444 AM CDT Sat Mar 24 2018 DAY ONE Today and Tonight. THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING. RISKLimited. AREA Far Southeast Oklahoma. ONSET After Midnight. FIRE WEATHER DANGER. RISK Limited. AREA Most of Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas. ONSET Late Morning. DISCUSSION A limited risk of rapid fire spread will develop late morning and continue through this afternoon across most of eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas due to continued gusty winds and well above normal afternoon temperatures. A small chance of thunderstorms will exist after midnight across far southeast Oklahoma as a cold front briefly stalls just south of the Red River. Severe weather is unlikely. SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT Spotter Activation Not Expected. DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN Sunday through Friday. SUNDAY Thunderstorm Potential. MONDAY Thunderstorm Potential Very High Fire Weather Potential High Wind Potential...Heavy Rain Potential. TUESDAY Thunderstorm Potential Heavy Rain Potential. WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY No Hazards. EXTENDED DISCUSSION Shower and thunderstorm potential will increase through the day Sunday as the aforementioned cold front lifts northward as a warm front. A few of the thunderstorms Sunday evening and into early Monday morning may be strong to severe, capable of producing hail to the size of half dollars, especially across parts of northeast Oklahoma. Additional showers and thunderstorms will be likely Monday and into Monday night as another slow-moving cold front moves into the region. A few of these thunderstorms will likely be severe, with hail to the size of ping pong balls and winds to 60 mph possible. Parts of eastern Oklahoma will be most likely to see severe thunderstorms Monday. In addition to the severe thunderstorm potential, the threat of locally heavy rainfall will increase Monday night due to the slow movement of the front. With the upper level system expected to be slow to push east of the area, the heavy rainfall potential will linger through at least Tuesday night and perhaps into Wednesday morning as well. Storm total rainfall amounts in the 2 to 4 inch range continue to appear possible, which could lead to both river flooding and isolated flash flooding. EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PLANNING STATEMENT Monitor the latest forecasts as multiple rounds of heavy rainfall and some severe weather potential appear likely, leading to increased flooding concerns during the early to middle part of next week. weather.gov/tulsa contains additional information.
