A windy and warm day is on tap today, with cloudiness increasing ahead of a lead shortwave that will move into the plains this afternoon and evening.
Showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible by late afternoon in parts of eastern Oklahoma, with precipitation coverage and intensity expanding eastward this evening.
Behind the lead shortwave, a relative lull in precipitation will occur late tonight and Thursday morning. A cold front will enter northeast Oklahoma early Thursday and push slowly southeast across the area.
Showers and scattered thunderstorms will once again increase in coverage and intensity across the area late Thursday and Thursday night as the main upper level storm system approaches from the west.
Locally heavy rainfall will be possible, especially closer to the frontal boundary from southeast Oklahoma into northwest Arkansas.
