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. Some of this will be widespread this
morning, especially across the Middle Red River Valley of
Northeast Texas, Southeast Oklahoma and Southwest Arkansas where
excessive heavy rainfall will be possible. 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.
