Weather Blog: Rain chances before the beginning of summer

Weather Talk

Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms continue across eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas this morning as mid-level low spins overhead.

We will continue to see scattered showers and thunderstorms across the area today as the mid-level low shifts slowly off to the east. The showers and thunderstorms associated with this feature are expected to exit the region this evening.

After a short lull in the shower and thunderstorm activity, the chances ramp up late Tuesday afternoon and continue right through Wednesday night as a series of mid-level shortwaves move out of the Rockies and across the plains.

A thunderstorm complex is expected to develop across western Kansas and western Oklahoma and move into eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas Tuesday night.

This complex of storms will have the potential to be severe with damaging winds the main concern. Heavy rains will also be possible. The potential for strong to severe thunderstorms continues on Wednesday as thunderstorms develop in the vicinity of a frontal boundary draped across the area as a mid-level shortwave approaches.

Strong gusty winds and large hail will be the concern.
