Wind Main Threat From Arkansas, Oklahoma Storms
The National Weather Service says wind is the main threat from storms forming in western and central Arkansas and into eastern Oklahoma, though some flash flooding is also possible.
The weather service said Sunday that the threat would continue overnight and persist into this morning.
A flash flood watch was in place Sunday for much of northern Arkansas. Thunderstorm chances are forecast to decrease Monday and Tuesday.
A weak frontal boundary will bring increased storm chances by the middle of the week into the weekend.
Hot and humid conditions are in store for the week ahead. Heat index values in the triple digits will be common in places.
