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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

A COMPLEX OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE MOVING EASTWARD
ACROSS MUCH OF ARKANSAS THIS MORNING. ALTHOUGH THE CHANCES OF
ORGANIZED SEVERE WEATHER WILL REMAIN LOW...GUSTY WINDS AND SMALL
HAIL WILL ACCOMPANY SOME OF THE STRONGER STORMS. LOCALLY HEAVY
RAINFALL WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE...INCREASING THE THREAT OF FLASH
FLOODING IN SOME AREAS.

THE ACTIVITY WILL GRADUALLY WEAKEN AND SHIFT EAST OF ARKANSAS BY
EARLY THIS AFTERNOON.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

WE CAN EXPECT A BRIEF RESPITE IN THE UNSETTLED WEATHER PATTERN ON
THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE REGION.

THE AFOREMENTIONED HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM EVENTUALLY SHIFT EAST OF
ARKANSAS LATER ON FRIDAY. MEANWHILE...A NEW STORM SYSTEM WILL FORM
TO THE SOUTHWEST.

THE NEW SYSTEM WILL BE SLOWED BY A STRENGTHENING UPPER RIDGE TO THE
EAST...ALLOWING MOISTURE TO BUILD FROM KANSAS TO TEXAS.
EVENTUALLY...THIS MOISTURE IS EXPECTED TO WORK INTO THE AREA OVER
THE WEEKEND. PRECIPITATION CHANCES WILL GO UP...AND RAIN COULD BE
HEAVY AT TIMES.

THIS POTENTIAL HEAVY RAIN EVENT WILL BE MONITORED CLOSELY. THE
GROUND IS NEARLY SATURATED AND RIVERS ARE RUNNING HIGH. IF THE EVENT
MATERIALIZES...FLASH FLOODING AND MORE RIVER FLOODING WILL BECOME
CONCERNS.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT ANTICIPATED AT THIS TIME.
