THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR A LARGE PART OF ARKANSAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD INTO ARKANSAS. THUS...NO
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

BY MONDAY...RAIN CHANCES WILL RETURN TO THE FORECAST...AS SOUTHWEST
UPPER LEVEL FLOW SETS UP...AND LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPS IN THE PLAINS.
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE AS SEVERAL UPPER LEVEL
SYSTEMS MOVE THROUGH THE REGION AND INTERACT WITH THE SURFACE SYSTEM
SLOWLY APPROACHING FROM THE PLAINS.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE A POSSIBILITY ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY.
LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS WOULD BE THE PRIMARY THREAT WITH ANY
SEVERE THUNDERSTORM. WITH LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR PRESENT...TORNADOES
WILL BE A POSSIBILITY AS WELL.

ALSO...ABUNDANT MOISTURE WILL BE IN PLACE...AND WITH THE OVER ALL
SLOW MOVEMENT OF THE SURFACE SYSTEM...STORMS WOULD TEND TO FORM AND
MOVE OVER THE SAME AREAS. THIS WOULD INCREASE THE POTENTIAL FOR
LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL.

KEEP IN MIND THAT THE FORECAST WILL LIKELY CHANGE BETWEEN NOW AND
THEN. MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE
FOR FURTHER UPDATES.
