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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

HIGH PRESSURE WILL PREVAIL OVER ARKANSAS. THUS...NO THUNDERSTORM
ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY

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 WEDNESDAY
NIGHT AS LOW PRESSURE DRAGS A FRONT INTO ARKANSAS. 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.

THE FRONT IS EXPECTED TO STALL OUT NEAR SOUTHERN ARKANSAS BY
THURSDAY. THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL INCREASE ON FRIDAY...AS AN UPPER
LEVEL SYSTEM MOVES INTO THE REGION FROM THE SOUTHWEST AND PUSHES THE
STALLED FRONT BACK TO THE NORTH. STRONG THUNDERSTORMS MAY BE
POSSIBLE AGAIN.

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.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT EXPECTED AT THIS TIME. HOWEVER...SPOTTERS
SHOULD CONTINUE TO MONITOR FORECAST TRENDS IN THE COMING DAYS.
