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

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and Tonight.

THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Western Arkansas.
ONSET...Late afternoon through early evening.

RIVER FLOOD.
    RISK...Elevated.
    AREA...Northeast Oklahoma.
    ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
The complex of thunderstorms which affected much of the area
overnight has weakened and only light showers remain. Most of the
precipitation is affecting southeast portions of Oklahoma and far
western Arkansas. Isolated thunderstorms are possible across
portions of western Arkansas where there are some additional
showers developing over the cold pool. However, 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.

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.
