This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...Tonight

A cold front will slowly sag southeast into and through Arkansas
this evening and tonight, and develop scattered showers and
thunderstorms. A marginal risk of severe storms is forecast, with
mainly an isolated strong to severe storm possible. The main threats
of any severe storm will be damaging winds and large hail, while
locally heavy rainfall will also be possible. After midnight, the
any strong to severe storms are forecast to weaken.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday Through Monday

Some lingering chances for showers and thunderstorms will remain
in the forecast early on Wednesday across southern portions of the
area. However, the threat for hazardous weather will become low as
drier, more stable air moves into the state. Expect the calmer
conditions to persist through the rest of the week.

Showers and thunderstorms will return to the forecast by late in the
weekend as the front to the south of the region moves back to the
north a bit. At this time, the threat of severe weather with this
system is low.

However, then all eyes are on the remnants of Tropical Storm Harvey,
which is moving across the Yucatan peninsula Tuesday. The system is
expected to make landfall in Texas around Friday. The remnants of
the storm could move in the direction of Arkansas by early next
week. If this pans out, there will be a significant increase in
heavy rainfall potential. Arkansans should continue to monitor the
latest forecasts from the National Weather Service concerning this
potential heavy rainfall early next week.
