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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Breezy south winds will continue this afternoon...with wind speeds
of 15 to 25 mph expected. Gusts will occasionally exceed 30 mph.
As a result...caution is advised on area lakes and waterways.

Thunderstorms will remain possible through tonight across far
northwest sections of the area. However...the threat for hazardous
weather will remain low with this activity.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday Through Sunday

Multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected Tuesday
through the weekend. Several inches of rain will be possible from
Little Rock to the north and west through Wednesday...before the
axis of heavy rainfall shifts to the southeast Wednesday night
into Thursday.

Rainfall amounts through Thursday will range from 1 to 3 inches
across the southeast third of the state...to 2 to over 5 inches
possible from central and northwest sections of the state. Some
locally higher amounts cannot be ruled out in these areas. As a
result...the threat for flash and river flooding will increase
over time...even with some areas across the northern and western
portion of the state in a drought at this time.

Additional heavy rainfall will return to the forecast by late
Thursday through next weekend...with additional rainfall amounts
of 2 or more inches possible across some portion of the state.
This will result in storm total rainfall amounts through next
weekend of 2 to 3 inches across the far southeast portion of the
state...and 4 to 7 or more inches across a large portion of
Arkansas further north and west. Some locally higher amounts will
be possible. As a result...the threat for widespread river and
flash flooding will continue to increase throughout the week and
into the weekend.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
