At 2:47 AM, National Weather Service Doppler Radars showed
widespread moderate showers across all of eastern Oklahoma and
northwest Arkansas, except for far southeast Oklahoma. Isolated
thunderstorms were also embedded in the larger area of showers,
especially near the I-40 corridor. All activity was moving to the
northeast at 45 mph.

Through 5 AM, most of eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas
will continue to see generally moderate rain. Pockets of heavy
rain and thunderstorms will continue across parts of east central
and southeast Oklahoma into northwest Arkansas, which could lead
to localized flooding in favored spots. Expect hourly rainfall
amounts up to a quarter of an inch in most areas, with half to
three-quarters of an inch in one hour in the thunderstorms.
