.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday...

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible
Friday across Southeast Oklahoma and the northern sections of
Southwest Arkansas, near a stationary front that will lie over
these areas. These showers and thunderstorms are expected to
increase by mid to late evening Friday over extreme Northeast
Texas, into much of Southwest Arkansas, along and ahead of a cold
front associated with an upper level low pressure system that will
shift east across Northeast Oklahoma and Northern Arkansas. Given
the strong shear and instability parameters Friday evening, some
of these storms may become severe over portions of extreme
Northeast Texas, Southeast Oklahoma, and Southwest Arkansas Friday
evening, with damaging winds and large hail possible. However,
these storms are expected to weaken after midnight Friday night
with the loss of instability and weakening frontal forcing. Cooler
and much drier air will spill south into the region in wake of
the cold front this weekend, before a warming trend commences


Activation of emergency management personnel...amateur radio
operators...and storm spotters will not be needed through tonight.
