At 1:45 PM...Doppler radars detected scattered areas of showers
and thunderstorms across portions of Northeast Oklahoma and
Northwest Arkansas. This activity was mainly between Interstate 44
and Interstate 40 in Oklahoma and north of Interstate 40 over
much of Northwest Arkansas. Movement of this activity varied
between east to north to west around 5 to 20 mph as they wrap
around low pressure. The strongest storms were located over Adair
county in Oklahoma and Crawford and Washington counties in
Northwest Arkansas.

Through 3:00 PM...Widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will
continue to develop across Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest
Arkansas as low pressure slowly moves across the region. The
greater potential looks to be mainly between Interstate 44 and
Interstate 40 in Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas...with
isolated showers and storms north and south of the interstates.
Dangerous lightning...strong winds and small hail will be
possible in the stronger storms...with the potential of becoming
marginally severe. Also...periods of heavy rainfall will be
possible within the stronger storms...and with the slow movement
of the storms...localized flash flooding concerns could develop.
