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...

Showers and thunderstorms that developed early this morning over
McCurtain County Oklahoma and much of Southwest Arkansas north of
a stationary front, are expected to gradually shift east northeast
out of the area later this morning. However, locally heavy
rainfall and the potential for localized flash flooding will
exist over portions of Southwest Arkansas this morning before the
storms exit the region. A complex of showers and thunderstorms
over Southern Oklahoma and North Texas will spread east into
Northeast Texas, Southeast Oklahoma, Southwest Arkansas by mid to
late morning, and possibly into extreme Northern Louisiana this
afternoon near the stationary front. Locally gusty winds, brief
heavy rainfall, which may result in minor flooding of low lying,
poor drainage areas, will be possible from these storms later
this morning and afternoon. While much of these showers and
thunderstorms should diminish this evening with the loss of
heating, additional isolated to widely scattered showers and
thunderstorms may redevelop late tonight over Southeast Oklahoma
and Southwest Arkansas near and north of the front as it drifts
north. In addition, temperatures across portions of Deep East
Texas and North Louisiana will climb into the mid 90s this
afternoon. When combined with the high humidity, afternoon heat
indices will near 105 degrees.

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

Isolated to widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will be
possible Tuesday afternoon over Southwest Arkansas and North
Louisiana. Locally gusty winds and brief heavy rainfall will be
possible in the stronger storms, which will diminish during the
evening. Meanwhile, an upper level ridge of high pressure will
build west into the region Tuesday through Friday, resulting in
temperatures climbing into the mid 90s over much of the region.
When combined with the high humidity, afternoon heat indices will
near or exceed 105 degrees each day. Isolated to scattered
showers and thunderstorms may return to the region this weekend,
as an upper level disturbance drops southeast across Arkansas and
the lower Mississippi Valley.


Activation of emergency managers, spotter networks, and amateur
radio operators, may be needed today for rainfall reports and the
potential for localized flash flooding.
