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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

AREAS OF LOW CLOUDS AND PATCHY FOG WILL BE NOTED OVER SOUTHERN
ARKANSAS THIS MORNING. CONDITIONS WILL IMPROVE AS THE DAY
PROGRESSES. THIS WILL BE DUE TO A COLD FRONT MOVING THROUGH THE
REGION FROM THE NORTH. ANY SHOWERS ARE EXPECTED TO BE ISOLATED.

THE FRONT WILL STALL THIS EVENING IN NORTHERN LOUISIANA...BUT WILL
DRIFT BACK TO THE NORTH TONIGHT. THIS WILL BE IN RESPONSE TO A STORM
SYSTEM APPROACHING FROM THE PLAINS. THE SYSTEM AND THE FRONT WILL
LIKELY TRIGGER SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IN NORTHWEST
SECTIONS OF THE STATE AFTER MIDNIGHT. RAINFALL IN THE NORTHWEST
SHOULD AVERAGE A QUARTER TO THREE QUARTERS OF AN INCH.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

AS THE STORM SYSTEM GOES BY TO THE NORTH...THE AFOREMENTIONED FRONT
WILL SLIDE BACK TOWARD THE GULF COAST WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY.
SURROUNDING THE FRONT...THERE WILL BE CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION
MAINLY IN SOUTHERN ARKANSAS.

THE FRONT WILL STAY TO THE SOUTH ON FRIDAY...WITH LITTLE IF ANY RAIN
EXPECTED. THIS WEEKEND...THE FRONT WILL RACE TO THE NORTH AS AS A
LARGE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE STRENGTHENS OVER THE SOUTHEAST UNITED
STATES. AT THE SAME TIME...A NEW STORM SYSTEM WILL FORM TO THE
SOUTHWEST.

THE NEW SYSTEM WILL BE SLOWED BY THE RIDGE TO THE EAST...AND THIS
WILL ALLOW MOISTURE TO BUILD FROM KANSAS TO TEXAS. EVENTUALLY...THIS
MOISTURE IS EXPECTED TO WORK INTO THE AREA BY LATE IN THE WEEKEND OR
EARLY NEXT WEEK. PRECIPITATION CHANCES WILL GO UP...AND RAIN COULD
BE HEAVY.

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 MAY BE NECESSARY THROUGH TONIGHT GIVEN THE
POSSIBILITY OF SEVERE WEATHER.
