Seasonably warm and dry weather is expected Thursday and Friday

the region Saturday night. Increasing moisture ahead of the front
could result in scattered showers and a few thunderstorms Friday night
into early Saturday. Severe weather chances will be low with these
storms. More widespread and stronger activity will develop along
a cold front which will move southeast through Oklahoma and
Arkansas late Saturday evening into early Sunday morning. There is
a marginal severe storm risk with the system, mainly across
eastern Oklahoma. In addition to strong winds and hail, locally
heavy rainfall will be possible. Many locations will receive 1 to 1.5
inch amounts with locally 3 inches possible. Cooler and dry
conditions will prevail behind the front.
