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

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT

A LINE OF STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS IS EXPECTED TO SWEEP INTO
WESTERN ARKANSAS AFTER MIDNIGHT AND INTO CENTRAL ARKANSAS BY
SUNRISE. THIS LINE WILL PRODUCE GUSTY WINDS AND LARGE HAIL ALONG
WITH LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN. WHILE A TORNADO CAN NOT BE COMPLETELY RULED
OUT...THE MAIN CONCERNS WILL BE THE WIND AND HAIL THREAT. AS SUCH...
A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH IS NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 5 AM FOR THE
WESTERN THIRD OF THE STATE.

THE WESTERN PART OF THE STATE WILL BE THE MOST SUSCEPTIBLE TO SEVERE
WEATHER WITH THE LINE EXPECTED TO WEAKEN SOMEWHAT AS IT APPROACHES
CENTRAL SECTIONS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO BE ONGOING WEDNESDAY MORNING. AGAIN...WITH
ANY SEVERE STORMS...LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS WILL BE THE
PRIMARY CONCERN.

THE STORMS WILL MOVE EASTWARD ON WEDNESDAY MORNING...AND WILL LIKELY
BE EAST OF THE STATE BY MID AFTERNOON. IF THE AIR MASS CAN RECOVER
BEHIND THE STORMS...AND SUFFICIENT WARMING/DESTABILIZING OCCURS...
ADDITIONAL SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MAY DEVELOP ALONG AND AHEAD OF
THE SLOW-MOVING FRONTAL BOUNDARY. IF ADDITIONAL STORMS CAN DEVELOP
AND BECOME SEVERE...ALL MODES WOULD BE POSSIBLE. THE TORNADO THREAT
WILL BE HIGHER WITH THESE STORMS.

AT THIS TIME...IT DOES APPEAR THAT SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE
POSSIBLE ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AS WELL.

HEAVY RAINFALL AND MORE WIDESPREAD FLOODING IS ALSO POSSIBLE THIS
WEEKEND AS SEVERAL ROUNDS OF SHOWERS AND STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO MOVE
ACROSS THE STATE.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION MAY BE NECESSARY WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING.
