Discussion...
scattered showers continue to move across eastern Oklahoma
this morning as a middle-level trough moves into central Oklahoma.
Scattered showers will persist this morning and into early
this afternoon across eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas
as the middle-level trough moves across the area.

Unseasonably warm temperatures will be the weather story across
eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas Friday and over the weekend
as a middle-level ridge builds over the area. Afternoon temperatures
will be 10 to 15 degrees above normal for this time of year.

The next chance of showers and thunderstorms will be Monday night
into Tuesday as the middle-level ridge shifts to the east and a
shortwave moves across the plains. The showers and thunderstorms
are expected to develop in the vicinity of the associated
cold front as it moves through the area. Temperatures will be
knocked down to near seasonal levels behind this frontal boundary
next Wednesday.
