This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of south central
Arkansas...southwest Arkansas...north central Louisiana...
northwest Louisiana...southeast Oklahoma...east Texas and
northeast Texas.

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

Conditions are coming together for increased chances of showers
and thunderstorms today. Thunderstorm coverage should be greatest
along and north of the Interstate 20 corridor of Northeast Texas
and Northern Louisiana which includes Southeast Oklahoma and
Southwest Arkansas. Some of these thunderstorms could be strong
with strong winds and small hail possible. An isolated severe
thunderstorm cannot be completely ruled out producing damaging
wind gusts and large hail. Further to the south across Deep East
Texas into West Central and East Central Louisiana, thunderstorm
development will depend on the degree of daytime heating. Showers
and thunderstorms should decrease in coverage and intensity
overnight tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday...

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will again be possible along
and east of a line from Lufkin Texas to Shreveport Louisiana to El
Dorado Arkansas on Tuesday before drier air begins to move into
the region from the west along with upper level ridging. We then
begin to look to our west for late week into the weekend when
strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible with the approach
of a vigorous upper level trough. Timing for this convection
appears to be late Friday Night and throughout the day Saturday
before cooler and drier air funnels into the region on Sunday.


While and isolated strong to severe thunderstorm cannot be ruled
out through this evening, activation of emergency management
personnel...amateur radio operators...and storm spotters should
not be needed through tonight.
