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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong and gusty southerly winds are in the forecast today,
especially across northern and eastern Arkansas. Winds will
average 15 to 25 mph, with gusts over 30 mph.

Showers and thunderstorms in Oklahoma will weaken and become
more spotty as they move into the region. Isolated to scattered
precipitation is in the forecast through tonight.

While a severe storm or two cannot be ruled out, severe weather
will be much of an issue near a storm system tracking from
Kansas to Iowa.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Arkansas will be between a ridge of high pressure to the southeast
and a front and stormy conditions in the Plains on Thursday. Only
isolated to scattered precipitation is expected locally.

Beyond Thursday, high pressure will weaken and storminess will build
into the state. Unsettled conditions are expected, with several
rounds of thunderstorms through the weekend.

There is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms on Friday with large
hail and damaging winds the main concerns. Locally heavy rainfall
will also occur.

Later forecasts will refine the timing of these thunderstorm

.Spotter Information Statement...
