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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Some strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible this morning
across western portions of the state as activity from Oklahoma and
Texas moves east into the state. Damaging winds will be the
primary threat with the strongest storms this morning. Expect this
activity to dissipate by mid-morning.

Additional thunderstorms will develop this afternoon across
western and portions of central Arkansas. This activity will start
off scattered...but will see these thunderstorms become more
organized into a line or complex by late this afternoon and into
the early evening hours. This line will move east across western
into central sections of the state during the evening and into
the overnight hours. Expect this line of thunderstorms to be east
of the state by around sunrise Thursday morning.

The primary severe weather threats will be large damaging hail
greater than 1 inch in diameter and damaging winds in excess of 60
mph. Tornadoes will also be possible...especially across northern
sections of the state this afternoon and evening with the
discrete thunderstorm activity. A tornado threat will also exist
across a larger portion of the area as the line of thunderstorms
moves east late this evening and overnight. There will also be an
isolated flash flood threat...especially where any thunderstorms
train over the same areas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday Through Tuesday

Additional showers and thunderstorms will be possible on
Thursday...as the cold front moves across Arkansas. Isolated
severe storms are possible, primarily ahead of the front. Damaging
wind gusts and large hail will be the primary threat with any
severe storms.

There will be a possibility of strong to severe thunderstorms early
next week...around late Sunday into Monday night. Also...stronger
storms could produce locally heavy rainfall. This is still
several days out...and the forecast could change quite a bit
between now and then. Stay informed by monitoring the latest
forecasts and statements from your NWS office.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation is likely...especially this afternoon and
tonight over much of the state.
