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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Dry weather will continue tonight. The wildfire danger remains
elevated with the Arkansas Forestry Commission indicating a moderate
to high danger across Arkansas. Burn bans are posted for almost half
the counties across the state.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday Through Wednesday

Dry conditions will continue on Friday. However, moisture levels
will start rebounding by Saturday as a storm system and cold front
approach from the Plains.

Ahead of the front, strong to severe thunderstorms will likely
develop from southeast Kansas into central and eastern Oklahoma and
northern Texas Saturday afternoon and evening. Precipitation will
build into western Arkansas mostly after midnight, and will tend to
weaken. Even so, some severe weather is possible, with damaging
winds the main concern.

Showers and scattered thunderstorms will continue on Sunday across
much of the region, especially in the morning. Rainfall from a half
inch to an inch and a half will be widespread, with local amounts
over two inches.

The front will exit to the southeast on Monday. Cooler and drier air
will follow early next week.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation will not be needed through Friday.
