.DISCUSSION...

A rainy Saturday is on tap for eastern Oklahoma and western
Arkansas as an upper level low currently centered over Utah
heads to the east-southeast across the Plains and eventually
across the lower Mississippi Valley as we head into Sunday.
Isolated thunderstorms will be possible across southeast Oklahoma
and west-central Arkansas Saturday into Saturday night where
the elevated instability will be most favorable. Any severe
weather is expected to remain south of the area. Most Areas
could see around an inch of rain with this evening with 1 to 2
inches of rain possible across southeast Oklahoma.

The next chances of the showers and thunderstorms will be
Tuesday night into Wednesday as the next upper level shortwave
moves out of the Rockies and across the Plains. With another
quick hitting chance of showers and possibly a thunderstorm
Thursday night as an another shortwave sweeps across the region.

Temperatures are expected to remain at or below normal levels
for this time of year for the entire forecast period.
