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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Severe thunderstorms will become possible by early this evening
across the northern/northwestern half of Arkansas. While uncertainty
exists on whether storms can form and become mature, any storm that
does form will have the potential to produce very large hail and
damaging winds. These storms may also be capable of producing a
tornado or two.

By later this evening and into the early morning hours on Sunday,
the potential for seeing more organized thunderstorms will increase
as a cold front drops south towards the state. These thunderstorms
could also become severe, with damaging winds possible with the
strongest storms as this activity looks to form into a larger, more
organized line or complex. Large hail and a few brief tornadoes will
also be possible as this line or complex moves southward through
much of Arkansas by early Sunday morning. Locally heavy rain will
also be possible, resulting in an isolated flash flood threat.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

By Sunday morning, the threat for seeing severe weather will have
decreased, but the cold front will still be dropping south across
the state. Additional thunderstorms will be possible Sunday
afternoon and evening across the southeast half of the state as the
cold front pushes through this region of Arkansas. Additional strong
to severe thunderstorms may again be possible during this period.

Calmer and drier conditions will be seen for Monday into Tuesday.
The threat for hazardous weather will then become low.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation may be needed tonight and early Sunday.
