Eastern Oklahoma/Northwest Arkansas Weather Summary
National Weather Service Tulsa OK
915 PM CDT Tue May 22 2018

Partly to mostly cloudy conditions were observed across area skies
this afternoon, with hot and humid conditions persisting across
eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas. Widely scattered showers
and thunderstorms occurred across the area again today, initially
within the higher terrain of far eastern Oklahoma and northwest
Arkansas, before expanding west. Locally heavy rainfall and brief
gusty winds were the primary impacts from these showers and
storms, which quickly dissipated with the loss of daytime heating.
High temperatures around the area this afternoon varied from the
mid 80s to lower 90s, with light winds common through the day.

At mid evening, all precipitation had dissipated with clear to
partly cloudy skies now common over the area. Light east to
southeast winds prevailed this evening, with temperatures ranging
from the upper 60s to around 80 degrees.

Clouds will be on the increase over the area during the overnight
and into the morning hours on Wednesday. Low temperatures tomorrow
will range from the mid to upper 60s. Shower and thunderstorm
chances will be on the increase across the area on Wednesday, as
an upper level disturbance slowly moves over the region. Rain
chances will linger into early Thursday before the upper system
finally passes off to the east. The anticipated cloud cover and
precipitation will hold temperatures down just a few degrees
tomorrow, with high projected to vary from the lower to mid 80s.
