...MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF SEVERE WEATHER AND FLOODING POTENTIAL THROUGH NEXT
WEEKEND...

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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

DISCUSSION...
River flooding continues at a few locations in northeast Oklahoma.
Details can be found in the latest Flood Statements from the
National Weather Service in Tulsa. No additional hazardous weather
is expected through tonight.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
MONDAY...No Hazard.
TUESDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
WEDNESDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential.
THURSDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
An active weather pattern will develop during the early to middle
part of the upcoming work week...with multiple rounds of severe
thunderstorms and flooding potential likely into next weekend.

A strong cap will remain in place for much of the day Tuesday
suppressing thunderstorm development until late afternoon or
evening, as the cap finally begins to weaken. Scattered
thunderstorms will develop as a cold front moves into northeast
Oklahoma. Any storms that develop will likely be severe with the
main threats of very large hail and damaging winds. Tornado
potential, although nonzero, is expected to be very limited. The
severe threat should end Wednesday morning as the line of storms
shifts east of the area.

A stronger storm system is expected to move into the Four Corners
region by late week, with the threat for more widespread and
significant severe weather Friday and Saturday. A few elevated
storms will be possible as early as late Thursday night and into
Friday morning as a warm front begins to lift north. Multiple
rounds of severe weather will be possible Friday and Saturday
before a Pacific front moves through Sunday morning. Large hail
and damaging winds will be likely, including the threat for
tornadoes. In addition, locally heavy rainfall is expected which
could lead to flash flooding and additional rises on area rivers.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PLANNING STATEMENT...
Continue to monitor future forecasts and outlooks, especially
concerning the Friday and Saturday severe weather and flooding
potential, as overall timing and specific severe weather threats
will continue to be refined.
