result in locally heavy rainfall. The favored area for stronger storms
will generally be along and south of a Tulsa to Fayetteville line.

days as a series of upper level disturbances traverse the area. A limited
chance for severe weather will be possible on most days as moist and
unstable air-mass remains in place.
