EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

After an extended period of fair weather, we are about to get into a very active weather pattern.

Right now, it appears storms may move into eastern Oklahoma late tonight and Friday morning but severe chances are expected to be low with this activity.  Another round of storms is expected to develop along a dry line over central Oklahoma Friday afternoon and move into eastern Oklahoma during the afternoon and evening hours, reaching northwest Arkansas Friday night.  Large hail and damaging wind gusts are possible as well as a few tornadoes, especially over eastern Oklahoma.

The system will be slow moving so another round of strong to severe thunderstorms will likely develop Saturday afternoon, affecting eastern Oklahoma (probably east of Highway 75) and northwest Arkansas.  Large hail, damaging wind, and a few tornadoes are again possible.  Flooding rainfall is not expected although some areas of far eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas will likely receive up to three inches of rain from Friday evening through Sunday morning.
