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

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

A complex of showers and thunderstorms will continue to progress
southeast across Southeast Oklahoma, Northeast Texas, and
Southwest Arkansas this morning, weakening as it enters extreme
Northern Louisiana by mid to late morning. Isolated to scattered
showers and thunderstorms may redevelop later this afternoon and
evening over portions of East Texas, North Louisiana, and extreme
Southern Arkansas, along remnant boundaries leftover from the
morning storms. Brief heavy rainfall and locally gusty winds will
be possible in the stronger storms.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday...

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible
across the region Friday, where a weak upper level disturbance
could linger over the region. Another complex of showers and
thunderstorms may move into the area from the north late Friday
night and Saturday morning ahead of another upper level
disturbance, but weaken as it enters portions of extreme Northeast
Texas and Southwest Arkansas. However, additional redevelopment
may occur Saturday afternoon and again Sunday afternoon as the
upper level disturbance lingers over the region. Showers and
thunderstorms should become more isolated Monday through
Wednesday, but temperatures through the entire period are expected
to climb into the lower to mid 90s. When combined with the
humidity, heat indices will range from 100 to 105 degrees each
day.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Activation of emergency managers, skywarn networks, and amateur
radio operators, should not be needed today or tonight.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of north central
Louisiana, northwest Louisiana, east Texas and northeast Texas.

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

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible
later this morning through this evening over East Texas and North
Louisiana south of Interstate 20, as a complex of showers and
thunderstorms over Northeast Texas and Southwest Arkansas
continues to shift southeast and gradually weaken as it
approaches the area. However, leftover boundaries from this
thunderstorm complex could focus additional isolated to scattered
shower and thunderstorm development this afternoon during peak
heating, before diminishing later this evening. Locally gusty
winds and brief heavy rainfall will be possible in the stronger
storms.

In addition, afternoon temperatures are expected to climb into the
mid 90s this afternoon especially over portions of Deep East Texas
and much of Northcentral Louisiana. When combined with the
humidity, heat indices will range from 105 to 108 degrees. As a
result, a Heat Advisory remains in effect for these areas this
afternoon.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday...

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible
across the region Friday, where a weak upper level disturbance
could linger over the region. Another complex of showers and
thunderstorms may move into the area from the north late Friday
night and Saturday morning ahead of another upper level
disturbance, but weaken as it enters portions of extreme Northeast
Texas and Southwest Arkansas. However, additional redevelopment
may occur Saturday afternoon and again Sunday afternoon as the
upper level disturbance lingers over the region. Showers and
thunderstorms should become more isolated to widely scattered
Monday through Wednesday, but temperatures through the entire
period are expected to climb into the lower to mid 90s. When
combined with the humidity, heat indices will approach or possibly
exceed 105 degrees each day.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Activation of emergency managers, skywarn networks, and amateur
radio operators, should not be needed today or tonight.
