THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.

Scattered showers with a rumble or two of thunder remain possible
through this evening and overnight mainly across portions of
northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas as the upper low that

amounts will be fairly light with this activity with the
occasional brief moderate downpour possible.
SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Spotter Activation Not Expected.
.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.
THURSDAY...High Wind Potential.
SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...High Wind Potential.
Scattered showers are expected to linger around the area Thursday
morning in the wake of the slowly exiting upper low, with the best
chances being across northeastern Oklahoma into northwest
Arkansas. The pattern will become much quieter as this system
exits the region late in the day tomorrow. Upper level ridging is
expected to build in over the weekend with clearing skies and
warming temperatures expected for the Memorial Day Holiday. Winds
will become gusty out of the south, especially by Saturday into
early next week, with gusts near 30 mph at times each afternoon.
Rain and thunderstorm chances remain slim to none until possibly
the middle of next week.
