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

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and Tonight

Showers and thunderstorms will remain possible through tonight
as a strong storm system moves through the state. There is a
potential of severe weather this afternoon and early this evening.
A fast moving line of storms is expected, with strong to damaging
winds possible. Some storms may show signs of rotation, and this
could lead to isolated tornadoes.

Rain will be heavy at times, especially in northern and central
sections of the state. Rainfall totals from one to two inches will
be common, with locally higher amounts. In the southeast, half
inch to inch amounts are in the forecast.

Given recent heavy to excessive rain, any additional precipitation
will aggravate high water issues that already exist across much of
the area.

Gusty south to southwest winds are expected in the southern
and eastern counties through this evening. Wind speeds will
average 15 to 25 mph, and gusts could exceed 30 mph in places.
Caution is advised on areas lakes.

Most precipitation will end tonight, with drier air building into
the region. Showers may linger in the southeast overnight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday Through Friday

Additional heavy rainfall will be possible by the middle of next
week as showers and thunderstorms return to the forecast. Severe
weather may also become a concern as well. However, details
regarding the heavy rainfall and severe weather threat remain
uncertain this far out. Even so...river flooding will likely be
continuing from the current heavy rain event.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation will be needed today in anticipation of severe
weather expected across the area this afternoon through the evening
