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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Breezy south winds will develop this morning and reach speeds of
10 to 15 mph with gusts possibly approaching 30 mph at times,
especially over the Delta regions. Caution is advised on area
lakes and waterways for these gusty winds.

Isolated thunderstorms will also be possible during the day. No
severe weather is expected but the threat of cloud to ground
lightning exists with any storm.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday Through Saturday

A very unsettled period is in store for the region with heavy rain
starting Tuesday evening and continuing through a good part of the

Strong southwest flow aloft will interact with a very slow moving
cold front to produce periods of heavy rain Tuesday night through
Wednesday morning over the northwest half of the state. Several
inches of rain will be possible from Little Rock to the north and
west through Wednesday morning. Given this, there is a moderate
risk of flash flooding in this part of the region.

The front will be located from southwest to northeast Arkansas
Wednesday morning with the focus of the heavy rain shifting to
central and eastern sections of the state.

Subsequent periods of rain will follow statewide as the front stalls
to the south Thursday and lifts back into the area by Saturday. The
rain will be heavy at times.

Through next weekend, the forecast calls for four to six inches of
rain for much of Arkansas, with locally more than half a foot of
liquid. If this much rain occurs, flash flooding and river flooding
will become a concern.

Spotter activation will not be needed.
