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

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

HEAVY RAIN.
RISK...LIMITED.
    AREA...EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN ARKANSAS.
    ONSET...ONGOING.

THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.

AREA...EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN ARKANSAS.
ONSET...ONGOING.

DANGEROUS HEAT.
RISK...LIMITED.
AREA...SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND WEST CENTRAL ARKANSAS.
ONSET...ONGOING.

DISCUSSION...
SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUE TO DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS
EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS IN A WARM AND MOIST
AIRMASS. THE GREATEST COVERAGE THIS AFTERNOON SHOULD REMAIN ACROSS
PORTIONS OF NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND INTO FAR NORTHWEST ARKANSAS AND
ALSO NEAR A RESIDUAL OUTFLOW BOUNDARY NEAR INTERSTATE 40. LOCALLY
HEAVY RAIN AND GUSTY WINDS TO 50 MPH WILL BE THE PRIMARY CONCERNS
FROM THE STRONGEST STORMS. SOME OF THE THUNDERSTORMS MAY LINGER
INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS...BUT THE COVERAGE SHOULD DIMINISH WITH
THE LOSS OF DAYTIME HEATING.

IN ADDITION TO THE THUNDERSTORMS...AFTERNOON HEAT INDEX VALUES
ALONG AND SOUTH OF INTERSTATE 40 WILL APPROACH AND POSSIBLY EXCEED
TRIPLE DIGITS.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION NOT EXPECTED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
THURSDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL.
FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY...NO HAZARDS.
TUESDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
THE BETTER THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL WILL SHIFT TO AREAS SOUTH OF
INTERSTATE 40 ON THURSDAY AS A FRONT MOVES THROUGH THE AREA. GUSTY
WINDS AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN WILL AGAIN BE THE MAIN THREATS.

THE NEXT CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS WILL ARRIVE TOWARD THE MIDDLE
OF NEXT WEEK AS ANOTHER FRONTAL BOUNDARY APPROACHES THE REGION.
