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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A cold front will move through the state today with gusty winds
shifting from the southwest to the northeast at 10 to 20 mph with
higher gusts. Caution is advised on area lakes.

Showers will accompany this cold front as it moves through the
state but rain chances will ramp up significantly tonight as an
upper level system arrives. Rain is likely statewide with a very
slight chance of some wintry weather along the Missouri border.
No accumulation or impacts are expected as temperatures will
remain a few degrees above freezing.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Widespread moderate to heavy rainfall is expected to affect the
forecast area Saturday, and then again Monday through the middle
of next week as a frontal boundary moves slowly through the
region. At this time, the heaviest rains look to affect the
northwest half of he state. Widespread amounts of 2 to 4 inches
will be possible, with locally higher amounts. Given the ongoing
drought conditions, the chance of flash flooding or river flooding
does not seem extremely high at this time.

However, confidence in the exact placement of heavy rains, as well
as the amounts expected, is not extremely high at this time.
Therefore it is worth monitoring the forecast in the days to come.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
