   OVERNIGHT...

THIS OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL ARKANSAS AS WELL AS
MUCH OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA.

.DAY ONE...THROUGH TONIGHT.

FLASH FLOODING.
RISK...SIGNIFICANT.
AREA...EASTERN OKLAHOMA...WEST CENTRAL AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.
ONSET...ONGOING.


DISCUSSION...
FLOODING REMAINS ONGOING ACROSS MUCH OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA TODAY. 3 TO
6 INCHES OF RAIN HAS FALLEN SINCE MIDNIGHT MUCH OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA.
DANGEROUS AND POTENTIALLY LIFE THREATENING FLOODING WILL CONTINUE
TONIGHT... AS ADDITIONAL RAIN AND  SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL
IMPACT FAR EASTERN OKLAHOMA...WEST CENTRAL AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.

QUICK ACTION SHOULD BE TAKEN WHEN FLOOD WARNINGS ARE ISSUED. A FLASH
FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR ALL OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS THROUGH TONIGHT.

WHILE LESS INTENSE RAINFALL IS EXPECTED OVERALL DURING THE OVERNIGHT
HOURS...AT A MINIMUM EXTENSIVE AREAL AND MAIN STEM RIVER FLOODING

ACTIVATION OF THE REGIONAL SPOTTER NETWORK IS NOT EXPECTED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
MONDAY...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL...HIGH WIND POTENTIAL.
TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
THE HEAVIEST  RAINFALL WILL HAVE MOVES EAST AND NORTHEAST OF THE
REGION BY MONDAY MORNING. HOWEVER...A LARGE COMPLEX OF STORMS IS
EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ACROSS CENTRAL TEXAS AND TRACK INTO FAR
SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND PORTIONS OF WESTERN ARKANSAS MONDAY EVENING
AND CONTINUE INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. ADDITIONAL RAINFALL ACROSS
THESE AREAS WILL LIKELY WILL QUICKLY WORSEN ANY ONGOING FLOOD
PROBLEMS.

DAY TO DAY THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL BE MAINTAINED FOR MUCH OF
THIS UPCOMING WEEK. COVERAGE AND INTENSITY OF EXPECTED RAINFALL
AMOUNTS WILL BE FURTHER REFINED IN LATER FORECASTS.

WITH LITTLE DAY TO DAY RECOVERY ANTICIPATED WITH THE LARGE STEM
RIVERS EXPERIENCING MODERATE TO SIGNIFICANT FLOODING...ANY
ADDITIONAL RAINFALL THAT OCCURS DURING THE WEEK IN THE BASINS
MOST AT RISK WILL PROLONG FLOOD ISSUES IN THOSE AREAS.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PLANNING STATEMENT...
RESPONSE TO FLOODING...SOME SIGNIFICANT...SHOULD BE EXPECTED
THROUGH TONIGHT...ESPECIALLY FOR AREAS NEAR LARGER RIVER BASINS.
LIFE THREATENING FLASH FLOODING WILL MOST LIKELY WITHIN THE HEAVIER
