Scattered thunderstorms will continue into Tuesday morning with a
limited severe weather threat. Low thunderstorm chances will also
exist across parts of northeast Oklahoma and far northwest
Arkansas late Tuesday night and Wednesday night as a frontal

A better chance of thunderstorms, possibly severe, will occur
late Friday into Friday night as a cold front moves southeast
across the area. Any lingering storms will come to an end during
the day Saturday.
