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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

No significant weather is expected today or tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday Through Wednesday

A very unsettled weather pattern is expected Friday through
Sunday, with some potential severe storms and excessive rain
forecast for the period.

On Friday, a warm front will be nearly stationary across northern
or central Arkansas. As an upper weather system moves through the
region, showers and thunderstorms will develop mainly north of
Little Rock, especially during the late evening and into the
overnight hours. There will be some potential for severe storms to
develop near the boundary, with large hail and damaging winds the
main threats. Areas of heavy rain may also be seen, which could
lead to flash flooding across the area.

Rainfall across northern Arkansas will be ongoing heading into
Saturday. Later in the day, a storm system in the Plains will drag
a cold front into the state. Ahead of the front, a large area of
showers and thunderstorms will sweep through the region Saturday
night and Sunday. Severe storms will again be possible with
isolated tornadoes, damaging winds, and large hail possible. Heavy
rain will again be seen, with several inches of rain possible.
This will continue the flash flooding and river flooding threat
through the weekend. The widespread and heavy rain may produce
life threatening flash flooding. Also, area parts of tributaries
would flood, including the Black, Buffalo, Cache, Eleven Point,
Fourche La Fave, Petit Jean, Spring, and White Rivers.

Forecast details are still being worked out, including where the
stationary front will set up on Friday, and the timing of the
rounds of heavy rain. Please continue to monitor the latest
forecasts from your National Weather Service concerning this
potentially serious situation.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation will likely be needed Friday through Sunday due
to forecast severe weather and the flash flooding and river
flooding potential.
