Discussion...
a few isolated showers/thunderstorms will be possible across eastern
Oklahoma today where deeper moisture currently resides under modest
northwest flow aloft. Drier air-mass will filter into the region
from the east as weak surface high builds across western Arkansas
tonight into Saturday. This will allow for cooler overnight
lows through the weekend...especially across southeast Oklahoma
and northwest Arkansas...while also keeping heat indices in check.

Precipitation chances will remain relatively low into early next
week with temperatures remaining near normal for much of the area.
A weak upper level impulse will shift east out of The Rockies
into the Central Plains Tuesday into Wednesday with at least a
limited chance for scattered showers/thunderstorms across
northeast Oklahoma/northwest Arkansas during this time.

Upper ridge will begin to slowly build back east into the area by
the latter half of next week with hot/dry conditions as southwesterly
winds return.
