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

DISCUSSION...
Unseasonably warm temperatures and gusty winds will prevail
this afternoon ahead of a strong cold front. The front will move
into northeast Oklahoma by mid afternoon and push east of
northwest Arkansas around midnight. Scattered thunderstorms are
expected to develop along the front, primarily southeast of
Interstate 44. Instability will be low, however winds aloft will
be strong and sufficient for isolated damaging wind potential with
the strongest storms.

Wind shear in the lowest levels may be sufficient to produce a
brief tornado across far eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas
late this afternoon and evening, however sustained updrafts will
be difficult to maintain given the speed and orientation of the
cold front.

Once the front passes, winds will remain gusty and will create a
brief window of heightened fire weather potential this afternoon,
generally west of Highway 75 across northeast Oklahoma.


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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.
TUESDAY through SUNDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Noticeably colder temperatures will follow the cold
front and prevail for the remainder of the week.
A secondary cold front will arrive later in the week
keeping temperatures below normal into next weekend.
