951 PM CDT FRI APR 29 2016

Showers and thunderstorms were developing and spreading to the
northeast across eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas late this
afternoon. High temperatures ranged from the upper 60s to lower 70s,
as the sky was cloudy through much of the day. The wind was from the
east southeast at 10 to 15 mph, with gusts to 25.

Upper low pressure over southeast Colorado, was propelling a cold
front into northwest Oklahoma by mid evening. Numerous showers and
thunderstorms having developed this afternoon, had become confined
to extreme eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. The storm system
produced strong to severe thunderstorms across the region this
afternoon and evening. Most common from storms having become severe,
was large hail, locally heavy rain, strong gusty wind, and an
isolated tornado. Hail to the size of golf balls and tennis balls,
had occurred in parts of east central and southeast Oklahoma, and in
west central Arkansas.

Temperatures throughout the area at around 9:30 PM, ranged primarily
in the 60s. The wind was from the southeast at 5 to 15 mph with

EASTERN OKLAHOMA/NORTHWEST ARKANSAS WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TULSA OK
1022 AM CDT FRI APR 29 2016

Mostly cloudy skies early this morning persisted into the morning
hours across eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. Scattered rain
showers with isolated thunderstorms also continued to develop and
spread northeast across the area. Low temperatures this morning
dropped down into the lower 50s, to the lower 60s. At 10am, winds
were out of the east, between 5 and 15 miles per hour, gusting to
25 miles per hour. Temperatures ranged from 54 degrees in
Fayetteville, to 62 degrees in McAlester.

With a surface low pressure system over northwest Texas, and the
associated warm front extended eastward along the Red River,
scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to develop ahead
of this system and lift northeast across the region. Some of the
storms could become strong to severe later this afternoon as the
system moves over the area. The main threats will be large hail
and strong winds, especially along and south of highway 40. There
is also an isolated tornado threat,a mainly near the warm front
across far south central and southeast Oklahoma. As the system
tracks northeast across the region today, the associated cold
front will push through the area early Saturday morning.
Additional showers and thunderstorms will develop along and ahead
of this frontal boundary affecting much of eastern Oklahoma and
western Arkansas. The precipitation should come to an end mid day
Saturday as cooler and more stable air spreads into the region
from the north.

High temperatures today, will range from the middle 60s across
northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas, to the mid 70s across
southeast Oklahoma.

Low temperatures tonight, will range from the lower 50s across
north central Oklahoma, to the middle 60s across southeast
Oklahoma and west central Arkansas.

EASTERN OKLAHOMA/NORTHWEST ARKANSAS WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TULSA OK
851 PM CDT THU APR 28 2016

Skies were mostly sunny this afternoon, and after a chilly start,
temperatures rebounded nicely, with high temperatures by late
afternoon peaking in the lower 70s to lower 80s. Light winds were
common across all of the area through the afternoon.

At mid evening, upper level cirrus cloudy were spreading east over
the area in response to convection taking place across western
Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle. A light northeast to east wind
was observed around the area this evening, along with temperatures
ranging from the upper 50s to around 70 degrees.

Clouds are expected to gradually increase over the area through
the evening, with shower and thunderstorm chance to also increase
after midnight. This is in response to a warm front which will be
lifting back to the north and into the region. Morning lows on
Friday will vary from the lower 50s to lower 60s. Shower and
thunderstorm chances will persist through the day Friday, with the
potential for some severe storms as well as locally heavy
rainfall. The cloud cover and anticipated rainfall will certainly
impact temperatures, with highs to only warm into the upper 60s to
mid 70s through the day.
