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

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Mainly along and west of Highway 75.
ONSET...Late tonight.

SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Northeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
There is a very low risk of large hail and damaging winds between
9 pm and midnight this evening for parts of Osage and Pawnee
counties. A limited risk of severe winds exists mainly along and
west of highway 75 after midnight tonight.

Supercell thunderstorms in the Oklahoma and Texas panhandle
border region at this time will lift northeast this evening. It
is not out of the question that an isolated storm may come close
or possibly move into Osage or Pawnee counties after 9 pm this
evening. If this occurs, large hail and damaging winds will be
the primary hazards.

A line of storms is expected to organize to our west tonight and
move into eastern Oklahoma by early Wednesday morning. Damaging
straight line winds will be the primary threat, mainly along and
west of highway 75. Storms should weaken as they move east of
Highway 75 towards daybreak.

Southerly winds may continue to gust to near 30 miles an hour
across parts of northeast Oklahoma overnight.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Local Spotter Activation May Be Needed.

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

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
There is a low chance of storms ahead of a Pacific front on
Wednesday, mainly in western Arkansas. South to southwest winds
will gust in the 25 to 35 mile an hour range.

The next storm system will begin to affect the region Thursday
night and will continue through Saturday night. Multiple rounds
of storms will bring severe weather and heavy rains which may lead
to more flooding.
