THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT WILL CONTINUE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING...AND SHIFT EASTWARD AS THE STORMS ADVANCE. THE EXPECTED SCENARIO IS THAT STORMS BECOME STRONGER THROUGH THE AFTERNOON HOURS...WITH THE FAVORED AREA FOR SEVERE WEATHER BEING SOUTHEAST OF A LINE FROM FAYETTEVILLE TO MCALESTER.
WIND FIELDS ALOFT ARE STRONG AND ANY SUSTAINED UPDRAFT WILL HAVE POTENTIAL TO CREATE DAMAGING WINDS AND POSSIBLY QUARTER SIZE HAIL. ADDITIONALLY...LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR WILL BE SUFFICIENTLY STRONG TO WARRANT A RISK OF TORNADOES...THOUGH
THIS RISK WILL QUICKLY SHIFT FURTHER EASTWARD BY EARLY EVENING.
