eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas early tonight. These storms
will pose a threat of producing hail up to golfball size and damaging
wind gusts to 65 mph. Organized thunderstorms over southwestern
Kansas late this evening are expected to continue moving southeast
tonight and affect portions of eastern Oklahoma after 3 am. Damaging
wind gusts up to 70 mph would be the main threat with these storms.

Strong to severe thunderstorms are expected to organize over western
Kansas and northwest Oklahoma Sunday afternoon and evening and will
move eastward Sunday night. Some of this activity is expected to move
through portions of northeastern Oklahoma and possibly northwestern
Arkansas. Damaging wind gusts and locally heavy rainfall will be the
main threats with these storms. A chance of thunderstorms will
persist along any remnant outflow boundary and the cold front Monday
through Tuesday, primarily across northeast Oklahoma and northwestern
Arkansas.

High pressure will gradually strengthen over the region by the
middle of next week. The combination of the intensifying heat and
humidity will bring forecast afternoon heat index values to
potentially dangerous levels on Wednesday and Thursday, possibly
extending through the end of the work week.
