.PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 258 AM CDT Mon Jun 17 2019/

DISCUSSION...
Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms continue
across eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas this morning
as a mid-level low spins overhead. Will continue to see
scattered showers and thunderstorms across the area Today
as the mid-level low shifts slowly off to the east. The
showers and thunderstorms associated with these feature
are expected to exit the region this evening.

After a short lull in the shower and thunderstorm activity,
the chances ramp up late Tuesday afternoon and continue right
through Wednesday night as a series of mid-level shortwaves
move out of the Rockies and across the Plains. A Thunderstorm
complex is expected to develop across western Kansas and western
Oklahoma and move into eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas
Tuesday night. This complex of storms will have the potential
to be severe with damaging winds the main concern. Heavy rains
will also be possible. The potential for strong to severe
thunderstorms continues on Wednesday as thunderstorms develop in
the vicinity of a frontal boundary draped across the area as
a mid-level shortwave approaches. Strong gusty winds and large
hail will be the concern.

Thursday and Friday are expected to be dry. However, the chances
of showers and thunderstorms increase Saturday afternoon and
continue into early next week as the flow aloft becomes southwesterly
and a series of mid-level shortwaves move across the area once
again.
