northeast. The remnants of these showers may affect mainly
southeast Oklahoma this evening. A complex of thunderstorms is
expected to move across portions of northeast Texas overnight and
a few of these may affect far southeast Oklahoma toward sunrise.

TUESDAY through THURSDAY...No Hazards.
FRIDAY...Very High Fire Weather Potential...High Wind Potential.

An upper storm system will affect the region on Sunday, with
showers and thunderstorms spreading across eastern Oklahoma and
western Arkansas by afternoon. Widespread clouds should limit
instability and most storms should remain below severe limits. The
stronger storms will be capable of marginally severe hail. As the
upper low arrives late Sunday night, temperatures aloft will be
quite cold which may support small hail with any storms across
northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas.

Fire weather concerns on Monday will be higher in areas which do
not receive significant rainfall on Sunday. contains additional information.
