DISCUSSION...
ANOTHER THUNDERSTORM COMPLEX IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP TO OUR WEST

DEVELOPMENT POSSIBLE INTO THE AFTERNOON. HIGH THUNDERSTORM CHANCES
WILL REMAIN IN THE FORECAST INTO SATURDAY AS A COLD FRONT MOVES
THROUGH THE AREA. THE CONTINUED RISK OF MODERATE TO HEAVY
RAINFALL FROM STORMS HAS PROMPTED A FLOOD WATCH THROUGH SATURDAY

THUNDERSTORMS WITH HAIL AND WIND SECONDARY THREATS.

THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL LESSEN HEADING INTO NEXT WEEK...BUT AT
LEAST ISOLATED STORMS WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE IN FAR EASTERN OKLAHOMA
AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.

THESE RESERVOIRS WILL ALSO BACK UP AND FLOOD UNTIL LAKE LEVELS
GET UNDER CONTROL. ROADS NEAR THESE LAKES MAY BE UNDER WATER DUE
