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

.DAY ONE...This evening and Tonight.

THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Far southeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...This evening.

POOR VISIBILITY.
    RISK...Limited.
    AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas.
    ONSET...After midnight.

DISCUSSION...
The bulk of showers and thunderstorms have shifted south of the
Oklahoma border late this afternoon. However...there remains a
slim chance of an isolated shower or thunderstorm across far
southeast Oklahoma near the Red River into the evening hours.
No severe weather is expected.

Some areas received 2 to 4 inches of rain overnight. This has
caused some area rivers and streams to rise. A flood warning
remains in effect for Osage County...where localized flooding is
occurring on county roads. No additional heavy rains are expected
so water should recede by tonight. Use caution when traveling and
do not attempt to cross flooded roads.

In addition...areas of fog may develop overnight across eastern
Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
TUESDAY...No Hazards.
WEDNESDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential.
THURSDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
FRIDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
SATURDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
SUNDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Thunderstorm chances will return late Wednesday night and Thursday
as a cold front moves south into the area. This front will stall
across the area by Friday as a strong upper level storm system
approaches from the west. Thunderstorms, some possibly severe and
with heavy rainfall, will become more likely Friday into Saturday
as this system moves across the southern Plains.
