SYSTEM EXITS THE
REGION...HIGH PRESSURE LOOKS TO SET UP OVER THE PLAINS WITHIN
NORTHWESTERLY UPPER LEVEL FLOW... ALLOWING FOR A PERIOD OF
UNEVENTFUL WEATHER.
