This Outlook is for Northwest and West Central Arkansas as well as
much of Eastern Oklahoma.

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...Limited.
    AREA...Northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
Additional isolated to scattered thunderstorms should develop
overnight across parts of eastern Oklahoma and perhaps into
northwest Arkansas in response to an approaching upper level low
pressure center. These thunderstorms will contain a large hail
threat.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Local Spotter Activation May Be Needed.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
SATURDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
SUNDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
MONDAY AND TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Thunderstorms may be ongoing Saturday morning across portions of
far northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas due to the
aforementioned upper level low pressure. Coverage will diminish
from west to east through the day.

A brief lull in the thunderstorm activity will occur Saturday
night and through much of the day Sunday. Thunderstorms will
likely expand across the region late Sunday afternoon and into the
evening and overnight hours as another upper level storm system
moves through the Southern and Central Plains region. Severe
weather will be possible, with both large hail and damaging winds
being the primary threats.

The weather pattern will remain active into the next work week and
perhaps even beyond that. The next storm system will arrive toward
the middle of next week, bringing another increase in thunderstorm
potential.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PLANNING STATEMENT...
Emergency management and first responders should follow forecasts
closely, as multiple rounds of severe weather will be possible
through at least the next week.
