...THE HEAVY RAINS HAVE ENDED, BUT DANGEROUS AREAL AND RIVER
FLOODING WILL CONTINUE...

This Outlook is for Northwest and West Central Arkansas as well as
much of Eastern Oklahoma.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

AREAL/RIVER FLOOD.
 RISK...Significant.
 AREA...northeast Oklahoma and far northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...ongoing.

SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
 RISK...Elevated.
AREA...eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas.
 ONSET...around midday.

DISCUSSION...

The heavy rains have ended over the region. However, widespread
heavy rainfall fell across northeast Oklahoma and northwest
Arkansas this weekend. This heavy rainfall will continue to cause
dangerous river and areal flooding thru the weekend.

A strong low pressure system over the Plains will bring strong
wind gusts to near 40 mph later today. The winds are not expected
to subside until mid evening.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
MONDAY...High Wind Potential.
TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
FRIDAY and SATURDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...

Another storm system will bring thunderstorm potential to the
region Tuesday night into Wednesday. Instability will be limited
across much of the region, and this will negate a severe weather
risk. However, a swath of locally heavy rain is expected to fall
across northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas, on areas already
hard hit by the weekend rains. Some additional flooding is
possible.

Another strong upper system will dive down over the lower to mid
Mississippi valley on Thursday. Cold temps aloft will support the
potential for afternoon thunderstorms over far eastern Oklahoma
into western Arkansas. Severe weather is not expected.
