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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
RISK...Elevated.
AREA...Northeast Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...

Strong and gusty southwest winds will continue into the afternoon
across eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas due to a strong low
pressure system to our north. Wind gusts in the 40 to 50 mph range
can be expected across northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas.
Wind gusts should begin to decrease by mid afternoon and will drop
off significantly by sunset this evening.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
THURSDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential.
FRIDAY and SATURDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
SUNDAY thru TUESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...

Strong to severe storms are expected to develop out west along
the dryline Thursday afternoon. Clusters or lines of storms will
likely evolve from this activity and could move into portions of
eastern Oklahoma Thursday night. Damaging winds would be the
primary hazard. A band of strong to severe storms will develop
again Friday afternoon to our west and will move east into the
region late Friday and especially Friday night. An initial severe
hail and wind threat will transition to a heavy rain/flood threat
as storms train over the same areas along frontal zone. Storm
potential will shift east into western Arkansas and southeast
Oklahoma on Saturday, with a decreasing threat for severe weather
and flooding. A system sliding across the region in a northwest
flow pattern aloft will bring more thunder chances early next
week.
