SEVERE THREAT RETURNS TO Eastern OK / Western/ Central Arkansas for
Tuesday PM. (Main Timing: 3 PM – 11 PM )
Ahead of a dry line and cold front moisture return should be adequate by Tomorrow Afternoon/evening across Eastern Oklahoma, (East of I-35) for at least a few Severe Thunderstorms. We should see some low-level clouds through much of the day, which will have an impact on our amount of instability One of several factors impacting the potential storm development. SBCape Values could be in excess of 1500+ J/Kg by the late afternoon across portions of far Eastern OK into Western Arkansas. That combined with effective shear values near 45kts and enough lift could result in a couple significant severe storms. The greatest area for concern would be the counties which are closest to the OK/AR border.
All modes of severe weather will be possible in the “Enhanced” risk zone, including a couple of Tornadoes.
So bottom line no need to panic, just make sure you’re staying weather aware Tuesday if you live across Eastern OK into Western AR.
