Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible today, mainly across Southeast Oklahoma, Southwest Arkansas and portions of Northern and Northeastern Louisiana along a weak surface front. Adequate shear and instability will be present for the potential for isolated strong to severe thunderstorms to redevelop over these areas.

Looks Like The Heat Is Here For Most Of This Week

The National Weather Service goes on to warn that the heat is here to stay with the current Heat Advisory in effect through the day Wednesday until 7:00 pm across the entire Four State Region.
