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...

The combination of the hot temperatures and relative humidity
values will result in afternoon heat index values from near 100 to
103 degrees. Precautions should be taken to limit heat related
illnesses for those venturing out or working during the heat of
the day. No hazardous weather is expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday...

An upper level disturbance will be moving around and through the
base of an upper level trough across the middle sections of the
country Sunday, driving a cold front into the Four State Region.
Isolated to scattered thunderstorms, some of which will be severe
and mainly accompanied by the risk for potentially damaging wind
gusts, are possible Sunday afternoon and evening across the Mid
South and into Arkansas and Northeast Texas. The cold front/leading
outflow will be a focus for thunderstorm development with a rich
low-level supply of moisture that will result in a very unstable
boundary layer. Hail and wind will be the primary threats with the
stronger storms. This activity is expected to gradually weaken
during the evening.


Activation of emergency management personnel...amateur radio
operators...and storm spotters will not be needed through tonight,
but may be required for the afternoon and evening Sunday.
