GUSTY SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL CONTINUE OVERNIGHT IN ADVANCE OF THE  
APPROACHING STORM SYSTEM FROM THE WEST. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND  
POSSIBLY WEAK THUNDERSTORMS WILL LIKELY BEGIN TO DEVELOP ACROSS  
PARTS OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA TOWARDS SUNRISE, WITH THIS ACTIVITY  
SLOWLY INCREASING THROUGH THE MORNING HOURS FRIDAY AS IT ADVANCES  
EAST. THE BEST CHANCE FOR SEVERE STORMS FRIDAY WILL BE ACROSS FAR  
SOUTHEAST AND EASTERN OKLAHOMA INTO NORTHWEST ARKANSAS FROM ABOUT  
MIDDAY THROUGH THE AFTERNOON HOURS, WITH DAMAGING WINDS BEING THE  
MAIN THREAT. A SECONDARY SEVERE HAIL THREAT WILL EXIST VERY LATE  
FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING ACROSS MAINLY NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA AS  
COLD TEMPERATURES ALOFT SPREAD INTO THIS AREA IN ASSOCIATION WITH  
THE CENTER OF THE UPPER LOW. THE CURRENT FORECAST HAS THIS  
SCENARIO WELL IN HAND, AND NO UPDATE IS PLANNED AT THIS TIME.
