This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of South Central
and Southwest Arkansas, North Central and Northwest Louisiana,
Southeast Oklahoma, and East and Northeast Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight...

A tight pressure gradient between surface low pressure
over the Central and Southern Plains and surface high pressure
centered off the Middle Atlantic Coast, will produce Southerly
winds of 15 to 20 MPH with higher gusts to 25 to 30 MPH. Boaters
should exercise caution on area lakes and waterways due to rough
chop conditions which can capsize small craft. East and West bound
high profile vehicles will be affected by the winds and should be
alert for sudden high wind gusts. Showers and thunderstorms will
be possible during the day and overnight but should be non severe.
No hazardous weather is expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday...

Showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect the area for the
late part of the week with a series of upper level disturbances
spreading over head along with available Gulf moisture and
afternoon heating. Convection become more numerous and widespread
for Saturday into Sunday as an upper level trough of low pressure
followed by another stronger disturbance nudges a cold front
slowly across the Four State Region. Some of the thunderstorms
will be capable of producing hail, strong and gusty winds, deadly
lightning, and locally heavy rainfall that may produce ponding of
water in streets, low lying and poor drainage areas during the
weekend. Rainfall will end by early Monday but by Tuesday another
in a series of upper level disturbances drop down across the
Central and Southern sections of the country pushing another cold
front across the area.


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